Wanted to post a few pictures from my first swap!  I made this pin cushion/needlebook combo and tape set for stick for the Easy Peasy Swap.


The set as I sent it, plus some pins.


Detail shot of embroidered circles and ribbon spine.


Each page of alternating fabric has strips for pinning needles.  I filled each page with a different type of needle, leaving room for her own collection as well.


The covered retractable sewing tape has an embroidered star on the button retractor.  I lined the edges with the same ribbon as the spine of the needlebook.

There's a few more pictures and details on my blog, at http://www.theartofmegan.com/easy_peasy_craft_swap_april_2008.

What do you think?

As the recipient of this swap package let me just say that this set is WONDERFUL!  I love how theartofmegan thought to make the cover of the needle book "thick" so it could be used as a pin cushion!  Genius!   Grin

That's probably the coolest thing about getting a swap partner that likes bright colors!  I went with colors she had in her sewing area already, but made green the focal color since that's what she was hoping to start adding. 

I absolutely couldn't pass up the polka dot fat quarter when I found it, I knew she'd dig it.
