Fall Birthday Gift Tags

Fall birthday gift tag

My two youngest daughters were born at the beginning of fall. No, they’re not twins, but when they were growing up I called them my step-twins. You see, my stepdaughter is a day older than my youngest daughter. The most common question I got when they were young was, “do they get along?” Yes, they fight just like real sisters! My oldest is also a fall baby, along with my sister and my husband and more extended family members than I can count.  Fall is also the best holiday time of the year with Halloween and the lead-up to Christmas. For fiber artists, it’s an amazing time. Summer is over, school has started, and yarn companies are releasing new yarns and new designs to tempt us for the holidays. Sweater weather is back, hats and scarves are needed, and soon we’ll be able to cuddle up in front of the fire under a handmade afghan.

To help you with the upcoming gifts in your family, today I have a gift tag designed especially for fall birthdays. Download your free PDF here: Autumn Birthday Gift Tags

Bat Scrubby Crochet Pattern

bat scrubby

Because of the popularity of the Bat Mask Mate Crochet Pattern that I published last year, I reworked it a little bit to make a slightly smaller bat using Scrubby yarn. These cute little bats can do double duty by adding a little spookiness to your kitchen decor and also being useful when you wash dishes. Red Heart and Yarn Bee both have soft cotton Scrubby yarn that can be used to make bats as facial scrubbers. The Scrubby Sparkle yarn is great to make a bat for your dishes.

Normally to find a treasure chest you’d need a treasure map, right? With lots of scary-sounding locations such as “Bay of Despair” or “Sea of Terror”, drawings of sea monsters, and one big red X marking the spot. 

But don’t worry, I won’t make you follow a treasure map to find this pot of gold. All you need to do is sign up for the special link! Read on for more details…

Roller Skate Pillow Crochet Pattern

Roller skating was big in the 70s, and it seems to be making a comeback. My husband was a jam skater in his youth, and our children were true rink rats. If the rink was open, they were there! We even tried buying a skating business at the time, the but owner just couldn’t part with her rink. October is National Skating Month, so I made this cute pillow shaped like a roller skate. It uses blanket yarn, so it’s quick and super squishy. Crochet a few different colors for your tween’s bedroom, or add a couple to your game room decor. Show me your color combinations on Instagram.
