#2018 Secret Valentine Exchange Reveal

I can reveal that my 2018 Secret Valentine is Kate who is known as @missfoxlove on Instagram. Kate contacted me yesterday that she succumbed to opening her Secret Valentine gift early so I can safely show you the gifts I made without spoiling the surprize!

As you know from my previous SVE post Kate loves red, pink, blue and silver colours and has a thing for foxes, pineapples, flowers and clouds imagery.
I raided my stash fabrics and found a number of cottons that would be perfect to make a zippered pouch or two in bright pink, a Japanese cherry blossom floral and a Cloud 9 'crane' fabric for the lining. (Yes, I am on a zippered pouch roll right now!)

The first pouch was made using the Noodlehead zippered pouch pattern and the second one was free-styled just as a simple pouch without a gusset. I also included some little gifts of some notebooks, rainbow bobbin cases pack (from Tiger) and some Graze nuts, chocolate and cherries wrapped in cloud wrapping paper!
Prepare for lots of photos!

A big shout out to the gorgeous Sanae and Ute who have organised this fantastic crafty sharing of love around the world! I am looking to #2019SVE already!

    1. Hi Ute - I didn't realise the cranes were one of your fabric fabrics - it is very pretty. Thanks for organising this fab exchange again!
