Colour Swap - here's what I sent.....

I received a lovely email from Lorraine over at FairlyGirly to say that she had received my colour swap gifts so I thought I would just show you what I sent her...
Now Lorraine chose green for her colour but having read through her blog I found out that she also loves purple so I combined the two colours and this is what I came up with...
The bag is made from a fabulous piece of curtain weight fabric that I picked up in a remnant box and it is lined with green and white polka dots cotton fabric.
This is my first attempt at a coaster and I was really pleased with how it turned out.
Purple on one side
Green on the other so Lorraine can choose to suit her mood...
I painted a little heart box with green paint and added a frog button and filled it with green flower and leaf beads which Lorraine is hoping to make into a bag charm for her new bag.
I made this brooch using the same purple and green fabric as the coaster and I couldn't belive my luck when I found this handmade button in the button box in the local charity shopAnd finally some Crabtree & Evelyn body wash and a green butterfly bath bomb.
I've really enjoyed taking part in these two swaps as I love making things specifically for people and have already joined another one.......
