This is what I made gamemom42 for the "one tiny thing" swap.

I made acorn cup with the little pot from an activia really creamy yogurt. They are such nice rounded little pots and I find it really hard to chuck them out.
I covered the pot with a scrap of silk I had been hanging onto for aaages (Hoarder... Me? Never...)
and made the acorn itself from a (new) brown sock, left over from a sock monkey making marathon I did a while back.

The leaves have a bit of free-motion machine embroidery embellishment.
My partner said she needed a needle book after I had started this so I added a wee one between the leaves.

This is so awesome!
Great use of the yogurt container.
The pattern of the silk was PERFECT for the acorn cap- see, its not hoarding when you actually USE the stuff  Grin

Ooh, that's cool.

Also a very creative way to add in the needlebook.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

That's incredibly beautiful. All of the fabrics work so well together, and there's nothing wrong with a little hoarding, is there? You have a very lucky partner!

In the end, only kindness matters.

The needlebook is such a clever addition!  I love beautiful items with hidden practical uses Smiley

Wow, this is absolutely wonderful! I love it. The idea, the materials, the construction, everything. Just grand.
