The other day the postman brought me this lovely parcel of goodies from Hanna of Craftykin. I had commented on all her wonderful opp-shop/thrift shop/charity shop finds, and she offered to send me some! I offered to send her some Japanese craft books and odds and ends in return and so a swap was born... Here's what I found when I opened the parcel:
I couldn't believe the number of things that she managed to fit in that parcel! Let's have a closer look...
A tea towel destined for my kitchen, and some great vintage linens calling out to be re-purposed into, well, something. The detail in that embroidery is beautiful.
Some child-orientated goodies - K is loving that little sheep finger puppet...
A set of five little cards made with the coolest vintage flower prints. Hand-made by Hanna maybe??
Some lovely ribbon and lacy edging, plus a tiny pair of scissors. So cute.
And look at this! A little booklet of patterns for soft toys, even older than the dinosaur one I have :-) It's got some great ideas in it, although I must admit that the doll on the front scares me a little... Plus a little purse that definitely was made by Hanna (it has her cool Craftykin label inside) and a little tissue case - I didn't even know that they existed outside of Japan!
