Day 8 AAWA 12 day swap

12 days 2011 gift envelope1 packaging I sewed for my day 8 gifts. Machine stitched cardstock pouch with a Velcro closure

12 days 2011 gift envelope2a different card stock machine stitched pocket

Today is the day that the ladies in group 3 open my gift, as I was assigned day 8. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make to send out to the swappers in my group. I wanted something that wasn't too heavy and would be easy to mail.

I actually made a few things and then in the end I decided on something totally different.  I just couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to make. Below are all the card stock machine stitched envelopes  I made to put my little gifts in. I tucked 2 small gifts in each of the pouches. I didn't have enough of one style card stock and so I ended up using 3 different patterns. I got 2 pockets from one piece of card stock.

I hope the ladies in my group like my offering of the bookmark and  ornament. This has been such a fun swap and I will hate to see the swap come to an end on Christmas Eve morning.

What will I find in my day 9 packaging? You will have to come back tomorrow to take a peek.
