oooh! it makes me so happy to hear you like what i sent you! i was getting rather self conscious at the end of this swap. i know everyone makes such amazing stuff and i wanted so bad for mine to be great as well, oh the pressure.
the note book is painted with Leeho's puffy fabric paint pens. the fabric gets puffy when you iron, blow dry it, or put it in the oven as i did. just be careful not to forget about it if you try this as home kids, this was just seconds from getting all burned.
the tin was one of my favourite items to make. i think i'll have to make one for myself as well.
the mini hitcher hat was my absolute favourite so i'm really happy you love it as well. i thought it'd be so you! oh you HAVE to dress up as a burlesque hitcher for halloween! that would be so great! (and you have to show us the pictures as well!)
