Gifts for Pals

This weekend I'm with an awesome group of crafting gals, all of us met through an online forum and for the past three years have managed to meet up for a weekend long 'Craftathon'.   This year we are meeting in Hereford as the lovely Clare has arranged space for us to craft to our hearts' content for the weekend. 

I do love making gifts for friends and family, and I've made one of these 'thread catchers' for each of my crafting pals.  I've pre-scheduled this post so hopefully I will have handed the gifts out to everyone before this post goes live.  I know not all of my pals are stitchers, but these work just as well as desk tidies for paper and card scraps and I know they are all papercrafters.  They are really handy to pop into a bag or tote to take along when crafting away from home too.

Here's the thread catchers closed up


and here's a shot of them opened
 


I've tried to select fabric in the colours I think they like, I'll let you know if there was any swapping around after they all received them !
