Swapping- Halloween / Samhain/ Autumn Swap at Bits of Goodness




I just mailed off these fabric pumpkins for a swap at the Yahoo Group Bits of Goodness.  I posted about the group previously HERE. 

It is a Waldorf inspired group that runs swaps based on seasonal themes.  It is a requirement to use natural materials.  Now, I do not have children at home anymore but I do anticipate grandchildren someday so I am store-housing the goodies I get for them. 

These fall pumpkins are based on a pattern from Wee Folk Art.  If you are not familiar with the site, be sure to check them out.  They are very generous with free patterns.

This link will bring you to the Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/960637@N25/  And this one to the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/bitsofgoodness and this one to the Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Bitsofgoodness/

  3. I love your fabric pumpkins. Thanks for the pattern link. I am so jealous that you live in New England. I expect you have such beautiful fall colours on the trees right now.
