I had a busy month of swaps in January! I had fun doing them all!
Be My Valentine, Stitch and Bitch Embroidery Group (make 1 finished valentine theme stitch project)
I sewed her a shopping tote (pattern from a new bag book I got) and used the heart pattern from Badbirds. I received a cute heart wall hanging from my partner.
Fake Fabric Food. I made a T-bone steak for my 2 partners. I received fish n chips and a valentine cookie from my 2 partners.
Various heart ornament swaps
Crafting Queens group:
What Does Your Heart Say?
These 2 heart patterns from Orange Flower sketchbook but I don’t see it on her site anymore.
Handmade Heavenlies group:
Made using my sizzix!
Japanese Magazine/book Inspiration swap in the Zakka group. My partner likes eyeballs with wings.
Hand Carved Swap. My partner likes the Japanese characters Monokuro boo
One of my favorite swaps, Wacky, Silly and Unusual Holidays, February.
February 20 is Love Your Pet day (pattern from the long thread)
A heart brooch for Valentine’s day. The other 2 holidays I chose were the 7th, send a card to a friend day and the 23rd International Dog Biscuit day (I printed out some homemade biscuit recipes and included a cookie cutter)
Crocheted a heart bookmark (Crochet Spot) to include as an extra in one of the packages.
From the stitch and bitch embroidery group, Weekender Embroidered dish towel. The Love pattern is from Floss Box, the cupcakes from Lolly chops and the heart from an embroidery pattern book. (Notice that pink gingham yet again? It’s one of Sienna’s old receiving blankets I’m reusing!)
An extra to include, a crocheted flower brooch (I used a thicker cotton yarn). Pattern from goodknits.
Handmade Harajuku swap in the Harajuku girls group. Make 3 handmade items!
My partner likes Miffy. Pattern from This and That.
Pucca keychains made using Tim Holtz’s fragment charms. I was delighted there was an official Pucca website with images to use!
Hello Kitty magnets printed on magnet paper and topped with Diamond Glaze. I didn’t like how the diamond glaze came out soÂ printed out some more without putting the glaze on.
And last but not least! Sweet Treats in the Crochet Cuties and Amigurumis group!
A chocolate cake from my Tasty Crochet book. It came out pretty big!!
