:: Shipping Smiles ^_^ ::

Today seems to be cooler than Yesterday and that's great news for me, because I hate sewing when It's hot I always get all sweetie eww, I was sewing late at night and I'm almost done with the motorcycle bag, and let me say it's coming along great, Now I'm sewing the inner pockets and the straps and then star cutting the other bag, they're cute big and heavy and my arms hurt a bit for lifting it. I also made a precious pin cushion for the ::: Bag of Treats :: Swap I'm preparing, photos of that one soon ;).

Anyway here is what I'm sending to the :CRAFT Matchbox Swap: the theme for this month is - Fruity Craft Supplies-, as soon as I read the theme title i knew I had to join in because I love fruits.

I love apples and I couldn't pass out the opportunity to decorate the matchbox with juicy colorful apples :), this time I didn't paint the box just cover it with a pattern I printed.

Fabrics, ribbon, trims,beads,buttons,embroidery floss, a strawberry pincushion and other embellishments are in this little pack , I hope my partner likes it. I had lots of fun putting all these items together.

This is another pack I sent to moofin from flickr, this is just a peak because I added more things to the swap.

Today I'm gonna try and finish the motorcycle bag and another small bag I'm doing for a the Bag of treats swap :), I already cut the pieces form one of my favorite Japanese fabrics :), it's going to look so pretty. Well take Care and Enjoy the weather!

You always do the best swaps! I'd love to do a swap with you sometime! A fabric/stationary swap maybe. It'd be so much fun.
