swapping around….

So, it is that time of year again where I participate in the Savvy {Seasons} Swap, an off-shoot of the Urban Home Goods Swap.  This is my third time swapping, and these swaps are by far my favorite!  One of the reasons I like them so much is that I get to adventure into something I haven’t tried before.

Last year, I made these goodies for my partner, Kristen over at Three Dancing Magpies.

Savvy Seasons - All the loot

And, I tried out fabric snow flakes.  They were quite an adventure.

I just finished up this year’s swap goodies for my partner, so I thought I would share a little of what I did.

The whole sha-bang!

These were all the goodies I sent.

Cup Warmer

I made a reusable cup warmer because my partner said she loved coffee.

Coordinating Napkins

Then, I made some fabric napkins in different, but coordinating, fabrics.

My favorite part was the napkin rings I made with pvc pipe and washi tape. I am having lots of fun with pvc this year!

Folded Star

And, the big gift was the folded star wall hanging.

I had made a folded star before, but it was a really long time ago.  And, this one gave me a run for my money.  Just getting it into the embroidery ring was really hard because of all the layers of fabric.  I followed the tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop.  The directions were really easy to follow.  I just didn’t follow them all, which meant I needed to frame the star in a porthole in order to cover some goofs.

I am really happy with how everything turned out!  Hope my partner likes everything.
