Prayers and positive thoughts going out to all who need them.  So sorry to hear of your friend's tragic passing, Allie.

All the crafties look wonderful and I'm sure are being used with much delight Smiley

School starts tomorrow .... plotting some crafties ... *wicked evil grin*

Nice bag!  A roomy, sturdy tote is essential for traveling the world AND thrifting - perfect project Smiley

For this challenge, I'm submitting the package  that was sent out for my very first swap. 
It was in the Ongoing Wish Swap Round 115, which can be found here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439454.0;all

I claimed Grab a coffee for a recipe binder and some Christmas gift bags.  (I made 2 binders, about a dozen gift bags, and sent a few extra items as well.)  For the recipe binders, I started with two 3-ring binders and made reversible covers for them.  The wider binder has a fabric pocket on the outside front, for quick access to notes or things being worked on.  It also has pocket on the inside, and a cord to use as a bookmark.  The fabrics are: a brown to match her kitchen, and a floral-on-cream with gold glitter (she mentioned liking cream with glitter).



The smaller recipe binder (for desserts and special occasions) is covered in a cream fabric that has very small gold glittery speckles all over, and a touch of wide cream lace on the corner.  I added gathered lace and a button that looks like a wood circle (she is collecting wood circles for a project).  The binder has the floral-on-cream fabric on the inside, plus reverses to the floral-on-cream outer covering for a different look.

Before the button was added:

Since Grab a coffee had mentioned holiday gift bags,  I made some in various sizes and with various fabrics and trims.  Some have drawstring closures, and others have velcro. 

I tucked a few magazines (on her wish list) into a gift bag, added some Starbucks coffee (on her list), some local chocolate and postcards, and a circle of wood for her project (on her list).
** See her pics in the gallery here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438694.440

It was a wonderful experience and I hope Grab a coffee liked the items as much as I enjoyed making them for her. Smiley

Thank you for reading! Smiley

I received an amazing package from rscowtown!  Look at the goodies!  She sent lovely threads and pre-wound bobbins in a donut bobbin carousel.  Also there are long straight pins with easy grip balls on the heads (great for those days when arthritis is rampant).



In the package, there was an assortment of paints to make any artist jealous.  To top things off, she included some brushes for fine detailing and for one stroke painting.   I can't wait to start painting!




Thank you so much, rscowtown!  I really appreciate these supplies Smiley  Hugs

Wow you have been a busy bee!  They all look very well made, and the fabrics are nice.  I'm a fan of MM as well and like the cheerful print on the first bag.  The button closure on the blue plaid pouch is interesting.
