My partner Kathy, not a fan of pink, said she liked grey with bright colours especially yellow. Hello, one of my favourite colour combos!
I made her this needle/sewing case using this tutorial.
it's fastened on the back because I wanted to use a button and loop rather than a strap
Here's what it looks like opened up:
Kathy loved it (it even matched the outfit she had on at the meeting when she received it)! Whew! And this is what she made me in return (yes, those sneaky swap mamas had each pair making for each other, without our knowing it!):
Isn't it awesome? And the best part is that it's lined with some gorgeous pink fabric, which I know was a stretch for Kathy. So thoughtful! There are bits of Anna Maria Horner in the centre of those churn dashes! And we both used that Robert Kaufman yarn-dyed black in the projects we made. So funny. I feel so lucky to receive this beautiful dilly bag. Thank you, Kathy, and thanks to Berene, Amy and Lorena for coordinating a fun swap.
It was so fun swapping with you!! (And somehow pink keeps creeping into my stash!) I love my needlebook so much :) xxReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing these two lovely projects. What a great swap!ReplyDelete
These tiny weeny things are lovely, as are the random things from last post. I really like the little case with room for scissors.ReplyDelete
Very nice colour combo. Enjoy your projectsReplyDelete
How cool your guilds did a swap. I know how much the postage from Aust to Canada is, and yours to here is even more ridiculous. The two baby quilts I made for my cousins in Vancouver weighed only 800g but was going to cost $29. My Auntie is going over in early Feb so she's fitting them in her luggage! She said a parcel that size would fit easily in her suitcase.ReplyDelete
