The Great Reveal

Jane received my package yesterday, so now I can reveal all of the goodies that I put together for the Sweet Goodness Swap. This was so much fun. Orange and yellow are some of my favorite colors, so it was fun for me to base an entire swap package on them. So, without further delay, here it is:My container was the pleated tote, which I made from thrifted vintage linens and fabrics. I found the napkins holder at the thrift store and then made napkins to go with it. The napkins were a great stash busting project - I used up two and half sheets in no time! I also made her a retro half apron. I threw in some sour tangerine Altoids, one orange and one yellow fat quarter and some orange and yellow ribbons. I love how bright and summery it turned out - that was the point of all that yellow and orange, so I guess I am saying I am pleased the colors served their purpose.

I am loving looking at everyone's packages and I can't wait for the next round!
