Paper Bag Swap

Hello,

I can now share what I made for Colleen in the Snickerdoodle Dreams Paper Bag Swap.

I made Colleen a Mug Bag . A Needle Wallet and Pincushion and matching Lanyard. Plus some button tags.

This shows the inside of the Needle Wallet . The wallet and pincushion are one of Joy's patterns. I added some red buttons to co-ordinate them altogether. I covered a lanyard I had in my cupboard, I kept the webbing on the lanyard and used a strip of material about 2.5inches wide to cover it.

Colleen provided lots of ribbons and these lovely paper flowers so I decided to raid the button jar and make some lovely tags with tags I had on hand.

Enjoy your goodies Colleen and looking forward to seeing what I receive.

Happy days.
Bev C

Gorgeous accessories Bev - I love the red buttons, what a nice finishing touch. That lanyard is a great idea, saves losing the scissors down the side of the couch I imagine. lol
