When I opened up the envelope and saw this little guy, I immediately took him out of the green baggie and put him on my jacket. I love his fabric belly and sequin eyes! And, with him there is also a cute fabric button with similar colours, so I think I'll put that on my jacket, as well.
Suki also added some extra personal touches. There is a vintage six of diamonds from a deck of cards, a vintage postcard and some fancy patterned rectangular stickers. This was such a fun parcel to receive, and Craft it Forward was such an awesome idea. I really enjoyed putting together my five packages for the ladies who commented on my post last month, and I'm happy to report that each and every one of them has received their handmade goodie.
So, that means, I can tell you what I sent!
After I sent out my parcels, I also sent out an email asking that the winning ladies take photos of themselves "using" their handmade surprise. So, in return, I received a few photos of the ladies wearing the toques I made! I have to say, it was really exciting to see them on someone else. I have been making toque after toque after toque and I've been the only one modeling them, so it's neat to see them with a different face and hairstyle poking out. I also really enjoyed bringing joy to a few of my online pals.
Did you participate in Craft it Forward 2013? If not, and you're dying to send out some handmade goodness, let me know! I'd love to do a package swap.
