My partner has an "S" for both her first and last initial, so that was an easy choice! The "S" and the scalloped circle behind it were cut from wool felt using my Sizzix machine.
Inside there are two small pockets that close with velcro; they will be perfect for organizing any little parts of a sewing project. Her sewing room colors are brown and turquoise, and I just happened to have all these perfect fabrics on hand--yay!
She mentioned that she might like a sewing jar, so I added a pincushion top to a canning jar, and filled it will color-coordinated sewing goodies.
I love it when I make something new for a swap! For me, that's the best part about craft swaps: going beyond what's familiar and trying something different. This was the first time I made either of these items, but it won't be the last!
The package I sent to my other partner is completely different! I'll show you that one next week.
