Here's a layout I just made recently of the Halloween my son was Spongebob Squarepants. I made the costume myself without a pattern. I just went by what Spongebob looks like. The layout background was made by inking a shade of blue on a light aqua cardstock, with the ink applied heavier towards the bottom. I used a versamarker to draw the flower shapes and then chalked on top of it. The Spongebob logo was printed from a pic online and then I handcut around it. Gary was paper pieced using Make-the-Cut with a downloaded image.
I'm not going to be modest here... I did make a pretty awesome costume. LOL
