Great bag! Is it modeled after the Sainsbury's bags? I love them!!

bookmarking and patiently awaiting the tute. Thanks!

QB

The bag that I modeled it after is from Hannaford's...but it'd probably the same bag with a different logo!

And, thanks for being so patient, everyone! As soon as I switch over the laundry, I will start working on the tutorial. So, I should have it posted in a couple of hours!

If you liked The Princess Bride, be sure to read The Silent Gondaliers!  It's awesome!  I love the green and rose crocheted bag -- just lovely -- and the bird in flight -- lovely again~! 

The Silent Gondaliers will be added to my list...as soon as I look up who wrote it Wink Thanks for the suggestion!

ETA: And, since I just found out it's written by William Goldman, I have decided to buy it instead of borrowing from the library. Grin

Thanks, Tanzie! I had a lot of fun making the tin and the items to put inside. My original plan for the tin was to stamp and decoupage the outside. But, it turns out that I don't have the stamp I thought I had. So, I emptied a round tin out and the panda face was born. I kept picking it up and chuckling because I loved it so much Wink

 I had almost all of the items for the inside made, but I needed something else. Then, I randomly came across (while looking for some craft supplies) a card with pandas on it. It was perfect for the notepad. I had a hard time with the shrinky dinks. I couldn't get them to shrink right in the toaster oven. I ended up using my heat gun, which worked perfectly, and I was even able to salvage the first batch that I thought I had ruined (except for the one I broke).

I had so much fun with this! I even asked this guy I work with, who is constantly munching on Altoids, to save me all of his empty tins. I'm definitely making more themed tins to give as gifts. Too fun!

Thanks so much for organizing, kishcrafts and RiRa!

addicted2knitting- Great package! I really like how Librarylass coordinated the colors for all of your stuff. Same thing with the package that you got from and sent to Stroudrose, vinnie451. I love color coordinated stuff (which is why I love my package so much- mom2blu color-coordinated it all!). The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies, and I was thoroughly delighted when I read the book. I've never heard of Cloud Atlas but I might give it a go.

I love the bags that you ladies received, and the bookcover is awesome! I love the fabrics that were used to line both of the bags, too. Such attention to detail! Nicely done to you all!

I was wondering who would be the first ones done! I should have guessed Wink

pjherbert and Sorcha, both of them look great! pj- love the colors! And Sorcha, what brand/color of yarn is that? I usually don't like too many variegateds, but the blue and brown looks really nice!

My partner has had her tin for a few days, so I thought I'd post a pic of what I sent. I chose her theme "Pandas."



I painted the tin and then added plastic animal eyes and an animal nose. I lined the inside of the bottom with some flocked scrapbooking paper. I made her a set of panda stitch markers (8 in all, 2 of each pictured), carved a little panda stamp, stamped some tags, and made a little notebook.

The March square looks like an excellent complement to the January square! Nice choice Horse Power!

lucy ban pelt, that is such an adorable tin! I love that painting on the outside, and the lace is just the epitome of everything Victorian. The little kitty on the cushion is totally cute, too! Nice job ravenwcatz!

Thanks folks! I did the embroidery with the help of my mom and her machine Wink

I'll try to work on the tutorial this weekend and maybe have something posted by Sunday night, if not sooner!
