Thanks everyone for your kind comments about my tiny magnet people!  You are more than welcome to copy any of them if you like!  I'm also planning to make a bandit, a king, and maybe some others later...

Calabaza - Those macaron-style coin purses are fantastic!  Macaron designs are all the rage in Japan lately, and I can think of several friends who would loooooove to have one of those! Smiley

gozer - Your bathroom and the art in it look great!  I can understand why you hesitated; it's scary to make a big change in the house like that.  But your bravery certainly paid off! Way to go!

Ludi - Absolutely beautiful embroidered initials. I like how you honored one of your favorite books. Smiley

Cryssoleil - Haha, that is so cool! I would never have thought of making something like that!  The pins holding it up are a great touch. Smiley  I've never done felting before either but it looks tough! I'm impressed that you did such a great job with no experience!  Also, yum, so many pickles!  I want soooome... (And you're reminding me that I have some raspberries in the freezer I was planning to make into jam - I should get on that!)

FreakieGeekie - Great hat!  I like the shade of pink; it's very tasteful.  And that's a good idea for how to make a hat! I've actually never successfully knitted a hat; I tried to make one on circular needles just once and failed spectacularly, so perhaps I should try your method instead!

BadWolf314 - Oh, what a cute necklace!! Somehow the style and the bottle cap just seem to go really well together.  And thanks for helping out Team Cat, even if it went against your grain a little - I think we're getting pretty solidly beat by Team Dog so far!  And I love all the different mana stuff you've been making.  It's amazing the variety you can get out of those symbols, and they always come out so clear!

I've been crafting a ton lately and was eager to work on this project (my partner and I share so many interests!), so I've already finished and sent mine out!  Yay!

Thanks, guys!  I'm looking forward to having a concert bag made of all those patches, but I get the feeling that's a looong ways off.  Tongue

bunny1kenobi - Great shirt!  I agree that the O's look awesome that way; nice that the time-saver is stylish as well!!

craftADDchick - That tote bag is wonderful!  My grandma and all my aunts on my dad's side have Boston terriers and have always had them, and they would absolutely flip over that bag!  Way to repurpose a cute graphic! Smiley

Aaaand, here are some companions for my tiny crusader.  I actually think I'll make more later just for fun; I'm really enjoying how these silly little guys are turning out, and I already have ideas/designs for several more planned out!

Prompt:  July: Wee Bit

Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Wee Wizard and Princess Magnets
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description:
I loved my tiny knight, so here are some more tiny people!  I used the same basic bullet-like body shape, but this time made a wizard and a princess!  These are all even smaller than my usual animal magnets, so they feel very tiny indeed to me!

And here they are with their knight:

Thanks for the clarification, LovelyMiss!  I think I already have an idea in mind... Smiley

gozer - That is super cool!  I'm jealous! ;P

And congrats, Ludi and Smeddley!  I'm so happy when I see people from this thread get featured! Smiley

Prompt: July - Geography: Osaka

Project Name: Blue and Black Mugendai TM Patches
Brief Description:
I absolutely adore the city and people of Osaka.  The culture there is fabulous, as is the food, the comedy, and the number of fun things to do!   And the pop group I've been mentioning, KanJani8, is from Osaka.  The "Kan" part of their name is even short for "Kansai," which is the region including Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe.  Tons of their songs have Osaka in the title and lyrics in the Osaka dialect, and even after moving to Tokyo they've kept their accents and their Osaka style.  So as I work on my KanJani8 TM patch concert bag project, every patch represents Osaka to me!  Here are two more, blue for flambouyant Shota, and black for jokester Kimi-kun. (Actually the blue patch is even more Osaka style - bright colors and gaudy fashions and anything with lam on it are quite popular there!)

By the way, is the card meant to be an all-purpose card (and blank on the inside) that our partner can use to send to someone else?  Or should it be a personalized card specifically for the partner, and written out to them?

Awesome, my partner even shares some fandom a with me that I hadn't mentioned! So many ideas to choose from!

FreakieGeekie - Oooh, she got even more crafty! Very stylish as well. Smiley

bunny1kenobi - That looks AMAZING.  And since it's made in a skillet, I might even be able to make it when I get back to Japan!  (My oven there is not the best for baking.)  I'll definitely save that recipe - thanks!

Here's another project I just finished - it's actually for a private trade with Inselaeffchen so I'll hide the picture behind a link.  Wink
