"Color swap" for Juanita Tortilla.

here's what i sent to Juanita
this was for the color swap organised by Jessica @ kidsnapping
Juanita chose her colour combination as lilac and grey
this had me a bit stumped TBH,
i knew i'd be able o sort out a nice assortment of buttons

but what else could i make?
***
after cutting out loads of different shades of purple,black and grey felt
and then layering it all up and re-arranging it many times
i chucked it into the debris on my {so called} work table
and dug out my precious bag of leather scraps
i think i've had these for well over 10 yrs so it's really time to start using them up!

so i made this little guy - he will be my last owl for awhile.


here are the buttons i put together
the purple flower in the middle is a real favourite,
i love this design, i think they are from the 40's
and the little dark purple beauty at the bottom
is a dorset button made by
BIGBLUEBED
who has etsy and folksy shops.



i also sent a fluffy cat card and some cat stickers
and some very yummy sweeties and chocolate
i know they are yummy cause i ate some **blush**
and now i am addicted!

What a nice swap! Love your stuff. Also I feel rather special having a little button by me included in such a gorgeous selection.

Thank you so much Megan.
I realised too late that Purple and Black isn't a common colour-combo, what more "lilac and grey"! Sorry about that. But you did SO WELL. Loving every item you sent me, yes, even the kiddy shoebox!!!
:D
