Popular Crafts – Union Jack Swap

16 Jun

My Popular Crafts Magazine union jack craft swap has been received today by my partner Sarah, so here’s what was sent and received! You can follow Sarah on Twitter!

Sarah sent me this gift, she has followed me on twitter for a while and knew I liked to craft and bake, so the gift was really thoughtful.

Here's the gift

My idea was to make a crocheted bag and line it with union jack fabric. I had never either made a crocheted bag before or lined a bag, so Sarah was my guinea pig!

Here are some pics of the completed bag and the gift of pretty notelets that I sent with it.

I don't make many cards, but thought this stamp was quite apt.
