This was my first swap I signed up for, and I learned a lot. Lesson one: give your partner a good idea of a color palette you like. Not one color. One color says nothing. If I told you I loved yellow, that wouldn't really be enough, would it? If I told you I loved Pam Kitty Morning fabrics, you'd have a much better idea of the kind of yellow I love.
My partner likes navy. That's all I got. So this is what I made:
Usually, you fill it up with fun little trinkets and treats. Treats, especially, from what I gather. But my swap partner is dieting, so candy is out. So she gets two pouches instead of one, to make up for the missing treats.
I wanted some cute zipper pulls, and I discovered that my partner has a vintage Singer, so I added these to the bags. Aren't they the cutest? I get them from this little shop on Etsy called Julep Tulip. I've ordered quite a few from her lately, and they are the best!
One pouch has a few extras: a mini charm pack, some notecards, and a box of pins. Oh, and some of the other fabrics that came with the ones I ordered. Just to play with.
So, what do you think? Is this mail you'd like to receive? And are you a swap addict? Confession time: I'm signed up for 8 more this year. So far. One of which is a Harry Potter Mini, and an 80s/90s swap that is going to be so much fun.
Checking this off my 2QFAL list. One down, a billion to go!
