first i have to say how awesome writer78's package was, it was like she was a close friend who knew exactly what to get me! i used the makeup bag on my trip this past week to comic-con and i was worried that the tsa might like it and take it since they went through my luggage. but it made it back safely. it is the purrfect size. the domokun keychain was a huge surprise and the beatles embroidered magnets still amaze me. thanks writer78! anyone who gets to swap with her will be SO lucky.
now on to the stuff i sent her. i admitt i agonized over her stuff because i was worried that i would get it all wrong (this is my first swap too), but i am so HAPPY that she LOVED the stuff . . . i'm glad that i agonized
the pouch is reversable and has a drawstring with grommets and a belt loop.
for the contents i made her a crocheted coin purse (also drawstring) with some coins from the UK, i made barrettes from some buttons that had a renaissance-ish design, i put a button on some felt to make a pin, and i embroidered her initials on a handkerchief.
i thought a wax seal would be cool but they are pricey so i got her a stamp with her initial on it and a stamp pad. finally i made her a travel embroidery kit.
the embroidery kit rolls up to be compact. inside it can hold several skiens of floss, it has a pocket for scissors/notions, and it has a spot for needles.
sorry for the image heavy post. its hard to see everything in one photo. this swap was a blast!
