Much thinking later... and some experimenting and one or two epic failures... and this is what I came up with.
The completed charms for the swap. I decided to make a "Compact Compound Collection" aka a portable witches brew kit - things I think the witch on the fly would be likely to use on the go.
The brew kit comes with an instruction manual detailing what is included in the kit. It hangs from a handy Swivel Clasp from Tim Holtz, designed to hang from the keys to your witch's broom.
The front cover and inside pages of the instruction kit.
Eye of newt - hand stitched felt eye ball, with button iris.
Back of the eye ball showing the hand stitches veins. (I loved the way these ended up looking!!)
Moonbeams - seashell crescent drop.
Shrunken Pumpkin - fuzzy ball with stitching to create the creases of the pumpkin skin.
Drop and a half of bat blood - stacked beads
Evil Goblin Tear Drop - stacked seed beads with a tear drop bead.
Vial of Fairy Dust - recycled mini bottle filled with mixed glitter. Chain wrapped around neck of bottle and a vial label (so you know what is inside).
