I've really enjoyed this swap, and the swap gallery has proven such an inspiration for ideas to try out at home!

Thank you so much to my senders and receivers, and a big cheer to GatorWrangler for organising.  Grin

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Festive Felt Goodness on: November 27, 2012 02:46:39 PM
I recently participated in the Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 3 and my contribution was a felt ornament (my partners have all received so I can safely post here). I've been interested in creating felt ornaments for a while now, and have been scouring pinterest for inspiration so this is what I have been making.

A little group shot of the recent additions to my yuletide tree. As you can see I have been focussing on the folksy.


These were technically my second design, a double-sided star, white with red, and a sparkly green button.


Some simple hearts, in a lovely deep magenta with white and a silk bow


My rustic tomte/nisse style gnomes - the same magneta but with a tealy blue base. As with all of them, the ribbon is white rickrack and I've attached mini-bells.


Finally, my first design, what started this all off, the festive felt poinsettia slippers from my swap.


Hope you all enjoy them, comments most welcome
Happy Crafting

Ugh, I was going to post pics yesterday but my computer decided to malfunction, so I have only just posted them now. Happily I received my last gorgeous ornament today, and could include that in the post. Yay! Grin

I picked up not one but two ornaments yesterday, and my last one came in the post today, so I have all mine...yay!

This is the group shot I took yesterday


My awesome Moravian stars from goldfishpollywog, they are so shiny and well packed!


My glittering sequined ball from ale0059 and gorgeous felt heart from bec99


And my (last to arrived) ornament, Scandinavian Tomte from IdlersDesign, which is just the cutest, though my camera takes the most rubbish photos.  Embarrassed


Homerof2 and I added a mini-personal swap, where we sent each other an extra ornament and some goodies. This is the awesome package I received


And here is a close up of the beautiful stars that she sent me.


Thank you all for being my senders, I'm honoured to receive such wonderful ornaments from you all!  Grin When I put up my tree in 16 days, I will take a better group shot!

I also wish we swapped more ornaments now (though five at the time was pretty daunting for my first sweat shoppe), as I am green-eyed about all the ornaments that I didn't receive...

I received from Homerof2 and bec99, they are so beautiful. I also have a parcel awaiting collection which I'll do tomorrow, fingers crossed its another ornament! I'll post pics shortly, thank you so much! Grin

Crochet some heads and have stand up versions!

On another note, I sent the last pair of slippers today. Yay!  Cheesy

Sorry I've been a little quiet, I've been distracted by other projects, even though I have been quietly crafting for this as well. I'm ready to turn green and just awaiting one more address...then I'm good to go. Which is just as well, as I will be going up to Edinburgh for a long weekend this weekend.

I hope that Sandy has not interrupted too many lives  Sad  and everyone is have a safe and happy hallowe'en  Wink.
