A while ago, I blogged about my idea for creating an ornament using fabric origami for the Handmade Ornament Swap. Well ... it seemed like a good idea at the time, but I fell out of love with it by the second iteration, then it sort of fell off the radar amongst everything else going on. Fast forward to earlier this week when I was cleaning out drawers and found a fillable bauble I had bought ages ago and my button tin ... this was the result ...
I love this bauble, and if I had enough tiny buttons, I would make myself one immediately! I might have to hit the oppy for more little buttons this week. I really hope my swap partner likes it too (even though it is a bit late)! Perfect for crafty types, and festive too.
This was the festive little parcel waiting for me at the post office a couple of weeks ago from the person chosen to make me an ornament (no-one knew who was making their ornament). I knew from the wrapping that I would love it!
Catherine from A Time to Create blog embroidered this gorgeous snowflake motif in red and white. On natural linen! This is just so perfectly my style ~ thankyou so much Catherine.
Also, a big thanks to Christina for hosting this swap.
