Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope you have all had a lovely day – I know we have!
Back at the start of December, I feeling quite pleased with myself due to the fact that my #stitchingsanta parcel was all ready to be sent. In the midst of wrapping, I thought
S**T oh dear! I had forgotten to take photographs of what I had bought and I had already wrapped the majority of everything up. 😦 AND now I’m sat here writing this blog post, I keep forgetting what I had actually bought and don’t have many photos to help me remember, so this blog post is a little bit thrown together! I also decided to schedule this for Christmas Day evening as I didn’t want to spoil any of the surprises!
I do feel that I did really well with the items I bought for the $15. I got everything in one trip, made advantage of the sales/offers and used a 25% off total purchase coupon. Go me!
I managed to get one yard cuts of these 3 cotton fabrics for just under $3 each. The pinky/neutral coloured one on the right may actually be 2 yards because I bought a 1 yard cut & a 2 yard cut…I can’t remember which length I sent in this parcel!
This super cute sewing shopping bag was a bargain at $1.79.
I included a dress pattern which I now can’t seem to find a picture of anywhere online. I chose the pattern because I thought it would be a good dress pattern for using up smaller cuts of fabric as it had a chest panel option, typically for voile/sheer fabrics but I thought it would still be good for cotton too.
Insect buttons were also included that were similar to these ones…I think! I’m sure I also chose a pack of 2 buttons that could have been dragonflies, but again I can’t remember!!! HOW FRUSTRATING!!!
Then I included my handmade gifts – blogged about here; coasters, a bookmark & 2 crayon rolls for the recipient’s children. I also had some cute little Christmas pompom craft kits for children in my stash so I sent those along too. 🙂
I hope I haven’t forgotten about anything else…I shall find out when the blogger’s received post goes up I suppose! I hope she likes everything!
I must say a big thank you to Sewchet too for organising the whole swap! I am loving reading all the posts!
P.s I will post what I received next week when I’m back from our mini holiday- my parcel arrived on Christmas Eve when we were out so it’s waiting to be picked up when the apartment office opens up again. 🙂

I love that little sewing bag – so cute with the tape measure handles!
I loved it too – I put one on my ‘to buy’ list but I actually received one in my #stitchingsanta present! Very good choice I think 😀
I didn’t photography all of mine either, but my sweet recipient has blogged about her package, and she liked it! I love the little bag you sent, and those crayon rolls are so clever. I think you’ll get a kick of your partner’s description of the items you forgot! 😉
I think the excitement just got a bit too much to even think about the photos! I think I’m going to make a grown up crayon roll for my coloring books/crayons 😀
That’s funny and typical of most of us, I suspect, as we were anxious to make the last post! Those fabrics were a real bargain and the tote was a great find. Love the crayon rolls, too, and look forward to seeing the recipient’s blog post about it:)
Thank you! I do love the challenge of finding things for a budget, I love bargain shopping!
