Craftaholics gift exchange

  I can't believe it's been a year since I participated in the last gift exchange. One of the blogs I follow, Craftaholics Anonymous,  hosts a gift exchange twice a year. So far I've only participated in the summer but I'm looking forward to the winter one.

  It's so fun to make something for someone you don't know. The anticipation of your secret elf receiving their package is almost too much to take. And, to make it even better, your secret elf makes a  little something for you as well!

  This year I stayed with tried and true, I may change that up for next time. Gloria's little gift from me contained two dishtowels that I added fabric and rickrack to, they were soooo simple to make and I love the little pop of fabric.

Two little, reversible tote bags Aren't those fabrics incredible? Each tote bag used about a yard of fabric and they are completely washable and reversible.

Finally, I made a collage. I've never made one before but I have recieved one as a gift and thought it would be fun to do. I used a little bit of everything, fabric, paper, bottle caps and buttons.

   I loved making them and got some really nice compliments on them! I think I'm going to put the tote bags in my Etsy shop,
