Vintage Darlings Snippet Roll Swap Part Two - My Snippet Roll From Tabitha

Oh, yes - finally you get to see what Tabitha made for me for the Vintage Darlings snippet roll swap! Her work was exquisite as always, and the packaging was so sweet. I opened the box to find these little packets.

I had requested creams and neutrals for my snippet roll, and she found so many lovely things to include. She even made a tiny hanger for the spool!

Look at this little sweetheart! I love all the laces and the little beads.

And, oh, this velvet ribbon! It's such a lovely shade, and there's a wonderful button.

Another cutie - don't you love that little pouty face surrounded by vintage millinery flowers?

At the bottom Tabitha included some beaded floral bits. She didn't know that I had a few of those I used in swaps and had been hoarding my very last one to use on something for myself. I love them! Plus more velvet ribbon, beautiful lace and bugle beads.

She backed the roll with some vintage pieced satin. I thought at first it was just quilted, but every little square is a separate piece.

She sent lots of pretties along with the snippet roll - a bingo card, crocheted lace, velvet ribbon and beaded trim - and I especially love the little crocheted bit and the "coquette" label.

Also, a fun necklace from Good JuJu (my favorite shop in KC's West Bottoms,) a pretty napkin, a cabinet card. pretty mocha lace, a tiny ball of crochet thread and a little frozen Charlotte.

I feel totally spoiled. Thank you, Tabitha! And a big thank you to Heidi for organizing the swap!

For your viewing pleasure, here are links to blog posts by some of the other participants showing their snippet rolls. They're all wonderful!

  4. I am so glad you are were happy with what i created for you. You are a much more experienced swapper than I so i always try to bring my "A" game to the table. That extra soft velvet was something i had been hoarding forever and knew it would be perfect for this swap . I also loved using that tiny glass buttons since it was screaming "use me " ...ohh and the mocha lace is from good juju to!

    1. Tabitha, it is "perfectly perfect" as a friend of mine says. I love swapping creations with you!

  5. Both the snippet roll you created and the one you received are just gorgeous! This was such a neat swap, and I love making snippet rolls now! :)
