 Boo! The BEST time of the year has almost arrived! If you don't know, October is our favorite month here at the School for Misfit Makers, because it's the spookiest season! And this year Sarah thought it would be fun to get into the spirit early and do a Sewalong Spooktacular with her Ruby Star Society Candy Please project panel!

For all of these projects you're...
