I was paired with Joanne of Sew Little Time, who’s blog I’d been following for a while already.
If you’ve ever taken part in a sewing swap, you’ll know that you have to turn yourself into a blog detective and get into their sewing psyche in order to put together a parcel for your swap partner. So what did my research tell me about Joanne?
- Joanne’s Colour Palette: navy is her staple neutral, blues and reds as accent colours and a hint of nautical here and there.
- Silhouette: gathered waists on skirts and dresses with an A-line flare.
- Practicality: As a self-confessed “busy Mum of one” Joanne likes practical but feminine outfits, she’s fond of the Megan Nielsen’s Kelly skirt pattern in particular.
With all this knowledge I put together a sewing parcel that I hoped Joanne would like but I’ll let her reveal that to you.
What I can reveal is what Joanne sent to me… my little heart was beating with excitement unwrapping it. And I felt like I’d unwrapped three parcels because inside the first layer was some blue and purple floral fabric, a vintage pattern (dress, skirt, jacket and coat – practically a wardrobe full!) and the most amazing 70s style pattern tin.
And inside that tin was some cute and colourful stripey buttons, some Hug Snug rayon seam binding (I’ve heard good things about this stuff but never used it before so it’s nice to get to try something new) and another tin.
And inside that tin was some colourful pins.
Great detective work on my blog Joanne and thank you so much you’ve been a fab swap partner.
