(Not So) Secret Santa -Part 3

So as I mentioned, Friday night was a swap night. Each person was assigned a person to make, bake or op-shop a gift for. The gift was to cost no more than $10. Nobody knew who was making their gift, and there were spot prizes for those who could guess who had provided their gift.

As such, it was up to each individual to decide whether to make it an easy guess for their recipient or make something completely out of character just to confuse.

In the end, I thought I was making it fairly easy for my swap partner and made something with a couple of clues as to the maker.

I made a gift for Kirsty. Here is what I came up with:

It's a jewellery roll, complete with two zip pockets (trusty green op-shop zips of course to keep costs down); a ring holder and two other small pockets. Inside one of the pockets was a covered button brooch and a beaded bracelet (sorry forgot to take photos of them!)

I must admit to being pretty chuffed that Kirsty guessed that Nin made it... My sewing can't have been that bad!

Curious what other people received and gave?- Go here and here and here and here.

Thanks to all the Christchurch bloggers who came along and made it into such a great evening (and those who were there in spirit if not in body- we missed you Widge!).
