What I made... Colour Swap 2012

My parcel arrived today in Bangkok.
Tanya from Craft Courture  was my swap partner.

One of her favourite colour combo's was aqua blue and red. So this is obviously what I decided to go with.
I decided to make Tanya a 'Sewing Class Kit'. This is something I MUST do for myself! LOL  well you know how it is.. do for others but not yourself... I do that all the time.....

I had so much fun putting this together. I was soo excited when it was all finished. 


In this package was

A Cath Kidston mug with a mug hug ... I came up with the design while I was comtemplating what to stitch on it.... I just loved making this! 

 Nothing like a nice cuppa while sitting in a sewing class... 

A covered notebook, to write notes in class or list down projects  etc.... with of course a yoyo on the front... I LOVE yoyo's

A bag that rolls up into a rose in the foreground... these are very handy little bags to use... 
Something to put a project into after the class is finished (maybe).

A hussif. to hold pins, needles, little scissors .. with polymer clay pins I made... I loved making this too!
The hussif folds in a very interesting way... tucks in under the flaps.. 
This is a pattern I purchased a few years ago. I have made a few of these now.. Quick, Easy and fun to make.


And the mug bag... this fits in the mug, notebook and the hussif.

The stitchery is a designed I dreamed up while deciding what I was going to put on the front... 

and a rimu wood (a New Zealand native tree) bookmark that had a Maori carving on the front.. sorry I didnt take a photo of that...

So ladies that is my parcel safe and sound! I am always so relieved when my parcels arrived safely at there destination.

I have been so thrilled to see all the creations arriving on people's blogs. I will put a collage up of everyone's gifts when they have all arrived.

Thanks for taking part.. it has been such an awesome experience to organise with you wonderful ladies.

Thanks for signing up.

Hugs
