As you have been reading in my recent posts, I participated in a Fall / Halloween swap hosted by Pink Stitches
. The other day a lovely parcel arrived from the USA, and these are the gifts that my swap partner Brandi sent to me!
Too funny – you may remember the ‘Spooky Pouch
‘ I made for Brandi, using this tutorial
that I pinned? Brandi saw on Pinterest that I had pinned that tutorial, so she made this pouch for me! Snap! How cute are the whales? She must have seen my love for whales after reading this post
She also sent the cutest crocheted pumpkin pin cushion –
She is really great at crocheting and you can also find a really cute pattern for a kids pumpkin hat on her blog here
. For Halloween, Brandi also sent some candy corn, which is very hard to buy here in Australia. It didn’t last long enough to make it into the photos!
Last but not least she sent a gorgeous felt flower which I think I will attach to a headband for Anna, and some lovely fabric from her stash, a pink and green print which is very similar to a fabric I had pinned, and a cute cupcake print.
How lucky am I? You can see some more of Brandi’s crafty creations at her blogs, JuBee’s Craft Box and Crafty Girl Squared that she writes with her friend Meig. They also have an etsy shop where they sell some gorgeous stuff.
Thanks so much Brandi, it was really fun swapping and getting some lovely surprises in the mail!
