Sewing Swap GoodiesTuesday, June 18, 2013
Howdy peeps! I took part in my first sewing swap organized by Kestrel of Kestrel Makes and I'm here to show off what I got. I was really excited about this swap I mean cuz come on who doesn't like receiving fun surprises in the mail. Sure beats bills! I was paired with the lovely Rose of Strange Notions. She's a UK gal and I thought that it was pretty cool receiving a package that said Royal Mail. Made me feel all fancy and important. I wonder if the mailman thinks I'm royalty now...yeah probably more like a royal pain in the ass cuz I'm always having packages delivered that won't fit my mailbox so he has to get out and hand deliver them....sorry guy I have a slight fabric...shoe...purse...ok shopping obsession!
Rose and I exchanged emails on what our sewing goals/tastes were. I think it's a good thing limits were placed on the amount to spend because I had so much stuff I wanted to send. I found it really challenging to narrow it down. Rose mentioned in her cute little ladybird (I find it so weird saying ladybird because I've only ever known them to be called ladybugs. I like ladybird much better) card that she was going by the keywords bold, fun and floral. I think she touched all bases quite well.
First word - BOLD
100% cotton fabric
Designed by Lucie Summers for Moda Fabrics
Second word - FUN
What's more fun than Robot buttons?
Third word - FLORAL
Provence rose printed ribbon
Thanks so much Rose I love it all! I can't wait to put those robot buttons to use.
