We had a lot of fun planning treats for our Miniswap partners - two little girls - such fun!
Little embroidered fairy dolls on linen. The design was just a little doodle that I did. Princess helped with some of the stitching. The backs of these are two pink cotton prints. I'm especially fond of the wool felt wings.
Hand-dyed playsilks and peg dolls. Princess helped with the dolls, too.
One morning I got all three kiddos stringing beads. It was one of those awesome moments where everyone is happy, quiet, and doing a project. I love those (fleeting) times. If you look closely at the beads you might notice a couple of clay ones and a few fabric ones that Princess and her friend made one day.
The Miniswap is such fun - and such a great idea. It would be fun to do a little miniswap of your own with cousins or friends that live far away. And the Miniswap flickr pool is a great place to get ideas for handmade gifts for kids.
