Last year I put a call out on my blog for anyone who like to be a part of my pay it forward. I had until 30th April 2013 to complete and post my items but I decided to take advantage of my weeks before Imogen was born and get crafting. I finished all my items but then they sat in my sewing room for a few weeks until I managed get out and buy some extras to send along with them. I am glad though because I got to send them out just in time for Christmas. My three girls that I was posting to were Marie, Peta and Megan. I decided to make them each something different to match their interests.
Marie, I am sure you all know, is a crafting all rounder so I chose to make her gift targeted towards her recent adventures in knitting. I made her a project bag so that she can take her knitting projects on the go with her. I also popped in some point protectors and a needle gauge. I forgot to take a picture of it but the bag had a really cool pink lining. I really enjoyed making this bag and I may have to make a few for myself!
Peta loves fashion and has a lot of vintage influences in her wardrobe so I made her a vintage style bow knot scarf. I also bought her some matching tights and some flower earrings. I have had this scarf in my ravelry queue for so long I am glad I got a chance to finally make it.
Megan is a sewer through and through so I made her a pin cushion in two of the colours she listed as her favourites (purple & green). I also popped in some heart buttons and a vintage thread tin. I love pin cushions. I don't think a sewer can have too many pin cushions.
Thank you to the girls for taking part in my pay it forward. I had so much fun doing it. It is a lot of fun to make gifts for my blog readers that are tailored to their interests. I think I might have to do a giveaway along these lines soon. Keep an eye out for that soon.
