Sweet Pouch Swap

Hello there !
Hope its not raining where you are !
Hit a crochet slump last night and still haven't finished edging the wavy blanket 
but I was determined to finish SOMETHING this week so today .....

Drum roll please !

I finished THIS little cutie.......

CraftLee - Zippered scrappy pouch

Its a zippered scrappy pouch for the Sweet Pouch Swap organised by the lovely Ros over at Sew Delicious.
Click on the picture below to check out the details of the swap.

My 'Pouch' has somehow taken on the dainty dimensions of a full sized Santa sack 
(yes! That's an super-sized AERO bar inside folks!)
I blame my over enthusiasm to include every scrap of fabric I own in this project !
And since my desk is currently heaving under the weight of all THESE felt flowers 
I decided to slap one on my pouch too!

Stuffed full of chocolate goodies I am just waiting for the rain to stop so I can run out and post this little beauty to my swap partner on the other side of the Atlantic. I hope the recipient likes it !

My kids were so funny when I told them about this swap 
(I knew they'd want to help 'test' the sweets!)

My daughter said 'Oh ! What a cute idea that'll be so much fun...'

My son said 'What if someone sends you poisoned sweets?'

& therein lies the difference between raising boys and girls folks!

I know who I'm sending my pouch to but I don't know who'll be sending a pouch to me!
Sometime over the next few weeks I will hopefully receive a sweet pouch from some other crafty person. In  the interest of gastronomic experimentation I'm hoping that it will be full of sweets I've never tried before !

See! my pouch is so big it even has a pocket in it !

When my pouch has been received and I receive mine I will introduce you to my two fellow swappers.

Thanks for visiting !
& do come back soon !

Love Siubhan x x x


  1. What a lovely idea and a great place to keep a stash of chocolate away from the children. Your pouch is lovely, I love the addition of one of your flowers. Lucky swap partner.

    1. It IS a cute idea isn't it ! Its my first swap - looking forward to the postman every day ! S x

  2. Pouring here, but that is good seeing as it has been so dry with threat of bush fires lately, so rain is ok today.

    Wow, I thought you were going to eat all that chocolate until I realised it was a swap! lol.

    It's a great looking project and I'm sure whoever gets it will love it.
