My First Craftpod

You may have heard of Craftpod, the quarterly craft subscription box. I decided to give it a try, and a few weeks ago the Spring box plopped through my letterbox. I was thrilled with it. Not only did it contain all the materials and instructions for two gorgeous projects, but also a selection of stationery with the prettiest spring botanical illustration and a ginger and lemon tea-bag so I could have a nice cuppa while I worked on my embroidery.
I didn't photograph the contents unfortunately but you can see previous boxes here which will give you an idea.
The two projects were a drawstring linen bag.

How glorious is that mustard yellow linen? The lining fabric was my own addition, just an oddment I had which happened to be the perfect colour.
And an embroidery hoop with a spring botanical theme.

Again the buttons and bird charm were my additions, because when did I ever do anything the way it was designed?
So, there you have it. My first ever Craftpod. Looking forward to the summer one now.

How lovely to get a crafty surprise in your mailbox each quarter, Christine! I just love this one and your addition of the little buttons and charms make it even more special :)

I like the idea of these subscription boxes. The Crafty Kitten one would be my first choice.
Love the buttons you added to the embroidery.

Your Craft Pod designs are wonderful, I am a lover of using buttons on stitching.
The lining fabric is perfect with the bag color.

That's really cool! I like this kind of monthly/seasonal boxes. Maybe I'll try a crafty one out some time.
