1  Re: Pocket Letter Swap 1 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: June 07, 2016 05:31:47 AM
DH was home from work for a minute when I happened to receive my pocket letter from Dearbluebird.  It was so amazing that both DH and I had our breath taken away when I opened up the envelope!  (Speaking of, I took a photo of the envelope but when I uploaded it to picasa, it some how disappeared.  Cry Angry ) Suffice it to say, the envelope was very decorated and I saved it to use with my future ATCs!  Smiley)

Here is what the pocket letter was wrapped in:

(BTW...how did you make the yellow part?  I like how it came out!)
Here is the front of the pocket letter:

And the back:

As you can see, SIMPLY AMAZING!  THANK YOU DEARBLUEBIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I am seeing correctly, you took a big coloring page and cut it into nine ATCs, am I correct?  I LOVE that idea!  It's so different!

I love the bandanas as wrapping paper too, both for the environmental friendly element, but also b/c they are so colorful!

I finished the afghan I was working on to donate to my Temple's Chinese Auction in November:

And a close up of the stitches:

I've posted photos of a crocheted blanket in the same colors and I've also posted photos of a blanket made with these stitches.  One, once I find a color combo I find interesting, it's hard for me to let go.  Roll Eyes  Two, I'm the same way with fun crochet stitches.  Roll Eyes  And three, for awhile there I was buying the soft 'pound of yarn' skeins, just b/c I liked the colors!  You'll be seeing another afghan soon!  Grin

I received from pioneer9 yesterday and I'm thrilled!  Here is the page:

And the awesome extra fabric she sent me, which I'm going to use for TM patches  Grin:

I've already hung up the page on my wall along with the one I received from jkaywiz. 

Thank you again!

I received from the talented and thoughtful jkaywiz last week.  I'm sorry for the delay in posting photos, but here they are:

That is how it was taped when the package arrived!  I love the rainbow tape, it made me smile!

This is the page in it's entirety!  It took my breath away when I first saw it-it's perfect!

Some of the detail...

More detail...

Some supplies to use on my next page.  Cheesy

Some VERY nifty fabric to use on a future page as well!

Thank you so very much, jkaywiz!  Grin

I love the Halloween thingy you made, AIMR!  It's 3-D holiday art!
Congrats lindy on being made a mod!

A few random things I've made:

The random things are as follows:  a TM patch for the bag I want to make with them, a tallit pouch for my DD for her bat mitzvah, and the second fabric journal page I made for the swap.

I am wondering...for us gardeners out there...does that count as part of the craftalong?

Yea, jkaywiz, you received it!  Here's a photo that I took of the front:

I used the same cutout idea that I did on the other page for my other partner, except that I cut out around one of the butterflies that was printed on the fabric, so that the cutout shape was of a butterfly! The one wing that is sewn to the top left of the cutout is a wing left over from that cutout . I used pastel varigated thread to sew around the cutout.  I made three holes on the bottom to put the piece of lace thru.  To the left of the lace is a small silver butterfly charm.  I also used a metal butterfly that was meant for papercraft to decorate the fabric page.  I used two layers of fabric and one of canvas and stitched around the edges.  I cut the edges of the fabric on an angle for this page and I hope it frays quickly!  There's also a handmade label sewn onto the back that says:  Handmade by Barbara.

audio, I love the order pad cover you made!  We go out to eat entirely too much, and when we do, I notice special things like that and ask the waitress about it.  It's so cute!

Here's some stuff I wanted to share and I hope I can and I hope it's in the right place!

First-my first ever fabric journal page...made for that swap:

An ATC stamp I got in the mail yesterday!  Just in time for me to use on the ATC's I'm making for the 'Pocket Swap'!  I feel so "professional"  Roll Eyes being able to add this to my ATC's:

I went to a craft fair yesterday...saw this piece of art...made a real connection with it and with the creator of it (they didn't have a business card but we left our email with them...I hope they contact us):

On so many levels, this sign makes me giggle every time I see it!   Cheesy  That, and my younger DD does a wicked impression of how the owl looks!  Grin

Certainly, AIMR!  Grin  I don't know how much better this photo is but here goes:

This is probably not new info. for those of you who have made these before, but here's what I did on mine:
-I used three layers of fabric: the top one you see, the one you see thru the hole with the butterfly, and canvas on the back page.
-After sewing around the hole where the butterfly is, I sewed all three pages together around the edges, leaving about a half inch to a full inch on all four sides.
-I left the long side on the left alone for binding, if pioneer9 chose to.
-Along the other three sides, I cut into all three layers, hoping for a frayed effect.  I don't think it happened, but I tried.  Roll Eyes
-The green leaves on the page are from a papercrafting kit a fellow Craftster so generously gave me.  Grin
-The bronze colored metal leaf is actually one part of a clasp that I purchased on clearance at Joann's!  Cheesy
-I sewed brown seed beads along the length of some of the branches...
-And then did a basic stitch with brown thread along others.
-I used small wood trees from yet another kit that the same Craftster gave me!  Kiss  I sewed them on with purple thread to give the page a pop of color and pioneer9 said purple was one of the colors she liked.

You two are just crazy.  Crazy, I tell ya!  Grin Kiss

I received my swap package from artsycandice today and it was well worth the wait!  She is so creative and talented I couldn't wait to see what she made me!  I'm sure you can't wait either, so here goes  Grin:

A photo of the box how I received it.  I don't know why, but all the PO stickers just cracked me up:

A photo of the box when I opened it:

*drum roll*...all the awesome contents!

Thank you so much artsycandice for an awesome swap package, and to gala_apples for organizing!
