Ravenwood Whimzies Fall Pin Keep Swap

I just can’t seem to stop signing up for swaps when I see them.  Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies hosted a Fall Pin Keep Swap.  I was paired with Michelle of Simple Pleasures.  Funny, until I stumbled onto Wendy’s blog, I didn’t know what a pin keep was.  Since then, I have made several as gifts.  Now that I’m quilting again, I’ll have to make one for myself.  Anyway,  here is the cute cute Witches Hat pin keep Michelle made for me. This can double as a Halloween decoration too:

And here is the pin keep I made for Michelle. Michelle likes Amish things, so I created a little Amish girl on a pin cushion. Wendy also requested that the pin keep be mounted on something at least 4″ tall. I opted for a Ball jam jar.  This way, it can hold buttons, scissors, thimbles, and such:

Thank you Wendy for hosting this fun event!  And thank you Michelle for being my partner!  I am going to call this doll #7.  I am catching up!

  1. How fun! Love what you made and what you received! The blogging community has so many wonderful crafting exchanges.

  2. WOW…I love both of the pin keeps! I’m sure Michelle was thrilled with her little Amish doll, and how creative to mount it on a jar that she can use for storage! Great job! Thank you again for joining the swap.
