matchbox for Haiti by Hand

I decided to make an extra of  the matchboxes for Heather's swap to donate to Rebecca's Haiti by Hand. Want to see what's inside?

A little felt nest pin*
A real speckled quail's egg (hollowed)

A glittery bird clip

A tiny bird charm on a bit of vintage lace

A glittery tag

A stacked pin

And a tiny needlefelted bluebird.

All in this matchbox I embroidered. You can buy it for $25 over here. (All of the $25 will go directly to help people in Haiti rebuilding their lives)

SOLD (thanks!)

There are some other matchboxes from the swap at the Haiti by Hand shop too, including my swap partner Lynn...check them out!

*Betz White taught me how to make this nest pin.
