Scrap Bag Swap 2014

For the past 3 years I've taken part in Nin's Scrap Bag Swap.  I just can't load the photo up so have a look at her site.  We all get given a person to send a bag of scraps to and then get one in return from someone else.  Its great fun and this is what I got this year.

I love them all and have already made some fabric embroidery hoops for the spare room, just needed a couple more to finish it off.  But not sure they look right!  The screws were already there and was trying not to put more up but what ever way i position them it doesn't seem to be quite right!
There is a blog hop on with different crafters making things to give you some ideas on what can be make with little pieces of fabric so go and have a look.
I can't seem to move some of these photos around, blow it!

  1. my first tip is to always do an odd number. Even numbers are really really hard to hang

  2. These are great. The grouping would look better to the eye if you hang the largest hoop on the left botom. Imagine a capital L when grouping and the weightier piece at the juncture of two lines. Hope that helps. Other comment about odd numbers is correct. :-)
