Covert Robin Gifts for Jill

A couple of weeks ago I guest posted for Jill from Made with Moxie to share the Covert Robin gifts I made for her. In case you missed it, here they are!

This swap was a tricky one – I couldn’t make a final decision on what to make for Jill and I kept stressing that it wouldn’t be good enough! I am a bit too hard on myself!  In the end I settled on three things:

First, I made a denim tote. I used some dark denim and top stitched it in hot pink and finished it with a heart shaped black button. Inside it is lined with a fun cherry print.

When I participate in swaps I like to stalk check out my recipient’s blog and Pinterest boards to see what their style is. Jill’s blog logo kept popping into my mind (see it HERE), so I used some black and white felt and made her a pin of her blog logo. I pinned it to her bag, so when she goes to the grocery store someone might say “what’s that?” and she can say “the logo for my blog / etsy store”…cue conversation and potential customer!

And finally as someone else who loves fabric and sewing, I knew Jill would love a zip pouch made from selvedge. Its a project I started a while ago, and I put it aside for ages waiting for the right reason to finish it. The Covert Robin swap came along so I finished it with Jill in mind.

And the other side:

And what is an international gift without a selection of local delicacies?

Thanks to Australia Post’s terrible slowness, I have not recieved my gift yet, but I know it will be worth the wait! To my Covert Robin if you are reading this, I am really excited to find out who you are and have you guest post about what you made!

I am linking this post to the Covert Robin link party – pay it a visit and see all the amazing handmade gifts the participants made each other!

  1. That salvedged pouch is very cute. I never remember to save my salvedges. I am not sure why as I seem to save everything . I'm sure your swap partner will be delighted.
