Makin it Monday- Gift Exchange

Last month I participated in a homemade gift exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous

I participated in Linda's United States and International exchanges. So I got to make TWO gifts!!

My US partner was Susan. I made her a little zipper clutch. I used Noodleheads gathered clutch tutorial.

I used some fabric that my Grandmother had given me for the main piece. I didn't have much,but just enough for this project! I love how it turned out with the red strip across the front.

Susan has a little girl and I wanted to include her in our exchange. Since our gifts had to be mailed by the end of June I decided to make her a Patriotic bow. I hope she can wear it again for Memorial Day. I wad also a little naughty and included some candy. Hope Susan didn't mind! I also added a little beaded necklace for her to make!

My International partner was Michelle from Croatia.

I made her a little zipper clutch too. This time out of a pretty floral print. This bag reminds me of spring!

I also sent her an ABC & 123 book. I included my alphabet and number cards in the book.

I hope these ladies and their daughters enjoyed their gifts!!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Well, I do love my little pouch and it will be handy for all the pencils I usually loose in my bag :) BTW, you've sent me red one... so I presume you've sent Susan a green and yellow? ;)

    And girl will start learning English this fall so ABC and 123 book will come very handy! :)
