I'd successfully resisted The Frosted Pumpkin's Dessert of the Month series for almost ten months. Sure, the Devil's Food Cake for February would make a great heart ornament, and I had visions of changing September's Candy Apple to a caramel apple, my favorite fall treat, but did I really need these patterns?
Apparently so, once I saw the Jack-o'-Lantern Candy Bucket:
It even has candy corn! I finished it using one of those nifty metal finishing forms, like a little dome you wrap the fabric around. Rather than use another for the back, I just glued it to felt.
This was the perfect project for the train trip to and from my mom (I was lucky to escape the city for the weekend).
