I love Fall. Time to cozy up with a warm cup of coffee and your favorite book which in my case happens to be crochet magazine I had the opportunity to try a variety of Starbucks Fall coffees including the Starbucks VIA Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Starbucks Fall Blend Packaged Coffee. Both are wonderful but of course my favorite is and has been the Pumpkin Spice Latte which inspired me to get crafty and make a set of felt pumpkin spice paperclip bookmarks! Perfect for marking your favorite designs in a pattern book or magazine or saving the spot in your current read.
Conveniently the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte now comes in a VIA instant packet! Making it easier than ever to brew! Just empty the packet into a mug and add 8 ounces of hot water. So simple, so delicious! Plus the aroma is heavenly! Make it at home and take it on the go with the new Fall Design Starbucks Tumbler (picture above)! Such a sleek, modern design with the perfect autumn color palette.
Fall is also the season to get back into routines and with my new Wall Caddy Organizer, I can keep notes about my blogging schedule and store my favorite crochet magazines and pattern print-outs. Plus it even has a spot for my crochet hooks, craft accessories AND a small magnet board that I can clip the latest craft store coupons to.
If you want to make the Felt Pumpkin Spice Paperclip Bookmarks for yourself, I am providing the template below! I used the template as a guide to cut the shapes out of felt. You will need two of each pieces (but only one whipped cream and pumpkin stem). I used 2-ply yarn (separated my 4-ply) and a needle to whip stitch the two felt pieces together. Be sure to add a jumbo paperclip and whip stitch around it. Use a hot glue gun to secure loose yarn ends and to glue on the whipped cream and stem.

I hope you are enjoying the Fall season as much as I am!
