Lolly Poppetjes

Hello dears,

Lisette and I joined a lolly swap of the Nederlandse Swappers.

In my previous post you can see that she had made a gorgeous lolly swap.

Today I'm going to show you what I've been making for Lisette. We made two lolly puppets (lollypoppetjes). I thought it a fun idea since "pop" in Dutch is a puppet, so a "lollypop" would be a lolly puppet. "Poppetjes" are tiny puppets.

Besides the lollypoppetjes I also made Lisette a dress form tag and party banners.

For the tag I used plain cardboard which I covered with the same fabric I used for the puppet and the flags. The back of the cardboard I painted white so I could easely write on it.

The flags for this party banner are all handstitched by me.

And of course I added some goodies for Lisette which she can use for her crafts. I was quite thrilled when I got the news that Lisette and I would be partners in this lolly swap, since we had just started emailing each other as blogging friends. I'm so happy we've met through blogging! Be sure to visit her beautiful blog.

Happy crafting to you all!

xx Wen

  5. Ik was ook zo blij met jou. Heel grappig, Marjanne wist niet dat we samen mailden maar dacht dat wij leuk bij elkaar pasten qua stijl.
    Ik ben zo blij met alles wat ik van jou mocht ontvangen. Ik heb vanmiddag jouw spulletjes gefotografeerd maar jouw foto's zijn veel mooier. Mag ik ze van je"jatten"?
    Bedankt voor al het moois dat ik van je heb gekregen. Je hebt er zoveel tijd en aandacht aan besteed, echt super!
