i received an awesome package from Averia on Friday! (who totally went overboard too after calling me out on it... pfft!)

first up some embroidered Gilmore Girls mug rugs

next are TWO tote bags with pockets on the front! one with my favorite GG quote and the other with my favorite comic detective team, Nick & Nora Charles (plus their dog Asta)

and finally my favorite items! a Toothless hoopla & kindle case/bag!
these are so well done, the detail is phenomenal!

thanks so much, Averia!
i will treasure everything  Grin

22  Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 6 (signups end 10/17, send by 11/17) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by noelle on: October 16, 2015 06:50:20 PM
well, i'm not quite sure how this works, coming so late to the party... but i'm thinking 3 & 3.

i can definitely make some animal pyramids (these are the ones i made my sister last year, but i could do different animals, too. sorry for the blurry phone pic.)

and then i'm torn between a felt version of this santa face...

...and some sets of these cute cardstock ornaments (i stole this image from craftster ages ago, but i couldn't tell you who from)

I opened my box from puzzled-penguin! check out the goods!

my favorite shop tee!

a patronus tote bag

lovely embroidered Fred bookmark & Hagrid needlebook...

...to go with a pincushion shaped like Hagrid's hut!
I'll try to give you guys the panorama here

a lot of hard work went into everything in my package, and I am thrilled with it. the shirt fits great, I'll use the bag all the time, and i adore the embroidery! thanks so much, puzzled-penguin, especially for being patient with my opening so late!

24  Dalek Mini Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: September 09, 2015 02:59:20 PM
made this for my partner's daughter in the Doctor Who Season 9 Swap!
i drafted my own pattern from her waist & hip measurements, and pegged the bottom a little.

but first i had to decide how to break up the busyness of the fabric... so i whipped these up in Illustrator and then sent a poll around for opinions  Cheesy

here's the inside for good measure. it is nice having a serger. you can sort of see the back darts and invisible zipper in this picture.
i doubled up the inset strips for opacity.

man, everything is great so far!
and i've got more to add, as i just received from darkangelwingz  Smiley

she made me two covered notebooks, one is the tardis and the other is my favorite monster, the weeping angel...

she also made 5 double-sided bookmarks...

AND a decoupaged 10th doctor frame!

it's all awesome.
thanks, darkangelwingz!

thanks, bobbiemay!

awesome job, rockingbearranch!! all those details, i love the embroidery on her corset and the colors of her outfit. i might have to put pirate on my list next year...

i also received today, from my partner pinkmichk. she made me an 11th Doctor & an Edwardian girl!
she can be the Doctor's travelling companion, since we know how he gets when he's alone.

here's a better view of the Fez:

i love how you used the ribbing to give her a corseted waist! super clever.
now, her skirt & bustle... is that a pant leg?

they are so cute! thanks, pinkmichk!

27  Mary Poppins Sock Monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noelle on: July 24, 2015 07:02:36 PM
this is Monkey Poppins, who was made for the Sock Monkey Swap Rd 9

sans coat, with bowtie and "buttons" from the scrapbooking section
props to my mom for the blush suggestion!

all the accessories: carpet bag, daisy hat, parrot-head umbrella & hand-knotted scarf (that's not a typo)

i had grand plans of making a working umbrella but ran out of time/gumption  Smiley
the base is a hat pin, with polymer-clay parrot head, painted with acrylics.

boot closeup:

her little bun:

coat exterior & lining:

i also included this picture in the package, as my swap partner is a Doctor Who fan as well.

well, my camera is officially kaput. i managed to get one group shot before it gave up and stopped focusing.

bobbiemay sent an amazing Wordgirl (her costume is even zippered up the back), plus a sock monkey mug, sock monkey pin set, and magnetic hair toy. she wrapped everything in an old pattern tissue, which i had to check out too! my guess is... diaper bag?

please post your own pictures if you have them, bobbiemay! sorry i can't do your creation photographic justice at the moment.

this was made for the Sock Monkey Swap R6.
my partner requested an elephant (i've done monkeys before, but this was a nice challenge)  Smiley

his cut-away jacket is made from scrap taffeta and velveteen, with a satin lining:
