So I received last Friday from weedflower!!!! here is all the great stuff:
She sent me 2 shirts, fabric, ingredients to make a yummy dish, a magant, bag, bangles, and newspapers... all from MALAYSIA!!! Its all so neat, thanks so much weedflower! I just hope you get my package soon
Back in July, I got a bunch of awesome vintage patterns from a swapper. One that caught my eye was a 1971 wrap dress because it looked so darn cute and easy. Here is a pictures of the pattern:
Anyways, I had gotten the fabric at Walmart quite some time ago for $1 a yard, and found it to be somewhat retro .. perfect for such a pattern! It was a pretty easy sew, especially for my first time, that just included 2 darts, and a bunch of machine stiching. The only thing is that it sort of came out a little too big on the top, and I don't know anything about taking a garment in. Here it is, though!
Weeeee, here are pictures of the quite awesome stuff that kmac sent me!
All of the purses together! From left to right: Gourd purse, large zebra print tote, felted purse, string purse... the only problem is, I have no idea which one to use first! I practically have one for every day of the week
A close up of the detailing on the gourd (this is the back of the purse.. I didn't get a good picture of the front)
kmac even sent me a dollar to start the purse off!
ALL of the loot (except for the coasters which I've already used ) including: tealight candles, candle holder, crane earrings, silly magnets, a finger puppet, a pineapple bracelet, an owl (gourd?) necklace, pencils, a "latte" necklace, lavander body wash, foot roller, hand salve, tin, perfume holder, bubbles, lotion, compact, and a 'transform' pendant.. Whew!

kmac, you were such a wonderful swapper and you really did spoil me more than ever! Thank you so much for it all! (All of my friends are jealous of the awesome purses and loot )
I received a WONDERFUL "thank-you" package from Eremira for being her swap angel!!!
(sorry for the sideways picture!) She sent me a lovely card, beaded bookmark, friendship bracelet, crocheted belt, pasta necklace, and crocheted ladybug pin! I love it all so much, Eremira, and thank you for putting together something for me!!!
By the way, the belt fits perfectly! It's crazy!!!
That's great stuff you sent out yellowblanket!!! It looks like you worked your butt off
I just received my package from devilninny today, and boy, was I spoiled!!! She sent me tons of stationary (the postage labels aren't pictured due to my address being on them), ice cream fabric, a decorated trinket tin, ice cream stuffie, yummy smelling caramel ice cream bathwash, earrings, stickers, keyring, barrettes, and a make-your-own gummy ice cream kit! Here are the pictures:
