Mug Swap..I sent these.....

I heard yesterday that my swap partner has received her swap parcel so I can now reveal all. First of all I recycled the cardboard box that was sent to me.First of all I found a cute miniature/small Chocolate cookbook with some mouth watering pictures plus some coffee and yummy Thornton's Chocs.Then of course a mug to drink the coffee in. Now blogger has put this picture wrong. I have tried twice to put it the right way. The flowers look like they have been appliqued on.
Sharon likes blues and greens, so some lovely fabric in those shades. The top one is a screen print ( not by me) or a copy of a screen print and I think is very unusual.

Then some pretties, card flowers, lots of ribbons and a glitzy bow. I thought that perhaps these could be used in a range of things.


Some buttons, I was surprised at how few blue and green buttons I had.



So I used some Cath Kidston fabric to make some cover button, and they have got a bit of green on them.

I put in one of my handmade keyrings and some extra nice tissues.

The best I have left for last. I made one of my felt book covers using S for Sharon. I used lots of hand embroidery, some craft buttons and little flower embellishments. I really enjoyed making this and I have decided to do some more covers like this. Certainly another example but the initial will be to order otherwise I could be swamped with them!

Then I wrapped them all up pretty, blue but no green I'm afraid.

I really enjoyed this swap, as I have every swap. I have another Creative Swap challenge to do next which I due in America by the end of April which will come around soon enough!Take care and thanks for visiting.
