Little and Large Craft Swap

Filed under: Uncategorized — spottedblacksheep @ 7:32 pm

Recently, the Teenager and I took part in our first ever craft swap as organised by the wonderful Blottedcopybook.

This one was a Little and Large craft swap with us being paired with Marina and her son James. Parents had to help their kids make something for the other kids, and then make something for the kids themselves. Also, most importantly, include a treat for mum!

So, we set about planning our makes, then realised we were running out of time! But we made it and posted our parcel off in time.

What we sent was this:

The Teenager made a little drawstring bag from lovely Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric we had and I made a tidy with felt vehicles sewn on.

We were really excited when our parcel arrived!

Here is what we received:

A lovely treasure chest painted by James, a crochet bracelt and bookmark made by Marina and lots of yummy sweets!

For mum, a smelly candle for “me” time!!

We really enjoyed taking part, definately know that the Teenager is better at sewing than me! Re-learned lots of sewing machine techniques and had a few testing moments with it but really enjoyed it! And we’ll definately do something like this again!
