Here are the pics of the beautiful package I received from Leashhh:


This pic shows the whole kit-n-caboodle (or should I say, BUN-n-kaboodle?!).
Leashhh crafted a hand-painted treat jar, a fabric cage cover and water bottle cover for the bun-bun, and a pretty rabbit charm necklace for me. She also included some store-bought treats, and a rabbit-shaped soap (or is it a candy? dunno what it is?).




The fabric she chose for the cage and bottle covers is lovely...the colors are great!  Smiley


The necklace has a really cool asymmetrical design that suits my style, and I love the rabbit head charm!

Thank you, Leashhh, for a sweet and thoughtful package! This was a fun swap Smiley

If anyone wants to try making the giant cuddle bed, here is the pattern I created:

--Lay a piece of prewashed cotton on a piece of prewashed fleece.

--Using a sharpie tied on a string, draw a giant circle. The circle for mine had a radius of 17 inches (diameter of about 34 in.), so the sharpie was on a 17 inch length of yarn, which I held down at center point with one hand, and drew a large perfect circle with the other. (string + marker = ultimate compass hack)  Grin

--Cut out circle and sew two pcs together, leaving small opening to turn.

--Turn, and now sew around edges again, created tunnel for elastic.

--Run elastic thru tunnel, using a giant safety pin at the end of the elastic to work it thru with your hands (another handy sewing hack).

--Sinch elastic tight and tie off; close sm opening with hand stiches or machine.

--Fill center with scraps.

Just saw on USPS tracking that my package to Leashhh was finally delivered! (Yay!)

So, since it won't be spoiling any surprises, here are the pics I took of what I made for Leashhh before sending out (sorry about the rushed "carpet-photos"!):

Since she has ferrets, I decided I wanted to crochet a ferret amigurumi:





I found a really cute pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ferrets but I made some changes to the pattern (leaving off the eyes and ears) to make the 'gurumi completely smooth and ferret-safe...crocheted using cotton yarn for safety and durability.

Next, I made a stretchy "bed" or giant "cuddle cup" for her fur babies; it was inspired by this item that I saw on her pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/150659550004276188/



I created the pattern myself: inside is fleece, outside is cotton. And I filled it with fleece scraps and swatches that the babies can cuddle with when they are inside Smiley

Lastly, I added a necklace I made using polymer clay and glass beads...I thought it went nicely with the colors of the other items, and would be something special for Leashhh:



Thanks for looking! Leashhh: hope your furbabies love their items Smiley
