How to Make Big Felt Bats for Outdoor Halloween Decor



Outdoor Halloween decor - felt bats

 Hello crafting friends! Tomorrow is October 1st and I'm getting ready to decorate for Halloween this weekend. I love Halloween!  Usually I spend more time decorating the inside of my house than the outside but greeting those trick or treaters with a little fun is important too. Last year I used my free bat pillow pattern to cut out some big felt bats. I hung them up around my garage and I think they turned out so fun that I'm hanging them up again this year. Such an easy way to decorate!

I spent any moment of spare time I had sewing Guardians of the Galaxy costumes for my 3 littlest boys.  I'm pretty excited about how all they all turned out. I posted some pics on Instagram but I wanted to post them here too and tell a little about how I made them.
