Thank you to Cat from Catalina's cottage for organising such a great swap!
This the second swap I have joined in with. Sew Sweet Swap. A zippered pouch (or similar) with filled with yummy treats to be packaged up and sent to your swap partner. I had a sewing lesson with Fiona last month on how to make one, so I had a good start but jeez, the zipper was a bit tricky. Not to mention my swap partner was Cat herself, who has a Black Belt in crafting.........no pressure then?!
But like Cat said, it is all fun, and a great way to get sewing. I made a quilted pouch (with dodgy zipper) and filled it with chocolates. I also added more chocolate (to make up for the zip), material, ribbon, washi tape and a scented heart soap. I love putting together the extras for these swaps.
My package was such a nice surprise. A very sweet pouch filled with sweets and chocolates (eaten before I photographed them) material, Chai Latte syrup, yum and the most beautiful crocheted daisy chain. You can't tell from these photos but part of the zippered pouch has been made with a vintage napkin.
I LOVE a good Chai Latte, now I can make my own.
Prettiest daisy chain I have ever seen..........
Thank you Cat for putting together such a beautiful swap parcel. xo
Happy week to you, I'm off to sort out my zipper technique.............
