The most recent SWAP between artisans on The Chocolate Crow Trader has just taken place and SWAP items have been posted and received.
The SWAP this time was a "Tag and a Box Swap". Artisans were required to make or buy a tag and a box and fill it with whatever they desired for their swap partners.
Here is a look at the "fabby" stash of great "grubbies" I received from my SWAP partner and good friend Suzie, from Enchanted Things...
and here is where I popped the sweet little teddy
Here is a little look at the SWAP item I made for my SWAP partner, Jackie from The Back Shed, also a very dear friend.
I covered the box with fabric, which I aged and distressed and rubbed with lots of yummy spices. I then took an oversized luggage tag and painted and distressed it, adding a piece that I needlefelted and backstitched with Jackie's name....tying it to the box with thick jute.
I knew that Jackie was keen to have a go at some needlefelting so I filled the box with hand-dyed wool roving & woolfelt from the States, together with some needlefelting needles, a template and a handmade little prairie doll I made using a Primitive Pear design.
Another successful SWAP ...if I do say so myself!!!
Pop in and see the "Swapping Crows" page on TCCT. I will be adding some of the other SWAP piccies to it later this evening.....some very nice goodies to be seen!
