Back Tack Swap

The Back Tack project involved receiving supplies from a stranger, making a sewing noticn from those supplies and sending the completed item to yet another stranger.

What fun this was!

Here is the collection of supplies sent for me to use.

I made a box, a sewing machine needle case and a knitting needle case (of homemade felt!). My recipient like to knit and sew, and garden, so I tried to cover all three. Those are ladiebugs and doodlebugs crawling up the knitting needle case.

Here the cases are opened up.

The needle case pattern can be found here.


  1. You have done such a great job! I am your secret sender, and I am sending in the morning. Actually I was 95% finished when I received a hugish job and had to go do some on-site work, so long story short a few days got by me. Alas, everything is wrapped up and ready for the post in the morning.

    Sorry i forgot to email or somment as well!

  2. Hi! I like your blog. I hope I'll have something similar in the future.
