11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Sweet & Simple Sachet Swap Gallery on: February 05, 2015 02:58:12 AM
My amazing parcel on a day when I needed a pick up:

First of all, I got the most incredible sachet. I love mathematics, it resides in a place of my soul and never ever goes away. My mathematical sachet has both the fibonacci curves and Pi on either side.



And not only is it really beautiful (and I don't want to put it in a drawer, cos then I'd never get to see it) but also it is fruitily scented especially for my rubbish nose. I got a scented sachet that I can smell Shocked (you have no idea how exciting and unusual that is) Grin Grin Grin.

I also got some very thoughtful extras, some gorgeous tea (I love tea) in one of my favourite flavours and some hot chocolate (there should have been 4 in the picture but I used one at work last night).



p.s. If you're wondering about the basket in the background, this swap has inspired me to prune my rosemary bush outside and bring the branches in for drying. Wink

Woo Hoo!

3 bags of stuff went to the charity shop today, mostly clothes, that had been stashed to use the fabric. I picked out most of the stuff that was still wearable and sent it to where it can be used in it's original state for a bit longer.

This still leaves the vast majority of my fabric stash, but hey: it's a start.

What gorgeous sachets: beautifully simple and yet gorgeous.

Dharma_rebel, I love your outlining of the wee bird and Mistress Jennie, your buttons are perfectly place-I take such delight in the dandelion ones!

I am working at it. I have just destashed almost a whole skein of wool (gee whizz!). My neighbour was asking round to find where she could get some mittens on a string for her baby. I had the requisite colour in my stash, so cue a search for patterns.

Now baby has new mittens Smiley

No pictures, just before I finished them it started to snow, so I got sewing up and weaving in quickly and took them around straight away.

Oops! I missed out my favourite solution, that I used to use as a teenager: thick heavy black knickers! Wink

Yes, a band around the bottom looks the easiest option.

You cold make it in-line with the rest of the skirt, or you could add it as a ruffle around the bottom.

I suppose that you could use it as a long top and wear it over jeans or leggings or shorts, or even another plain but longer skater skirt. Actually, if you liked this look you could add your skirt extension behind the skater skirt to look a bit like an exposed petticoat.

Adding a band around the waist may be possible, but to add enough in might mean the top of the skirt is now too narrow for the place it will sit on your hips- it's a risk, but it would tidy up the waistline.

Perhaps a lining might stop it riding up, if repeated movement is too exposing, but if it's only a slight movement that causes the problem, then I think you'd be better off with a skirt extension.

Please feel free to ignore all this if you want to.
