Homespun Gratitude

Hello everyone!  Hope this finds you well.  I just wanted to share a with you a project that I made for the Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #130 Challenge: Using Heat N' Bond to Make Fabric Die Cuts.  I had another project in mind, bought all the supplies for it, then found out my alphabet dies were too small.  So I went another route.....  This little bucket is what I ended up with for my project.  The Thankful die is from PTI's Counting My Blessings die set.  I didn't have a pumpkin or leaves from PTI so I used one of the primitive pumpkins from My Favorite Things stamp set.  I used some homespun fabric and also some Classic Kraft felt from PTI.  The canvas ribbon is from The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.  I topped off the pumpkin with a little PTI button threaded with twine.  Hope you like it!




Although it wasn't what I had planned, I am happy with the result.  This could be used to give treats away at Thanksgiving, a hostess gift, or let everyone at Thanksgiving fill out a little slip of paper saying what they are thankful for this year.  I am already thinking of how I could decorate the little cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
