I was paired up with Cate who does not have a blog but she does have a flikr account so I scoured that for ideas. I tried to choose fabric I thought she might like (one of the fabrics I sent started life as a vintage bed sheet ~ very MSE). This is what I sent:
I made a little needle case from an antique purple fabric using the tutorial in the Sew Hip Magazine (not the one I used this is a new one!), Cate makes lots of little hexies so I thought this might be quite apt for her. The tutorial was created by this lovely lady if you have not already seen it pop over she has made some beautiful things. I also made a button bag for Cate from a William Morris style fabric, and added lots of new and vintage buttons inside it.
Hope you liked it Cate x
Look what I received, naughty Cate went mad and sent loads of beautiful bits!
Look at my new stash, so much fab stuff I don't know where to start...
beautiful vintage fabrics...
The sweetest little hexie case for my hexie tin...
Cotton, bows, bells, buttons, badges brooches, trims and birdies... my son was very smitten with the striped birdie so I let him run off with it, he said thanks!
Incredible little handmade envelopes full of little bits of fabric and hexies ready to go!
Amazing, I am so pleased thank you so much Cate.
