Covert Robin

Oh boy, I've really gone and done it now! A crafty friend of mine is a cohost of a Covert Robin from imagine gnats.  A whoosie-whatsie from where now you say?  A covert robin is like a secret craft swap.  People sign up and then the hosts send out the names, and you make a craft for someone, but they don't know who you are, and you don't know who has you!  It was a spur of the moment decision..sign up ended on the 28th of February.  When did I sign up?  The 28th of February, of course!

I was suuuuuuper excited to get my person's name yesterday! I already had an idea of what to make...paper pieced hexagon sewing machine pillow anyone? (Ambitious, I know...curse you pinterest!!!!)  When the email came yesterday, I was so stoked about getting someone from the UK. I was in the mall, but immediately went to her blog.  She is young and soooooo hip.  I, on the other hand, am sooo boring! Seriously, this girl is the deifnition of cool with her super trendy clothes and funky crafts.  I am so worried about making something that she will like!  The good news is that she knits and sews, so I suppose I can't go wrong with either of those, but I have to find something ultrahip, yet still chic and girly! I'm talking a cross between Jane Austen and vintage granny squares here people! *le sigh*  This girl looks totally adorable in all her pics.  I'm all like, here I am in my yoga pants and hoodie.

Sure there are a million things I can make, but this has to be unique and special and something I would never have the guts to wear, edgy, pretty, vintage, and modern all at the same time! Leg warmers?  A beret?  A bag?  Suggestions? Suggestions, anyone? Well, I am off to scour ravelry patterns and pinterest! Wish me luck!


  1. I'm sure you've already picked something, but I vote bag. You always pick great fabric, and it's an accessory that is also useful. This sounds like a lot of fun.

  2. So glad you signed up! You are amazing and hip, yourself lady. It's going to be great!! So happy you are enjoying it!
