Today I assembled my Secret Santa parcels for the swap being held in the Bee a Brit Stingy bee. Thankfully I'd had the forethought to make the fabric baskets already. I had planned on making some other bits for inside, but that's fallen by the wayside thanks to my health. However, I still had scraps and other bits to assemble.
No you aren't seeing double. One is for my partner and one is a secret.
The swap requested we made a fabric basket as per this tutorial and then put some scraps inside. That was the minimum. We could put other stuff in to. But had to remember we are called Be a Brit Stingy for a reason.
Two scrap piles for the bottom of each basket.
I don't tend to have big scraps of fabric and a lot of my scraps are odd shapes too. But I figured if I sent a selection my partner would have something they could use out of the whole lot.
By the time it came to wrapping the bits for in the basket I was feeling a bit wobbly so it looks like I delegated that and writing the cards to a small child. I was further foiled when I ran out of parcel tape. So the parcels have ended up a bit pass-the-parcel in the hope everything arrives in one piece.
Posting day is tomorrow although I will be late posting. Hopefully my partner won't mind the wait too much.
I hope you've all had good weekends and aren't finding the Christmas preparations too stressful.
