Craft Swapping

Firstly my gift tag swap organised by the lovely  Mezz makes stuff, I was partnered with Mary from the whimsicalteapot.blogspot.com we shared a love of our favourite festive film*

Make 15 gift tags and post to your partner, I was lucky enough to receive these from Mary,

These crossed seas and ended up in Australia, lucky them!

I used some of my smaller vintage fabric stash with buttons, stamping, old paper and felt to create three sets of five, two large, one small, all on baker twine.

My second swap was with Ladybird Diaries for this I was paired with Mel from Mellie moo crochet and really pleased I was (not just because of the chocolate!)  Her lovely decorations are now hanging on our tree and my letter to Santa is on my mantelpiece, waiting!

In return I sent Mel these!

I really enjoyed making something for a complete strangers, hoping they would love my makes too x
