Recent Swap Items
I was recently in a craft swap hosted by Kelci at http://craftymamacreations.blogspot.com . Each one of us in the swap was paired up w/ a partner and asked to create approx. a $40 gift for a partner. Since my partner loved the colors aqua, green, and brown and wanted to decorate her place a bit, I chose this Amy Butler pattern. I made a set of magnet clips, a matching set of ceramic coasters and a 6x6 trivet, as well as an altered frame using this pattern and aqua paint. The frame came out a bit more distressed than I had hoped, but it still looks cute. I had really hoped to be able to sew a few little things but I didn't have the time to really sit down and figure out my sewing machine before the end of the swap.
