11  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 (signups end 10/6, send by 11/3) on: October 01, 2014 01:54:44 PM
I finally decided what I'm going to offer this year!  I'm going to contribute to the felty goodness, too Smiley

I will make 4 Dala horses and 4 matryoshka dolls.  I made these two cuties on the weekend (of course, they were "inspired by" ornaments I found on Pinterest):


There will be different colour combos, and the matryoshka dolls will likely have different flowers/designs, but they will be in this style.  I hope you think they're as cute as I do!  Definitely making extras for family gifts this year.

Cheers~

The last 2 are adorable!  I've never seen the tea light snowmen, what a fun idea.  The quilted trees are great Smiley

Woo hoo Smiley  I'm so happy to see that you like your package Anna~ It was fun making everything for you.  The mittens are made of wool...  I'm pretty sure I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease, but am not 100% (I de-stashed, go me!).  I just grabbed woolen yarn in the colours that you commented on, so I am glad that their super-softness is an added bonus for you!  The pattern is definitely a Lion Brand (free) pattern for flip-top gloves.  I added the stripes  Wink

And now to show off the goodies that I received... My phone takes terrible photos, so I do apologize for not-great quality of these ones.  I didn't want to wait any longer to show them off though. Talk about serious talent!

The whole package:  A gorgeous (amazing, wonderful) pillow with adorable little felt birdies embroidered on, and 2 beautiful sets of handmade stitch markers:

(You can see the great postcard that Anna included for me...  she also sent me a 2nd blank one...  No way she could have known, but I'm a Post Crossing addict too, so this is a wicked bonus for me Smiley )

Here are some close ups of the stitch markers!!

(Anna - are these pearls??)



And the pillow (wow!) ~ I can only imagine how much time and effort went into creating all of these perfectly stitched birds and lines.  Thank you!


Close up of a couple of the cuties:


Thanks again to both my partner & to our wonderful organizer!  Great swap Smiley

That bag is seriously awesome Smiley  Love all of the packages lately!

Anna~ Sorry, I haven't made it to the post office yet  Angry  Silly work keeps being too busy, and I haven't been able to leave "on time" to make it there before it closed yet this week.  Today is my day!!  I WILL get there...  (think positive, right?)

Hello!

My super sweet partner, flygirl88, from the very old "Simple/Easy Swap"... she suggested that I enter Marvin.  So here I am Smiley

This was one of the very first (if not the first) knitted toy that I made... I did google a pattern, and was lucky enough to find one... There don't seem to be any non-copy-righted Marvin doll opportunities these days!

Anyhow, he was SUPER fun to make, and I am so thankful that he went to a very good home... Check out the photos that flygirl sent to me a few weeks ago:






Hope you like him Smiley
