Summer 2012 Handmade Gift Exchange

Twice a year Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous hosts a handmade gift exchange where you get to make a handmade gift for someone and you get to receive a handmade gift too! I participated last November and had a fun time getting to know a crafter from Utah and Delaware, so I was excited to get to do it again this month.
The gal I get to make a gift for had "liked" a couple of things to give me an idea of what she liked, I also checked out her blog and Pinterest. One thing I noticed she liked was a coffee cozy. I followed a great tutorial from Skip to My Lou to make one using Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 fabric.
I also made a business card holder using this lovely tutorial, and a zipper pouch.
The last thing I made is a little coffee banner. She mentioned that her kitchen is decorated with coffee decor and prints so I thought this would be a cute little decoration.

It's all packed up and ready to ship! Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous is so great for putting this exchange all together! Thanks, Linda!
