I made this for craftydeb in the OW12 swap but thought I'd post it here too.  It's mainly backstitch with a bit of chain, lazy daisy and french knots.

I should have ironed it before taking photos!

Originally discussed here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94716.0

You must make one large item and two-three smaller items.  Make more if you would like to but agree with your partner first to avoid embarrasment & swap anxiety!

All items should be hand made and fit in to one of the R categories: reduce, reuse, recycle and revamp
So reduce could be a reusable grocery bag to avoid using the shops carrier/paper bags.  Or revamp something from a thrift store into a useful item.  The possibilities are endless and I'll post some more ideas soon.
