Paper Bag Swap gifts

Tonight was 'opening night' for our Paper Bag Swap with our Online Group. Helen had to send me 2 FQ's, button, trim and a stitchery (which she sent me the doily instead) and I had to make something for her with those bits. I thought for quite a while as to what to make for her, and after seeing some pics on her blog of herself and her dear Mum, I knew I wanted to incorporate one of the pics into some sort of keepsake for her!


I decided to make her a cushion! I am pretty pleased with how it turned out....... And, notice the doily? I appliqued a heart from one of the fabrics to it and put the heart button in the centre:



I still had a little bit of fabric left, and instead of sending it back, I decided to whip up one of these Thread Bins we were taught to make at the Kerry Swain workshop last year:





Glad you liked it Helen! I was such a joy making you this special pressie xx
