I have always loved small packages. It seems they contain the best surprises. So when I saw the idea of a snippet roll on Pinterest, I was IN! AND when I saw that Heidi hosted a snippet swap, I was double IN! After chatting a little with her about the details another swap was born. I knew the Joyeux girls would love to play. We all created for different girls and the rules were simple ~ creams and neutral tones, vintage children theme and at least 18" long. I picked my friend,Vickie's name, out of the hat (it was really just a mess of little pieces of paper with names on it but you get the picture).
My favorite thing about this project is you are really meant to dip into your stash of vintage goodies. You only need small pieces of this and that little pretty ~ hence the name snippet.
After you snip, sew and glue, the whole roll is tucked around an old vintage spool. I thought it would be pretty for Vickie to be able to hang her roll if she wanted so I added an old vintage key to the top with silk ribbon.
All my favorite elements went into this pretty ~ laces, vintage pins, millenary, mops. The options are endless. . .
I do believe the new year will bring some more creative time making these! Only 6 more days until Christmas! Hope you are all taking a little time to enjoy the spirit of the holidays
