I feel like I'm flogging a dead horse here, but I can't emphasise this enough, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Once you've received your parcel please be polite and personally thank your swap partner with either an email or a thank you card. Just posting on your blog will NOT do.
Let your hostess know when you have received your parcel. these may seem like simple things, and they are...... but........ I speak from past experience, with upset swappers who don't receive a thank you, just a read it on my blog type comment, and as a hostess having to cruise all the blogs to see if parcels have arrived.
Ok now on to the fun stuff.
Last week Stephanie shared with you a variety of Christmas stockings, so I thought this week I'd share some links for those Christmas sacks/gift bags. So let's get started.
Let's start with a terrific tutorial from one of our Christmas swappers Rachel. If you visit Rachel's blog, you'll find the tutorial in a PDF format on her sidebar. Or if you would prefer it straight from her blog you'll find it here, Thanks Rachel.
Pattern from Debbie Mumm.
The Wandering Sack made with Christmas fabrics could be very cute.
These links below are for patterns for purchase.
