Guess who?


I had a massive burst of day time sewing activity the other day and cooked up this concoction for my Sew it Together name tag swap.

I set the small one to work with a pair of pinking shears and a few supermarket catalogues, local magazines and a glue stick (sorry if you sent your wedding photos into the Brisbane News, but you are now cut out and pasted into a mural that is now on our fridge, amongst pictures of sausages, apples and Danish furniture...). Anyway, I digress.

The colour theme for the name tag should be blue and aqua, although I have used these colours more subtly than I imagined I would when I first started thinking of ideas for the badge. The fabric is lovely soft hemp and organic cotton and in between there is a layer of wool felt to give it body.

The recipient has been a recent visitor to my blog in the last few weeks as a matter of fact, so that makes me feel good!

Oh my goodness, that is just beautiful! The suspense of the whole swap is killing me!
I wonder if this one is mine???

It is lovely Caroline! I love how you have included the colour scheme without being dominated by it.

Loving all these sneak peeks and wondering which one is going to turn up in my letterbox. Yours is very cute.

And here's the lucky recipient. LOL I've been wandering around blogs checking out the tag leaving cheeky comments about them being sure to be mine ... and now I visit you and didn't leave a comment! What's with that? Your tag looks so much better IRL ... I can't believe how lucky I am.
