My one on one swap with Shez…..

All these parcels travelled with me to our Mill Rosie meet up

One brown bag contained my one on one swap gift for Shez, I think she liked what I made her Smile

Here is a close up picture of what Shez made for me, a gorgeous red & white draw string bag, hiding inside the bag was 2 pretty fat 1/4’s, red & white DMC threads and a sewing whatnot which folds up for easy carrying. I’m feeling very spoilt today…..Thank you Shez, I love our one on one swaps Smile

This is what I made for Shez, a red & white bag filled with wool & crochet hooks as Shez would like me to teach her how to crochet next time we meet up Smile

Do you want to hear a funny story??? You do, good! See this mini wall hanging above well it was going to be the centre panel for Shez’s crochet bag but when it came time to make it into a bag it kept telling me very loudly that it wanted to be a hanging not a bag and who am I to argue with creativity so this became a hanging but I still wanted to make a bag for Shez so I had to get my skates on the week before our meet up to re-trace the design, stitch it up and then make up her crochet bag LOL the things you do for special friends Smile

You two have the most amazing swaps. And you always come up with the most beautiful gifts. I would have happily snuck home with any of them. They were just gorgeous.

Love your handmade bag! And filled with all-you-need-to-crochet kit sounds like a fab swap pressie.
Glad you listened to your mini's stitchery, though it could have told you sooner, lol
