My package arrived! Cheesy
I imagined the post offices would be kinda clogged because of the holidays, but I didn't expect it would be that much XD

So here it is!


Schnerby sent me an adorable cuff, along with some really cool extras: a felt pin with a red button, a little felt handsewn pouch, and a postcard featuring graffiti art by Banksy.


Here's the cuff being worn. It encompasses some of my favorite stuff: the colors black and purple, ruffles, ribbons and brocade <3 I love how it looks on my wrist, I'll be wearing it a lot!
It's made in such a way that I can change the ribbon if I want, or, as schnerby suggested, put an elastic instead - but I really like having a ribbon bow on it ^^


The pin is just adorable! I love how thick it is with all these layers of felt, it makes the sewing lines really sink in, especially at the middle.

Thanks for being such a great swap partner, schnerby! And thanks Leslieshappyheart and Susanab for organizing this swap, of course Cheesy

Also, I'd like to say everyone's submissions are great, everything looks so gorgeous! Congratulations to all of you!

Great package from Schnerby! I love the cuff, the colors are wonderful, and I like how it looks on your wrist too, Juliana!  The pin and the pouch are really nice extras.

Oh my, I can hardly catch up with all you receivers!! On Christmas eve, how appropriate  Wink

Okay, here we go:
  • Juliana, the cuff looks wonderful it matches your nail polish perfectly! And a beautiful pin, pouch and postcard... What a great job, Schnerby  Cheesy
  • Then Smmarrt: wow! Love the heart and bird pin! The wing of the bird is cut out, right? Did you fold the rough edges inside, RhymeswOrange? Just curious, you know! Love the colours of the felt used! Beautiful, RhymeswOrange!
  • The upcycled water bottle scrappy cuff bracelet is fantastic! Did you cut a ring of the water bottle and then covered it with fabric? (I always want to know how-to, and I am just curious of course  Wink ) Like to see the other side of the cuff too... And a headband with yo-yo and two pins... I am loving it! Great job, Smmarrt!
  • And last, but not least... OGD, you received some awesome jewellery too! Love the bracelets! And two totally different ones, even though the colours are similar! A matching pouch, two cute pins... Again that little pantyhose face, aww too cute! A lot of extras too... Sharalee you rock!  Cheesy


GREAT JOB ladies!  Grin

Oooh, crafty overload!  Three packages posted almost at once!  I love them all!

RhymeswOrange, I LOVE the felt heart pin and bird (looks like reverse applique for the wing, right?).  Beautiful package!

Smmarrt:  It's all great, but the bracelet is especially eye-catching!  I love the "crafty" stamped word.

Sharalee:  the whole package is wonderful, especially the embroidery on one of the bracelets!  Great work!

Recycled water bottle cuff - yes, I just cut up a bottle. The thinner kind of plastic is easier to cut. And there is felt in the other side - orange for RhymeswOrange. I saw this on "That's Clever" on HGTV?, I think. But found a tute online:

http://www.favecrafts.com/Green-Crafting/Pink-Flower-Water-Bottle-Bracelets

There's an accompanying video on YouTube but I'm sure you can figure it out reading the instructions.

I backed the scrappy part with iron-on interfacing to make the ironing and hemming easier. Next time I will sew on the machine instead of by hand.

Thanks everyone. This swap should have a round 2, in the spring perhaps?
