Have you heard about Secret Valentine Exchang which is organized by Sanae and Ute? One could sign up at the beginning for the year. Sanae and Ute then paired us up and everyone sends a surprise handmade Valentine’s gift to their partner. This year more than 400 (!!!) people from all over the world signed up. How awesome is that? I decided to take time to participate, too. I sewed a Annex Double Zip Pouch for Mylene from makegood.madegoods from Singapur and my beautiful gift came all the way from Canada.
I had wanted to sew an Annex ever since I added the german version to my shop. I sewed a Filigree back in fall and Secret Valentine Exchange was just the perfect reason to try out the Annex. I hadn’t sewn a box puoch ever before, but with the instructions it was pretty easy. I chose some beautiful Art Gallery Prints from Katrina Rocella and some Nani Iro for this project. I really liek how the bag turned out and hope that Mylene has some treasures to keep in there.
I’ve also received my gift already. I’ll show it on Instagram during the next days. There wasn’t an email address or social media handle given and I’ve asked Sanae if she knows them. I really want to link to the woman who sent this to me. It’s an truely incredible gift that I LOVE so much. It arrived last Thursday, which besides this was a truely terrible and sad day for me. The present helped to lift me up a little and I’m just so thankful for it. Makers are simply the best!
