Aaah!! I'm so glad it arrived, I've only sent letters to Canada before and the lack of delivery confirmation was starting to stress me out. The wrinkles from me cramming everything into the smallest box possible should come out with one quick steam iron (you can put a thin piece of fabric or a presscloth over the embroidery just in case).

A couple quick notes about care (you probably already know all this): the material is cotton with cotton batting inside, and is prewashed so you should be able to machine wash it no problem (I'd probably wash it on delicate or warm...but I wash everything I own on that anyway). There's insul-bright in the potholders but I'm pretty sure that is also washable.

I'm glad you like it, I had so much fun making them! The potholders are adapted from a Martha Stewart pattern for heart-shaped potholders, I found I really like the way they stay on your hands. I also discovered by accident that if you drape the apron over a chair it looks pretty amusing:

Okay, it's been too long since I checked this! Those are the best crocheted Finn and Jake I've ever seen, you got the shapes down perfectly! And I love the backpack.

The hoop is fabulous...both sides rule. You could put it on a door and turn it onto the Jake side when you are in a good mood and then flip it around when it is time for everyone to LUMP OFF and leave you alone. Haha! And I love the Jake pocket shirt, what a great idea.

So I just mailed my package to dfabbric today and imagine my delight when I came home to find a package waiting for me! Talk about serendipitous, and perfect timing because I'm going to an Easter Egg Hunt tomorrow where I can proudly show it off!

You know when you get a package that looks like this, it's gonna be good:


A purse! It's a shaped, cross-body purse with an adjustable strap and POCKETS, made out of a nice sturdy denim. Wait. That is not the most important thing about the purse. It's an LSP purse! And the applique is actually padded so it sticks out and looks, well...awesome. It's also furry.


At first when I opened it, I was like...WHERE did she find LSP fabric? But then I realized she painted the designs onto the bag lining! How cool is that.


On top of that she included a bonus crocheted keychain! I love how its arms are made from chain stitches so you can pose them in different ways. But wait, there's more! The card inside instructed me to press the keychain for a surprise -- and it talks!!! Aaah!! You must tell me where you got the pressy sound clip thing, I NEED THIS TECHNOLOGY.

Here she is telling off my stuffed Peep:

"Just admit it loverboy...you can't resist me! Well if you want these lumps, you gotta put a ring on it!" Best possible sound clip choice, by the way. All my Adventure Time loving friends are going to spontaneously combust with envy!

Thanks so much dfabbric, I just love what you made me. This is the best swap ever!

Awesome cards, everyone!

So I got a most excellent ATC from IsikkahJai, for my Regency theme:



It's a paper doll ATC! She came with two outfits, and may I say they both look splendid. I don't know if you can see from the picture, but the doll part sticks out a bit from the back of the card so you can put the dresses on. Very creative, I may just have to steal this concept someday...  Roll Eyes

I just got an extremely cool Artist's Choice card from flyingpigs24! Text says: "atomic time is being cast as the death-knell"...love it.



Is it not awesome? I love the grim old lady and feel she is somewhat balanced out by the sparkly stars  Grin
Plus, the back of the card is covered with pieces of newspaper!

I got my last card for January, from Fenore, all the way from Sweden. I'm coveting the cool stamp, so gonna use that for something!

It's my first "altered punk" card, and it's great! It looks like a distressed magazine image, which is now 100 times cooler and punkier! I also like the leopard and the anarchy symbol. Too awesome!

Love that zombie card! The lack of color is a great effect and the pose is perfect.

On a similarly gothic note I have a poe/ravens atc to post!



Isn't it great? I like the subtly distressed (variegated?) red background.

7  Mini Monster fleece sweater in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by savagerose on: February 07, 2012 03:57:55 PM
Aaah! I just discovered this board existed when I went looking for inspiration on a dog sweater last night. I need to start checking it all the time...

I have a toy poodle named Zelda and since her hair is cut pretty short on her body she wears a sweater all winter. I had previously made her a royal blue one from a resized version of this pattern, but I wasn't paying enough attention and put the collar on totally backwards and just never bothered to change it. It's a really fast to make pattern - just two pieces and the collar, and you don't even have to finish the edges.

Well no more! Last night I finally got my act together and made her a new sweater (same pattern) with some scrap fleece and added some quick embroidery: drew it on paper, put it on Sulky Solvy, then stitched it during an episode of Supernatural.


Ignore my boyfriend's arm intruding on the picture, haha.


If you can't read it the text says "mini monster," which is a completely accurate description. I kept having to chase her around the room to try the sweater on, because apparently me trying to catch her is the best game ever.

I agree, the thing I love about this is that on top of being inspired by other people's themes you also get a chance to see all the different interpretations and new techniques on the cards everyone posts.

Speaking of which, I got a new "dolls" card today, from Oath Keeper! Isn't she spunky? I like her attitude, but not as much as I like her pigtail mohawk!



Also, drawing that Voldemort ATC broke me, because all I can think when I look at the tattoos is "Death Eater."

Oh right, and I almost forgot to post the new ATC I got from tastyclaythings!



It's interactive! You pull a string on the back of the card and...the curtain rises to reveal the Shakespeare quote! Very cool idea, thanks for sending it Smiley

I'm glad you liked it, jillybeans. I actually just got a whole bunch of art and mixed media books from the library and I've been trying to soak up all the new techniques! One of them is all about surface effects, and I believe that one was streaking the background with two colors of acrylics and then distressing it with a paper towel (well that's what I used, anyway).

Also, I got an awesome Favorite Word card from indigo_roses. It's the first I've gotten for this theme, and I couldn't have asked for a better start.



She picked "defenestration," such a good word. I love how the window bars partially obscure the text and the little pronunciation guide.
