We are big Hal­loween fans here in the

Craft­seller of­fice. The neigh­bour­hood sud­denly be­comes alive with kids in cos­tumes (and a su­per­vis­ing, spent adult in tow), swarm­ing door-to-door of lantern-lit house­holds. We love it so much we're even happy to part with our fun-sized Mars Bars – and we don't do that of­ten! So, with all things creepy and cre­ative in mind, your Oc­to­ber is­sue is packed full of thrills for the boom­ing Hal­loween mar­ket. We have an easy-peasy, hon­ey­comb pa­per pump­kin (p.27); an adorable felt trick-or-treat bag (p.72); and mouth-wa­ter­ing rhubarb and cus­tard tarts per­fect for ghoul­ish par­ties and sweet-seek­ers on your doorstep (p.32). And of course, we have our ut­terly cute, cro­chet cover stars on page 16 – the trio of t-shirt-clad bats! Who knew bat bunt­ing could be so sweet? Bet­ter still, as it's a gar­land, it's a make Hal­loween-lov­ing shop­pers can keep and use year-af­ter-year. Else­where, fea­tures this month in­clude How to Blog and Boost Prof­its (p.43), a com­plete be­gin­ner's guide, and over on page 80, we have ten quick and easy makes for Hal­loween – all sim­ple enough to turn around in time for the spooky fes­tiv­i­ties. Happy hand­made Hal­loweens to you all! p.s. Don't forget to make your felt fox or owl brooch with the kit FREE with this is­sue. Th­ese ex­clu­sive, copyright-free de­signs are yours to sell too if you fancy!
