I guess with such a large number of swappers this round it's not such a surprise to have flakers. But definitely a disappointment since the last rounds have been so flaker free. I'm enjoying seeing what everyone has made. finally I have a day off so i can post pics in the gallery. sigh. I'm really missing my weekends! I'm glad that we got the flaked-on swappers angels. unfortunately right now I don't have enough time to angel or I would have offered... =(
Woohoo!!! I received from mariskalovescrafts yesterday. I got so much cute stuff! Well I have to run off to work now (bleh) but will post pics ASAP! Thank you so much Mariska, I really love my monster!!!!
When I saw psmommy's potholder that fishie made, I couldn't help but laugh- since I made a lilypad potholder too! I love hers best, as I can't crochet at all, and I absolutely love the crocheted lilyflower!
The goldfish bag I made for meganlorraine was fun- I used the slouchy pleated bag tutorial, with vintage fabrics for the outside and the lining, and then used printable fabric for the goldfish and attached them with fusible web. One thing I wish I could have done was zigzag applique the fishies to the bag but as I'm not sure if my very old, inherited sewing machine can do that (and I am learning to sew on my own, not ever having had home ec) I didn't want to try to experiment with that on Meganlorraine's bag for the first time. I felt that the rounded shape of the bag was perfectly suited to a goldfish bowl!
Megan said that she loved blue herons and unfortunately the only thing I could think of for her was the shrinkies... =( but I'm thrilled that she loves everything so much. I figured the purse was a nice and practical swap item to send her!
this was tons of fun! can't wait to see the other stuff ppl post!!
oh, and psmommy, I got the froggie fabric at my local joann's so take a look next time you go!
