Swap gifts I made

Well I did a swap of homemade items over at Craftaholics Anonymous in December. Since it is well past Christmas I figure I can show you all what I made.
First I made a nice little snowy tassel.
"let it snow"
Then I made a wonderful burlap stocking. I had tons of fun with this and plan on making some for us next year. I put muslin as the cuff and then put a nice burlap flower with buttons on it and edged it with some fancy trim.

And lastly I made a burlap JINGLE BELLS garland. I tied little rusty bells on the tips.
I will probably make more of these for next year also.

It was great fun making the items but to be honest it was the first swap I have participated in that I heard absolutely nothing from the swap person. I hope she liked it.

Now off to clean up the rest of the Christmas decor then I will be cleaning the house and the craft studio. I noticed I went over my 100th post over the holidays so I need to come up with a giveaway for the new upcoming year..hmmm what to do?


  1. Those were beautiful. I love your banner as well!

  2. I would have been giddy to have gotten that stuff! Wow... I love it all. You are talented, and so creative. (sorry your swap partner hasn't gotten back to you).

    I've never participated in a swap. If I build up the courage, I'm going to give it a whirl this year.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

  3. those are great, I really love the burlap stocking

  4. OH MY GOSH I would have gone crazy! Every bit of that is absolutely fantastic!!!!

  5. Nice swap gifts. I also like your new pans that your Mom gave to you for Christmas. I love to bake an cook and I actually bought pans for my husband for Christmas and hopefully he will learn to cook more then an egg:)

  6. Your swap items are beautiful. How unfortunate that you didn't hear anything from the lucky recipient of your handmade goodies! I would be over the moon. Wishing you all the best as the New Year begins. Blessings, Tammy
