Santa Sack Swap 2015

I joined a couple of swaps this year and this was the last one. This is a Santa Sack Swap that Cheryll hosts every year. This was my second year participating and it has been fun sewing for my partner Sherry and also receiving this beautiful package.

As you can see below the gifts were amazing! For this swap we were to make either a sack, bag or stocking. Sherry and I decided we would make sewing machine covers for each other's sewing machine instead. I love the print she used for my cover. It's sew much fun!


The crochet doily is so delicate, it makes me want to incorporate it into the front of some kind of accessory just so I can use it all the time. 


The scissors and holder is gorgeous! The doily accent gives it a beautiful vintage look accompanied by a matching ring pincushion.


I love the take on the pincushion below. It's place inside a mini frame, so cute with the tape measure fabric. The pretty box contains a set of pretty cork board coasters.


Last but not least is this Debbie Mum mug and coaster set and the 2016-2017 pocket calendar and table mat. This has been such a fun swap and nice to make some handmade gifts for giving.
