Skellerz and I have both gotten our packages, and I am sooo happy! First, here is the awesome package I got from her.
A wonderful knit shopping bag that is sturdy, but stretches really far. It is in awesome colors, too. New fave shopping bag! I also got armwarmers that fit me perfectly. I mean PERFECT. I'm glad it's still cold on and off here, so I can wear them without looking too dorky. Although I will wear them a bit this summer, too. Number three is a wonderful headband (that I need an action shot of). It is in a super pretty blue, and I will be wearing it to work a lot. I also need to get a better picture of the details in the headband. I don't know what the pattern is called, but it is so pretty. The extras are a knitted dish scrubber and 2 zines she made. Overall, a VERY sweet package, I am thrilled.
Now what I made for her. First, a rug out of an old wool sweater and fabric that was saved from the incineration pile of a clothing factory. I hoped it would help keep her warm at her new dorm this fall. And the cover comes off so it can be washed without felting the lining.
Cloth pads, pantyliners and a vinyl bag. All out of stash fabric. First time making them, so I hope they work okay...
Here's the whole package with a thingy for picking up hot bowls out of the microwave, a few dorm-friendly recipies and a lavender and rice filled eye pillow.
Proof positive that swapping rocks! Seriously, when she gets feedback, I am voting for "awesome!"
