Ok so I am currently out of town visiting family and I received an awesome package from our wonderful organizer Audania1. It was so cool opening this swap in front of my family and explaining what I have been actually doing when I talk about craftster
Audania and I have so much in common, it really was a perfect match!
The first thing I saw was this gorgeous purse. This was perfect timing because I only brought my wallet with me and had planned on getting a purse here because I didn't realize how much I need to carry around on this visit.....so BAM, I've got an awesome purse to run the Austin roads with! Audania actually customized it as an embroidery bag (which I will totally use it as when I get home to my usual purse) that will fit a 12" hoop, scissors, needle, threads, and anything else I want to stuff in there...which will be a lot!
I'm usually really good at taking great pics, but with all the craziness during the day here I only get late night time alone so pleeeaaasseee Audania, if you have better pics put them up. I'm pretty sure this one is blurry, it's hard to see on my phone and they are uploading weird for some reason
The left side has patches for Winterfel, Jaqen H'Ghar, and Tyrion. The stitching is so delicate and all different fonts, so cool. Super funny that we both made Tyrion patches from the same material!!
The center has patches for Daenerys, Ygritte and Jon, and the Lanister motto. There is also a horse button for Khal Drogo, looooove
The right side has patches for Syrio, Arya's Needle, and 7 Hells!
The inside of the purse has embroidery accessory pockets and is lined with a really neat brown fabric (the same as the strap), it gives it a comfy feel
The back is made of this super awesome brown scaly leather-ish material, representing Daenery's dragons. I know it's a super awesome material because I totally have this material too, and I absolutely looooove it!! Yup, twinsies
Next, I got an awesome Arya hoop, I can't wait to hang this!
Finally, I got a wine cork trivet...yeeeee! It represents Tyrion of course
. I laughed when Audania mentioned that she didn't drink all the wine to make this trivet....but I totally wouldn't have judged, I love me some wine. Even better....the center cork is a moscato, which is one if my favs
Ya, too bad we live on opposite sides of the states, we could have been dangerous together! You were really easy to craft for too, I love these swaps...ready for round two! Thanks for hosting Audania, and bigger thanks for making me such an awesome package!
