What would a craft party be without a goody bag!
Sheridan got together an amazing list of sponsors and they provided us with all sorts of great things in a bag made from corn - by Inner Green - how cool is that.
A full list of 'clickable' links is at the bottom of this post.
There were a bunch of great patterns some for quilts, pencil rolls and one that Clare wrote especialy for us, a cute puppet.
And then there was fabric from Retromummy, Hawthorne Threads and Saffron Craig and a very cute key fob from Earth Girl Fabrics.
|Patterns, fabric, key fob and more patterns - bliss!|
I also made the most of the market stalls and got some very sweet Sweetie Petite dolls from The Red Thread.
The swap, arranged by Cass was awesome again.
I forgot to take a pic of the flex frame felt iPhone pouches I made - so I might have to make one more so I can show you! Inside I put a Kitkat which had a print out of an iPhone on the front of it - just for fun.
Here's what I got from some very clever ladies:
Fabric patched notepad and pencils from Cass - mine has Heather Ross on it - *swoon*
A casserole carrier from Donna - serious amount of work in each one of these - wow!
My very own doll quilt by Helen - her work is amazing.
One of Sara's gorgeous embroidered cuffs - I had to fight my daughters to keep this.
And a fabulous calico appliqed bag with lovely fabric 'scraps' inside from Anna.
Yep - lucky me!
Also I never showed you the very clever badge that Cass made for me - she put a zip in it!! (She said that it was thanks to Cam who helped her with the technical side of it).
Not only did it look great but it was very practical - the perfect place to keep my room key for the YHA we stayed at. Thanks Cass.
I also bought a special treat for myself - a new Polly Pratt dress! Made from gorgeous Amy Butler fabric - here it is on a model with a better figure than mine!
It's such a gorgeous summery, fun dress - makes me feel very girly - and my girls adore it - I was truly in the door for about 10 seconds when one of them declared "I love your new dress mummy!"
