13201  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Crafted Cushion Cover Swap 2 Gallery on: May 17, 2012 06:55:22 PM
I would like to put in my order for one in green, please! Cheesy

Finally got a nice day to take pictures...yeah yeah...we needed the rain, but it was getting tiresome!

My lovely pillow is in use and will be admired by all who sit on my couch!  Mellybelly81 was my partner...my Aussie partner!  I was thrilled because my dream trip is to go to Australia in a few years!  She sent me a couple of wonderful postcards to tempt me even more! Cheesy

And,now , MY CUSHION COVER! She knew I loved scrappy, and that I am a softy for personal stories...the fabrics came from a quilt she had made for her adorable baby son and from her grandma!



Look at the cute fabrics!  My favorite is the little blue floral...so vintage-looking!


Finally, the soft back..and I learned a new way to do a closure--it is a flap type that I will have to try in my next cover!  Also, the edges are zig-zagged giving it a nice finish.


Thank you for a fun swap project that I will enjoy every day!  See ya in the craftalong, Mel...ha ha what project number is this one? Wink

oh...those images sure do bring back lots of memories....what a wonderful collage...very cool that her theme fit you perfectly!  Are we up to guessing two people now?  This is fun!

I am so jealous of the people that have mastered clay!  Pretty scary and pretty neat at the same time! Very nice job! 

I received from my partner missmelmarie and was blown away by her talent and how she took the story of my being lost in the woods when I was a child and made me a very personal matchbox!

The first thing I saw was the huge black raven or vulture...I am afraid of black birds...this one is particularly ugly in a wicked way...then the scary tree with a face...very wicked...


The back shows an even better view of the bird on his perch...


And this is my favorite view...a venus fly trap monster plant (aren't all plants in the forest at night child eating ones?)...it is ready to eat the little girl (ME!)...but look, there is a lovely purple passion plant protecting me! Smiley


Thanks so much Mel!  I also love the glittery blue (makes me happy!) and the cute leaf on the top of the pull!  What a fun swap!

My matchbox is front and center on my shelf so I can see it daily...reminding me that I can always find my way with the help of my wonderful friends!

I wish I had better camera skills to show off the little details...if you have better pics, please post...if not, I will just have to enjoy my little matchbox by myself!

I admire your bravery in just plunging in and making your clothing as you feel...it gives it a very much scrappy look (I guess gibbous should be used!)...the florals are particularly romantic and beautiful...where do you find these pieces?

I love sun,  moon and star themed art!  Such lovely contrast and the moon is so shiny!

I also love salty and sweet cookies...those look so good and not burnt! (my cookies always get burned because I forget about them... )

The rainbow cake looks interesting...is it cooked in the jar like that?

oh thanks for the info...if you use the finest sandpaper over most sticky types of sealants, it seems to get rid of the sticky...try it on the back or something...I use that trick when I do any art work that requires mod podge, clear srpay paint, gloss medium, etc.  I might have to spray one of my old cases blue...I can't seem to find any the right color!

I am ready to go...got a few things in the works, a lot of things to think about, and a tiny bit of things that I hope I can pull off (trying new things since my partner has seen it all Cheesy)....

Will do my questionnaire tonight!

Ever have that moment when the envelope leaves your hand and you wish you could snatch it back?

I had to use freezer paper to protect the piece and then I enclosed a card within a card...I hope I did not make the envelope too fat or else there won't be enough postage...grrr..secret partner...please please let me know if you get hit with postage due!  I will definitely make it up to you...(I know I am stressing, but I really want my envelope to arive safely overseas soon!)
