The Autumn Bookmark Exchange

Just over a week ago, I decided it was time for a new bookmark; an autumn-themed one to match the upcoming season (which happens to be my favourite season). So I got my crafty bits together to make one.

Over on Twitter, my Twitter friend, Pat Elliott suggested a bookmark exchange - we would both make an autumn-themed bookmark and send it to the other. I thought it was a great idea!

I decided to make my bookmark out of felt using autumn colours. Autumn to me means falling leaves in gorgeous reds, orange and green tones. It also means wrapping up warm, so I made a pair of mittens bound together with string and forming a heart in the middle.

Neither of us knew what the other would come up with, only that it would be a autumn-themed so it was a lovely surprise when my bookmark arrived. Pat is a painter and she painted a gorgeous owl in autumn colours - isn't he beautiful? I love it!

The bookmark exchange was a fantastic idea and I liked how we both came up with completely different ideas within the autumn theme.
