Halloween crafting...

My mom made up the pattern for these felt bean bag bats in '86. She posted the pattern on her blog and gave my sisters and me the pattern so we could make some of our own. We all got together on a Saturday night to make them (except for Chels, who lives in the 'copa and misses out on spur of the moment hang outs). They are so cute. We filled them with beans and sewed buttons for the eyes.

After making the bats, I got the urge to make more crafts out of felt. So I got out my sewing machine, turned on my OC dvds and made these felt pumpkins. I made up the pattern on plain white paper, cut out the felt, sewed it together, filled them with cotton and sewed buttons for the eyes and mouths. An OC marathon and Halloween crafts...it doesn't get any better than that!

Your name is very apropos, because I think you got a huge helping of your mom's craft gene. Cute bats, cute pumpkins - just missing that cute Daisy.
