Swaps and Crafts Part 2

Continuing on with another swaps and crafts post before I get too far behind! Here are two swaps I received. This one is for the felt brooch swap, a crab because I’m a Cancer. So cute!
And this one is a needlecase for the Fall Felt Swap. I love it! I love what she used for the owl’s eyes!

Here are a couple I made for the 13 days of Halloween swap. This one I crocheted a skull applique and glued it onto this little wall hanging I sewed with skull fabric. I had trouble with the grommets and Yves came to the rescue. I didn’t have anywhere to hang it so just laid it on my table to photograph.skullhanging500.jpg
This one I embroidered a freebie design I got from Craftblog of a Frankenstein Bunny and Skeleton Bunny and made into stuffies (I used another of Sienna’s old receiving blankets!). You can’t tell from the photo but the bones in the skeleton were used with glow in the dark thread.
The back was made with purple glittery fabric I got from another swap!

I really enjoyed embroidering and made another stuffie (again on one of Sienna’s old receiving blankets! Way to use them up!) This candy apple is a pattern from Wild Olive. This swap was for the Halloween Fake Food Swap.
For the same swap I made this jack o’lantern and used glow in the dark fabric paint for the eyes. I got this pattern from PlanetJune!

And this is not for a swap but a belated birthday present for my good friend Geneva, momma to Phoenix. I took this photo of them back in April at the Easter Egg hunt and I know Geneva loves this photo. I printed it out on fabric, appliqued it to another one of Sienna’s old receiving blankets and embroidered a heart. I made it into a pillow with some fabric that I got from Brenda.
And tooting my own horn here, I hand stitched the pillow closed! I only just started doing this as I found some really great detailed instructions on the internet (sorry I don’t remember the link!) I still need more practice but considering I hated handstitching, I think I’ve come a long way!genevapillowseams500.jpg

    that crab pin is adorable!

    p.s. I had a fun time this afternoon drinking hot chocolate and crafting skeletons. 🙂
