Package Project Take 2!


My package partner, Bri from New South Wales, received my package a few weeks ago. Ya! That means you get to finally see what I made for her.

Bri's package was broken up into three separate bundles, plus one special gift. I tried my best to send her little goodies based on some of the info she shared with me about herself.

The first bundle contained a package of my favorite teas, a fabric flower brooch with a cute corduroy button, a set of three fabric covered pins, and an owl garland cut out of some of the vintage wallpaper that I snagged from the Creative Reuse Store a while back. Bri is expecting a baby sometime in December and being a lover of owls, she plans on hanging the garland in the baby's room. Ya!

The second part of the package contained one of my lavender deer sachets, a tiny embroidered teacup patch, a set of cloth coasters made from some cute heart fabric, an owl button designed by one of my favorite local illustrators, Caitlin Kuhwald, and a funny sticker from I heart Guts.

Bri is a also big fan of cupcakes, so I decided to include a copy of an amazing chocolate cupcake recipe from Cook's Illustrated in her third package. I also threw in some super cute cupcake decorated ribbon, a swatch of owl fabric, bearded stickers by none other than Imadeyouabeard, and a very pretty postcard.

And here is the item that prevented me from sending out Bri's package on time. I have to admit I was hoping this tea towel would come out a little different but considering that I did the majority of the stitching freehand, I don't think it's too shabby. Bri enjoys cooking and teacups, so I thought this little tea towel might make a pretty addition to her kitchen.

Thanks so much for being my package partner Bri!
