I'm so happy you like the package JS!!!

I am hoping I will be able to make another claim this round, but right now I am working on a purse for my mom's birthday in a couple weeks, and I want to make sure I can get it finished in time.

I have two Janomes and a Janome serger. The one I use right now is the Schoolmate S-3015. It is a really basic machine with not a lot of features, which to me is less stuff that could break! Since I make mostly clothing, the machine has worked great for me. It can handle leather well.

Also, I have started on my mug rug for JS!

Hi, Im Caitlin from California! I live with my boyfriend, our two birds, and one cat. We live in a small rural town, relatively close to San Francisco. I do not have any allergies, but I am not fond of smoke smell. My favorite colors are purples, blues, greens, black, turquoise, silver, and jewel tones. I dont really like bright reds and yellows (as a pale ginger, they are not colors that look good on me, lol), but its fine if they are used in small amounts. I love animals, especially birds, pigs, elephants, llamas, camels, etc. I also love nature, trees, animal skulls and skeletons, space/stars, maps and globes, Harry Potter, Futurama, Tim Burton, ancient history/cultural items (ancient Egypt, Inca, Maya, Celtic,...). If you see something on my pinterest that is not listed below feel free to PM me if you want to make it.

Hope your little one starts feeling better soon anna.wahnsinn!

I just sent in my questionnaire! I have been thinking about doing one of the OWS swaps for a while and finally decided I should just do it. I have an idea of something to make for JS, so if no one claims her before I get added to the swap I will make my first claim! so I made my first claim!

Excited to hear about new shops for Fall! I will be back this fall and hopefully will have a lot new items. I am trying to get some mug rugs done and maybe a few new purses, also might try to make some more skull candles like the ones I had last fall.

Thanks artsycandice, Patraw, and Lilacsinflight! And thank you to everyone who voted for my project! Grin

Curious, did you have to iron at any point?  Ask because I am wondering how the neoprene type material reacts to being ironed for my own non-contest related project that I am working procrastinating on.

NoShowJr, I didn't iron the tablet sleeves at any point. To do the top stitching I had to use lots on pins to flatten while I was sewing. The material is a little different then neoprene, I think it may have melted if I tried to iron it. If you decide to try ironing your neoprene I recommend using a test scrap and ironing it on a low setting with a press cloth just to be safe.
