Faith, Hope and Charity Swap continued.....

Here's what I sent to Verity in the Faith, Hope and Charity Swap organised by Lakota at Faith, Hope and Charity Shopping.
 I found a tutorial for a quilted "friendship" bag which I adapted to add the wooden handles and machine embroidered the seams. I haven't done much quilting before and really enjoyed making this bag.

 I added a yo-yo button brooch which can be left on the bag or worn on a coat. These yo-yo's are quick and easy to make and very addictive.
I found another idea on the internet to turn some plain brown wooden beads into a bright bold bracelet.
This necklace is one of my Pinterest pins and was great to make - I don't often rip fabric but you had to for this beauty. Very theraputic!

I added another sewn on yo-yo to the necklace to tie all the strands together.
I really like this necklace and think I shall have to make myself one very soon...

Finally some Country Living Smellies.
I loved trying out these new ideas thats what I love about swapping as it makes me try lots of new crafty goodness.
