You're so welcome, barbolot! I had tons of fun making them for you! (Plus, it gave me a chance to destash some flannel!)

I received today!
First of all, i saw the laundry/utility bags. Awesome! And the expandable grocery bag stuffed into a little strawberry. Adorable!
Then... the reusable snack bags! Yay!! I've been wanting some for a long time!

The prints are so fun! I love them!
I think this one might be my favorite. Purple swirlies!

The little design on the wrapping:

Thank you so much for being an awesome partner, Connie! I can't wait to put these bags to use!

I love poppets! And yours is no exception, meleriffic.

My friend invited me to the Mariners' game this Friday (opening night), so i decided to make myself a hat.
The Mariners' colors are navy blue, northwest green (which is basically dark teal), and metallic silver.
I found it very difficult to capture the colors, and i don't really know why...

The same friend texted me yesterday with a request: shark coffee cozy. (Same girl i made that shark bag for a while back, actually.) Her favorite is the great white, so i tried my best. He looks like he's smiling, but he's supposed to look menacing. Heh.

My partner received for OTHPT, so i can post pictures now!
Group shot:

Okay, first, i'll go with March's theme (that is when i made all this, after all), house pride.
I knitted this little Ravenclaw, drawstring pouch:
I'd had another idea, but it didn't work out. I like this much better. Besides, it was a one tiny thing swap, and it all fit in there, so it worked out perfectly.

Next, a coupe of pins/brooches:
mgailp had several things on her wists with the deathly hallows on it. She also listed Mad Eye as one of her favorite characters, hence his eye.

And finally, my favorite:
Gail's other favorite character is Hermione, and she has Hermione's enchanted handbag on her wist. I knew i wouldn't be able to make a tiny version of it and be proud of it, so while i was thinking of how i could do it... it just came to me: coffee cozy! (I'm obsessed with making them.)
On a cup:
At first, i thought i would leave it without beading it because i loved the way it looked and didn't want to ruin it. But i picked up the beads, anyway, and got to it. Turns out it was a good choice. Totally changed it for the better.
I plan to make another one for myself.

Yay for yellow! I actually made a baby hat last night (started after midnight, though)... and it's yellow!

It was supposed to be for a newborn, but i think it's too big for her.

My partner received for the one tiny stuffie swap, so i can post pictures now. I used felt from stash. Smiley
First a TARDIS (i'm using her photo because i didn't get a good one):
And a yeti:

bananaleg: the way they were put in the box makes me laugh too.

I giggled when I packed it as well. lol!

Haha! I'm not often described as mature or ladylike. Grin

susanab - Thank your sister for me. I've been wanting a cool rat pattern (my best friend's nickname is Rat), and i think that is just the one! Looks awesome!

The yeti squirrel is cracking me up!!

I received from amydice today! Perfect, let me tell you what.
First of all, the way they were put in the box made me laugh because i'm a child:

Then we've got THE DOCTOR!

I freaking love his hair! And the jacket. Nice and soft for when i cuddle him to my face. Haha.

And then the thing i was really crossing my fingers for: BIGFOOT!

(I thought it was fitting to use the blurry photo.)
Less blurry, if you're into that:

And the BFFs together:

Seriously, so perfect. We both love that we chose to craft the same themes. Cheesy
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect partner.

Thank you, Amy!!

aprettymess - All of your skirts are so pretty. And the headband is super cute!

I made this a while ago, and never took pictures...
I usually put two straps on my bags, but this one was made from a child's t-shirt, so it's pretty small... and one strap just seemed a better fit. The shirt is 100% organic cotton, and it says, "I'VE GONE ENVIRONMENTAL"

Up close: Reversed:

A hat i made last week:
For some reason, you can see it better without the flash:

My sister was married on Tunnels Beach on Kaua'i last summer, and it POURED! (Right until the end... when they got a beautiful double rainbow.) So, she used a red umbrella up until she started "the walk." Sad part is, the umbrella broke. But we didn't want to get rid of it because it's her wedding umbrella! So, i was trying to think of things i could make with it. The first, obvious choice: market/tote bag. But she's got purses and bags out the wazoo, so she didn't need any more of those. Then, i got the idea of making a hood. It rains a fair amount here, and she ALWAYS complains. Especially when she's forgotten to wear a jacket with a hood. I'm pretty positive she'll never actually use it, but i think it's kind of cool, anyway. (It doesn't look quite as weird as it does in the pictures, if you're wearing it right...)

It wraps in front of the neck, partially so it won't fall off, and also to keep your warm. I used the snap to close it. And it's lined with some fleece i had in my stash.

And here's what i'm working on:
This shrug.
I want to make a full sweater someday, so i'm easing into it.
