11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: I Love Cats or Dogs Swap Idea on: March 25, 2012 09:37:49 AM
Sounds good to me. I was looking for another swap to participate in. I have both dog and cats so that's easy. I think I have some fabric too in my stash but it's always fun to look for more fabric. lol. Keep me posted.

Oh, I had to go trough 3 pages to catch up with you girls!

imebears: that tail is so cute but also useful, love it. The spots, those teeth, shiny eyes... GREAT monster! The furry pincushion looks very interesting, hahaha my boys would probably steal it to touch and pet it all the time. So not only dogs do that sort of thing, bookie. Oh and that leafy fabric, beautiful. Great package!

Foxy Sam, that teeth monster is so brilliant! And I agree with our fellow swappers that kitty is so cute!! And the story about your kitty stealing it and then parenting it, camelema, priceless!! See, dogs, kitties and kids steal our stuff! KSSTT!!!  Cheesy
Awesome extras! Another super package!! Wear your kitty with pride when you go to that gala!  Grin

Fiddlegirl, love your hints... Hahaha, you're getting ME very curious too.... Hope that package won't take too long.... Wink


Thank you and glad you liked it. The pincushion isn't furry. That was a crocheted little bowl I made and it was to protect the outside of the pincushion safe during the trip. The pincushion is in a candle holder and needle felting on the inside. Since everyone seemed to like the pincushion that way I just might have to make on like that. Always looking for new things to try.

Awww, that is a cute monster, imebears!  I love the spots all over it.  Is the fabric velvet or something similar?  It looks soft.  Nice pincushion, and extra fabric.  Great package!
The fabric is from a vintage bed spread. The fabric was often used to make curtains as well. I love it because it is light weight, doesn't fray and is easy to sew. I have it in several colors. It worked great for the monster because it has a very short nap. When I think monster I think furry.

wowzeee!
when a craftster veteran like i am gets spoiled to the max by a first time swapper, it leaves me speechless, truly.
and i am humbled by your skills, imebears!


here's the "basket" that she made for me. i am putting basket in quotes because this is going to tote with me in the real world for sure!

i wish you could really see how well constructed it is, it's crazy nice and it is BIG!
there's room for plenty  more books, snacks, fqs, books, snacks, fqs...that sort of rotation Cheesy

so there were these two felted balls inside. i didn't know what to do about that so, i smelled them.
they smelled like felted wool. so i'm thinking, well, that's an interesting extra and i need to figure out what i should make of and with them.
then i saw this amazing amazing note that she crafted and wrote for me:

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_woolcatnote.jpg
imebears saw the photo of my cat Nash looking out the window on my blog and wrote, "I knew I had to make you a felted cat pin. ..the extra wool balls are for you cats. ours love to play with wool."
and then the poem "fog" by carl sandburg.
well he sure is enjoying the box that everything came in!
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_nashfebruary2012.jpg
that pin looks just like him!!

thank you so so so much!

I am so glad I sent the box for Nash. He just as bad as our cats, any box or bag is fair game. I didn't post the picture but one of my cats was checking out the baskets you made while I was trying to take pictures.  Cheesy Well enjoy and happy swapping with you.
