The Ornaments I Made for Our Swap

EDIT: oopsy, my previous title indicated a giveaway, but this isn’t a giveaway post – sorry to mislead anyone! I just forgot to change the title of my post before publishing it – doh!

I hope everyone has sent and received their ornament swaps.

I also hope everyone has added pictures of your goodies to our Flickr group. Stop by to check out all the goodies that were exchanged this summer!

I finally remembered to share with you what I made for my partner: a knitted mini sweater, a fabric dove and a felt star.

I included a couple fat quarters in her package as a bonus.

While I was at it, I made a few extra bird ornaments to have on hand for future gifts or exchanges.

I used this simple and quick tutorial from The Purl Bee to make the birds, and I used the pattern from this book to make the knitted sweater. I think they always have the best projects and tutorials!

Today is my first day of class for computer graphics, so I’m excited to start learning how to use Photoshop and Illustrator!

Partners for Ornament Swap in July

I sent out everyone’s partner information for the Ornament Swap in July, so let me know if you have not received that email from me. I am happy to report that we have 21 swappers participating in this exchange!

  • Here is the link to a new Flickr group for us to share photos of our projects. I added a couple pictures of handmade ornaments from my stash.
  • This link will take you to a post with more pictures and suggestions.

Just a reminder that the deadline to mail your package is July 31, so you have a few weeks to create and craft. Have fun with your projects!
