Sew I made pretty pegs!

Another swap recently called for decorated clothespins. It was PriscillaBrunson's swap and a really original idea :) I have some gorgeous japanese paper that were a present to Mummy Sew, which i cut a few strips off to paper the front of my pegs with.
I then glued some Butterfly/Heart gems to the front, and a magnet to the back et voila! Fridge Magnet Clips! For photo's and notes and the like.

And here is what i got in return

These from Lishmo all the way from Texas! These were absolutely adorable and the extra's she sent were wonderfully original! Just look at that ribbon, its so pretty i may simply make it into a cuff. So different!! And then these...

from Pensylvania! What an awesome swap :)


  1. I am sure you said yours weren't as nice as the ones you received....yours are gorgeous!!!

    Was lovely to meet you and your Mum at the weekend and hope the scraps are ok.

    I am finally 'with blog' so please stop over when you have a chance and say hello!.


  2. Thanks for visiting my site, when my daughter does a blog swap she usually puts in a good word for me. Cats, what can you say about them, can't live with them, can't live without them. Thanks for your comment on the little sun dress, we are expecting a grand-baby in May, the parents are planning to be surprised so we won't find out till it's born what it will be, we're hoping for a girl so I can make some more cute little dresses (they already have a boy). My girls are too grown up now, 22 & 12 they only thing they want homemade is pajamas pants. The parents of our grand-babies isn't my 22 year old, it is my step-son who is much older, just wanted to clarify that.

  3. Hi grammie, i meant 'dresser' not 'dresses' (ooops) and i had a look for those dresses...can't find them but i'm sure they're lovely! x

  4. Hello! ellysn from swap-bot. I love those tags... when i go to the shops and see these cute tags on sale, it always always ALWAYS tempt me sooo much to buy and when i start, i can never decide which one to choose... so i either end up with sooo many, or nothing which will bother me for the rest of the day :)
