My Time to be Wicked!

I've been really looking forward to this blog hop! A big thanks as usual to Madame Samm and to Wendy for all their hard work in making this come together.
 
For my project, I designed and hand stitched a 16" table mat/penny rug in WoolFelt that I'm calling "Patch O'Jacks." It was a lot of fun to make and I think the result is quite wicked indeed!
 

 
Each Jack has its own facial expression, but they're all happy to be in the patch together!
 
Just for fun, I used Photoshop to blank out the faces to show how the pattern would look with plain pumpkins. Done this way, it's not just for Halloween:
 

 
My giveaway for this blog is...this pattern! Just click on the picture below to download the .pdf file. I hope you have fun with it!

  9. What a cute table mat! I love the fact that the punkins can have a face, or not and be Halloweenish or just fall. That's like getting two patterns for the price of one - oh yeah, you are very, very generous and are sharing the pattern with me (and everyone else). Thank you for participating, sharing your amazing creativity, being a wonderful inspiration, and being generous in sharing your pattern. Many, many thanks.
