It had been a while since I’d swapped anything through Swap-Bot, and I missed it. I just had to sign up for some Halloween and fall swaps. Halloween being my favorite holiday (tied with Christmas) and fall being my favorite season.
I signed up for a fall crafts swap, and got a partner who likes bookmarks. I decided to make her a fabric one with some fall-colored leaves I had. I ended up adding some sparkly gold thread for embellishment, and loved it so much I made a second one for another partner I had for a different swap.
I needed to include two items for the fall crafts swap, and I wanted the second one to be something crocheted. My partner’s favorite color was orange, so I made her a pumpkin. I used this free pattern with a few changes, and then added a stem, leaf, and curly vine. For fun I hot glued on a jack-o-lantern face cut out of felt.
