Recently I participated in the Scrap Bag Swap organised and hosted by Nin from The Wardrobe. My partner was a lady named Kerrie from Napier, New Zealand (fun – love an international swap!) The swap requirements were that –
1. You send some scraps from your stash, and
2. You make a bag to put them in
Great idea! A gift with some fabulous wrapping.
To stay true to the scrap theme, I grabbed my scraps and made my swap bag using those. You may remember the work in progress from this post.
Here is the finished product:
And the other side:
I lined it with a multi coloured polka dot, to coordinate with all the varied colours on the outside. I filled it up with scraps from my stash – I hope Kerrie can use them! They were a real mixed bag – some Amy B, some kids prints, some florals, and some vintage bits and pieces. I also popped in a bag of buttons from my huge stash, as Kerrie makes softies and buttons always come in handy for eyes and noses.
Next post I look forward to sharing the lovely vintage themed scrap bag gift I received from Anissa!
