I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I’ve mentioned a few crafts I was working on, and finally they’re all assembled. I had a stack of plastic canvas crafts and a crochet snowman just sitting and waiting to be put together. Here’s the plastic canvas pieces, a stack of Jack-o-Lantern magnets and a Welcome sign:
Both of these patterns came from the same place, Annies Archive. I joined this site a month or so ago and still really like it. It’s a subscription service for just $2 a month and you get access to thousands of retired Annies patterns. I admit some of them are quite dated, but there is still MORE than enough to be worth $2 a month. I really like it and enjoy browsing it for some ideas.
The pumpkins are from a pattern called Scary Jacks. They are supposed to be formed into a wreath, but I just made a few and glued magnets to the back. They are 3-d and quite cute! Gluing the magnets was a bit tricky. I didn’t pay enough attention to how I glued the leaves on and on some magnets it pushed the magnet downward until it barely touched the fridge. 2-3 of these guys actually have two tiny magnets glued together to help them reach the actual fridge.
The bird is from the pattern Bluebird Welcome. I actually already sent it to a new home. The blue yarn I used is very similar to a friends house trim and I thought it would look great in her sunroom.
Stay tuned and I’ll reveal the snowman tomorrow!
