I am so happy I signed up - it's been a lot of fun! I did my best to blog-stalk my partner and figure out who she was and what she liked. She had no Flickr or Pinterest for me to browse through for inspiration so it was hard at first to decide what to make her so I made her a few things based on the following things: my partner sews amazing things and has a lovely blog, my partner loves bright, happy colours and my partner has a toddler.
I know she doesn't follow my blog so I am happy to finally post about what I sent. It was mailed over a week ago so she should be receiving it soon! Here it is all wrapped up.
I made her a few things. First up - I decided to make her a Portable First Aid Roll so when she is out and about with her toddler she can be prepared for scrapes, cuts and dirt! I filled it with a variety of bandaids, antiseptic wipes and gauze plus a few other things. You can find the tutorial here.
I adore that red and aqua print and love the teal ribbon! Hope she does too! Here it is all rolled up:
I also made her an Oval Box Bag which will come in handy for a sewing mom with a toddler I'm sure! I almost kept this for myself because I LOVE the fabric. This blue leopard print is from Anna Marie Horner's Field Study line and I think it adds a bit of fun to the oval zippy case!
The pattern is from a free tutorial by Aneela Hoey and was a lot of fun to make even though it is more egg-shaped than oval! I added a safety pin charm to the zip for an extra little touch. You can put anything in there - toy cars, crayons, embroidery supplies or use it as a toiletries bag (it's washable!). I wonder what my partner will use it for?
And since I know my partner sews, I also sent her a finger/thumb pin cushion with a few pins in it. I love the one Ruth gave to me (her tutorial here) so I thought that I would share some pin cushion love!
Not sure what I will receive, or when, but I sure am excited!! Be sure to check out what everyone has sent or received over at the link up on Casa Crafty.
