So, since I didn't know the types of things that Wendy likes, I just sent her things that I would like to receive in a swap. As I said in the previous post, the swap was to consist of a handmade card, a handmade tag, and some yellow things from your crafting stash. Here is what I sent to Wendy ...
|Some yellow ribbons and trims, wrapped onto tags and tied together with seam binding.|
|Some yellow buttons, a couple of chocolate chicks, and a handmade pin cushion made from vintage chicken feed sack fabric from the 1950's.|
|The card and TWO tags that I made for Wendy. The tags come with envelopes too, so that she can mail them to a friend or family member. There's plenty of room on the back to write a quick note. I love the image, from a vintage greeting card.|
|And a hand crocheted, 100% cotton dish cloth that I crocheted using two strands of yarn, one yellow and one white, and which makes the cloth very thick and heavy and great for tough jobs!|
|Before I packed everything up, I put it all into cellophane envelopes to protect it, then stacked it up and ...|
|... wrapped it all up in yellow tissue paper, wrapped it in yellow seam binding, and slipped a cute hand made tag on top, just under the seam binding.|
What do you think? How would YOU like to get this package in your mail? I know I would, and I really hope that Wendy enjoyed opening the treasures she received. Thanks for visiting today, and blessings!
