But being the bad swap partner that I am...I didn't actually getting round to giving Julie hers until today! I'll let you see what I received first, then show you what I gave to Julie.
It's great getting a swap package, and I love having a good look at everything inside. Here are some particular favourites that I got in mine -
|Some ribbons - of course ribbons would make me happy :)|
|A gorgeous red, cream and brown flowery print|
|Some funky lime green with white dots (already used a bit in Joshua's personalised t-shirt) and a bright pink flowery print|
|A sweet little cross-stitch bee! How cute is this??|
I was in the mood for making something this morning (does everyone get like this some days??) so I decided to make a quick little drawstring bag to put the scraps in that I had for Julie - this is what I came up with -
This is just a basic, unlined drawstring bag and it took no time at all to make. The fabric was part of the free gift with issue 2 of 'Homestyle Sewing' magazine, I just sewed on some pink gingham ribbon to cover the 'join' of the flowery and gingham fabrics and used some pink ribbon as the string in the top casing of the bag.
