I recently had a request from a new dear friend for a goodie package of supplies. She has plans to make her own Pick-a-Lily Pincushion doll and was especially fond of the prints I used to make Lily Maida in my tutorial. (I've got it posted by steps down along the sidebar if your interested in taking a peek at her!) Since I had just enough of what was needed I told her "Sure thing," and got to work!
Now I suppose it all could have been folded into a neat little pile, sealed in a baggie, and sent on it's way but I figured what fun was that? I had a hankering to arrange something and since the garden flowers are quite out of season I had a go at arranging the supplies instead and guess what?
I LOVED IT!
My favorite part was coming up with a way to package the little seed beads. With only six in the lot they were sure to get lost if not contained in some way. In the end it only took a needle, some thread, and a few quick stitches to make them travel ready.
I'm hoping she's as pleased with the results as I was. The only problem was it left me wishing I had a package of crafty goodies coming my way as well.
