Everything so far is adorable! BUT... prepare to be jealous!!
So I always list a ton of things on my "what do you want" list, to give people lots of options of what to make. I suggested, "Maybe something like http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/artsycrafty_babe/2009/06/the-people-have-spoken.html
" and got:
A PHOEBE BAG. Look at that decorative stitching!!
Please tell me you did this with a machine, and not by hand. PLEASE. Because... wow! I've never thought to use a decorative stitch like this before, so I'm stealing the idea! And the straps look wonderful, don't know what you were complaining about.
Next I said I needed a wallet, maybe something like http://www.sew4home.com/projects/fabric-art-accents/eclectic-elements-tim-holtz-coats-fabric-wallet
THAT EXACT WALLET. With more decorative stitching on the inside!
Crazy! I also said I needed a tea wallet, and a little make-upy type bag...
...of which I got both, one filled with delicious, delicious candy and the other with a whole variety of TEA~ including a few Earl Grey, my favorite!!
Then I said I liked big heavy zippers and got...
... a felt ruppe keychain (we're both Zelda fans!) and a... a.... pouch... made entirely out of a zipper. Like.... she took half a black and half a purple zipper, zipped them together, and... wrapped them... around.. .and sewed them... It just blows my mind, how do you do this?!
So that's literally EVERYTHING I put on my want list. Do you understand....? ALL OF IT.
Oh, and plus this:
A bear hat! Hilarious! I crochet/sell nerdy hats (seriously... like... I've probably made well over 100), but they're all a little too nerdy for me to want to wear in public, so I don't actually HAVE a hat to wear.... and now I do!
SOOOO~ Ninjaturtlegal, thank you for everything, it is all super lovely! I only hope my package can live up to yours....
