I keep looking at all the lovely things I received from Gemma in the colour swap. They are so lovely. Now I know that Gemma has received my parcel I can show you the 'pink' things I made and sent her....
A little birdy sewing kit
Some mini bunting. I have never made it like this before. I used pink cord rather than ribbon and also threaded a button inbetween each flag. I had lots of remnants of pink fabric so it was good to use them up
A vintage tea cup pin cushion. I have to admit to 'borrowing' this idea from All that Glitters. I bought one of her tea cup pin cushions for my mums birthday and had been dying to try and make one for someone. When I saw this cup and saucer in the local charity shop it was just perfect for the swap,
I also covered a notebook with this gorgeous fabric which is one of my favourites. This is only the second one I have made and I actually found it harder than I thought. I think I need to practice a bit!
This little drawstring bag is from Gisella Graham. The colours were so pretty that it was perfect for Gemma. I was quite tempted to keep it for myself though!
I also sent a few bits and bobs. A spotty luggage tag, a little hanging garland, some spotty ribbon and little flowery pegs
It was so much fun choosing for Gemma because her blog is full of lovely pretty things and it was easy to get a sense of what she liked. Its pretty nerve wracking sending things you have made to a fellow sewer though. I hope she didn't look too closely at my sewing!
