Another swap I've been involved in recently is the strawberry swap. I did a swap in 2012 with the theme of strawberries, so I had somethings to start off this one with. I.e. strawberry fabric and a pattern for making fabric strawberries.
I used the strawberry fabric to make and needle case and pincushion.
I filled the needle case with needles, pins, buttons I'd put on a card (which had an advert for strawberries on it), vintage lace, some ribbon, a small pair of scissors and some thread.
This was also a secret swap, but we did fill in a questionnaire of what we'd like, my partner said she'd like something useful, which was why I made the needle case and pincushion. One of the other things she mentioned was she'd like something to do with my local area, so I made her this cushion with a vintage New Brighton poster and I've filled it with rose petals.
To finish off the parcel I printed some more strawberry adverts and some lavender filled strawberries.
