October “Cute & Quirky” Swap – Part 2
As promised, here are some more photos of the things that I made for the Halloween swap (this also gave me a chance to kidnap and test Mr G’s new toy – a DSLR camera J).
The first item is some Halloween “bunting” with feltie bats and knitted pumpkins. I have become obsessed with bunting lately and an interested to develop it beyond its traditional triangular form.
The second item is a pumpkin-head zombie. I have to confess that this is not my own design; it is from a book called Zombie Felties by Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate. I really love these designs they are full of humorous, quirky gruesomeness and are deceptively simple to make.
I had forgotten how much I enjoy sewing and using fabrics in my work and I really liked the mix of media used in the Halloween bunting. I think this is something I am going to develop in future projects so I’m now trying to think of projects that will combine more of my crafting talents – watch this space!!
