Testing testing..

After all that frenzied corset sewing of last week, I've been wanting to do something simpler, easier, and less intense this week! So I've been prototyping xmas presents again (oh don't look at me like that!! I want to be prepared this year ok?).

And I've been experimenting with wrappings and accessories for my soap, along with 'packs' and bags and accessories. I haven't got many of the ideas out of my head and onto the worktable yet but I have plans!

This Calendula soap is pictured with a boxy pouch which I made from this tutorial ... and inside the pouch is also a little bag of bath salts and some calendula bath sachets.

I'm entering this pouch and it's contents into the Sew Mama Sew "Giveaway Day" which is on 27 May. I like the idea of lots of little giveaways happening on the same day all around the world! So stay tuned for your chance to win it, or go to Sew Mama Sew for a list of participating blogs, and enter into as many draws as you can shake a keyboard at!

I have a reason to be extra good now if this is what Santa has in store this year!
