I joined yet another swap in the Itty Bitty group on ravelry. This is such a great group to swap with and they've become virtual friends through the swaps. This swap is a three month swap Teddy Bear Picnic swap. The first package was to be a kit for some part of the picnic. The elements can be sewn, knit, or bought and has to include a bear, a tea set, a blanket, and food. At least one element has to be knit or be a kit for a pattern from the Itty Bitty books. I sent mine out and I was so excited about sending it out before the deadline (I'm always late) that I forgot to get a picture! My kit included a tote bag, stitch markers, bamboo needles, yarn, and note pad to make the finger food in Itty Bitty toys. I also included a teddy bear quilt that matched the tote bag to sit on while stitching. The bag and quilt were from leftover fabric from other projects so it was a good use of fabric.
My swap package arrived while we were camping and is the kit to make the tea set using Tahki cotton classic. I spied this pattern a while back and almost bought it so I was pretty excited my swap partner included it. The bag and stitch markers she made and I'm pretty excited about both.
