Package received from princesspimp81!  It was beyond wonderful.... I loved everything and she is very talented... and the extras she spoiled me with were beyond belief! 
Here is the who shebang!

I know... insane right?!?!?!

Here is the hand made stuff!

You can also see the wonderful yarn that she got for me...

And the most unbelievable of all crafted things... a beautiful cowl just for me!!

Here is the super cool other stuff!

Yep thats a cool lava lamp and some WONDERFUL smelling perfume!

And here are all my extras... Yarn Yarn and More Yarn!

I could not have been happier or more spoiled.  I have always wanted and Amigurumi and now I have a cool ninja.  I have everything I need to make a bag too!
ALSO she sent a CD with lots of patterns for me to try... I really am going to try hard to make this happen!

OK so I have been really slow and out of it lately but I got TWO AWESOME packages and I am finally getting around to posting them!

First one is from Meshelltakeone... here it is!

Beautiful yarn and crochet hooks and some great books... now I have NO reason not to learn to crochet!

Second box is from Pupper and I am not sure how she got it all in there!  WOW
Here is HALF of it... yarn, stamps, some great fabric... awesome

Second HALF is all paper... beautiful stuff... There is also a hand done card in there but it was blowing and I think you can't see it very  well....

WONDERFUL stuff... I  love it all... thanks so much!

OK so I got my first project done.... I made a wool messenger bag based on a tute I found a month or so ago.

The link to my project ( I was so proud I started a thread on it to get some critiques.. I am a novice sewer!)

But here is a pic of the front so you get an idea....

I am thinking of adding buttons on the front but I love it so much right now I am just going to leave it for a bit!
One down 49 to go! Smiley

54  My first big bag! Wool Messenger Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by nostephot on: January 05, 2010 08:10:13 PM
So I am doing this 50 projects for 2010.  I am not sure why but I decided to attack what I had initially thought was project far beyond my capabilities but I did it!  And I could not be happier! 

I found this tutorial on Emily's So Much For My Plans blog:  http://somuchformyplans.blogspot.com/2009/09/mail-bag-tutorial.html

And I thought... I really like this and I have that awesome coat wool that I think would be perfect to use!

So I took  my chances on using the gray wool that I was coveting and I could NOT BE HAPPIER!  I honestly did not think I could do it!

This is the front

This is the inside of the bag... I figured out how to make the pockets out of the lining ( I know not complicated for sewers but I was proud of myself)

This is the pocket I made on the front... has velcro closure and it is folded so it is expandable! 

Ok so I know that this may not be a huge deal for some experienced sewers but for me I could not be more excited!  It is 18 inches long and 15 inches wide.... the strap is probably too long but it is perfect being across the body which I like to do! 

I am VERY open for comments and criticisms!  I am still learning!
