Thanks for coming by to see how I made the fabric leaf to go on my swatch pumpkin. It is very easy and uses the smallest of scraps.
Welcome back! Thanks for coming by to see how I made the pumpkins from fabric swatches.
As I mentioned, I had tons of fabric swatches that I had collected over the years and true to form, I simply could not throw them away. After years of collecting, the light bulb went off one day and I came up with these little swatch pumpkins as a way to use all my samples.
I actually did it! In all honesty I didn’t think I would write for the entire 31 days of the challenge. I couldn’t imagine that I would have enough to say and complete enough projects to feature. In my head, I had even planned what to say about not posting all of the days. Thankfully that unwritten post was filed in the trash.
Look what I won in a random drawing of the participants – a wonderful leather journal that will inspire me to continue to write!
Admittedly, I did have a number of the projects finished before I signed up for the challenge, but only enough for just shy of a week’s worth of posts. I kept my nose to the grindstone however and came up with enough content for the entire month. And you know what? I have more thoughts brewing in my head.
After the first half of the month, I sat down for a brainstorming session and came up with additional ideas, some of which I did not have time to get to. So those will happen and I will show them to you.
Well, did you guess at the material I used to create this version of patchwork pumpkin?
Yes, fabric swatches started it all.
Back at it today with a different type of pumpkin – the one that started this whole addiction of mine. Put your thinking caps on and guess what I (re)purposed to make this little beauty.
