UHG Swap Projects September 13, 2010

Yay, I can finally reveal the projects I made for the Urban Home Goods Swap 😀

My secret swap partner was Kirsten (three dancing magpies) and we actually know each other!

I was at her house a couple of weeks ago and she flat-out asked me who her partner for the swap was, and like a bumbling idiot I made up a really lame story, and kept changing the subject every time she brought it up.

Ha, ha I am a horrible fibber ;p

Knowing my swap partner made it all the more fun and inspiring!

The first goodie I made for her is this (main)/Heather Ross(handle and lining) wristlet.

The pattern is “Wristlets Three Ways” from Oh Fransson.

Then I cut into my beloved Nani Iro fabric to make the “Lis iPhone Holder” from flossieteacakes HERE.

I cross stitched a fancy “O” on it just in case somebody else had one JUST like it, ha ha.

And here is the back side…it even has a little credit card slot.

I have got to make up one of these for me!

And last, but CERTAINLY not least…this fabulous “Lickity Split” tablerunner!

All of the lovely fabrics in the blocks were selected by Tasha (a little sweetness) and the really cute ones can be ordered in her lovely little Etsy shop HERE ~ thanks Tasha!

The pattern is from Rachel Griffith’s (p.s. i quilt) Etsy shop HERE.

It was super snappy to piece together…but the quilting and binding took quite a while.

I barely got this in the mail by the swap deadline (literally finished it at 2pm that day!)

Phew!

Now to start planning for my next two swaps…

Happy Monday,

Colette
