I made this today, because I happen to have A LOT of fleece. Smiley

He is made with anti-pill and polar fleece. He sports a bit of white boa on his head and his mouth is a pocket for hiding things!!

Thank you Cheesy I love retro colour tones and playful hues like green purple, blue orange and red purple. Just tried another recycling project, though not really glass crafts but used glass paints on a used cookie jar. As glass paints are translucent in nature, it gives an interesting see-through look on plastic jar Grin

Hey folks, I wanted to share what I made for mrraawwr.  Since she received a while back I figured it would be ok to go ahead and post for her.  I hope you don't mind mrraawwr!

I sent her a painted wooden plaque and some polymer clay piranha plant earrings that she had pinned.

In this swap well be crafting a mug rug.  I'd thought about making it a seasonal or holiday themed mug rug swap, but decided to leave that up to each participant to specify in their Questionnaire for their partner.

  • Mug rugs can vary in size and shape but should be roughly around 5 x 8.
  • Any techniques can be usedpatchwork, embroidered, knit, etc. but keep in mind that the rug should be able to absorb a bit of moisture and protect surfaces from warm drinks.
  • Extras are optional, but please discuss this with your swap partner so that no one feels bad for not sending "enough".
  • There is a 2 partner option for those who want 2 partners Smiley
  • We have a 3 week crafting time.
  • Please post to the discussion thread or PM your organizer at least once each week.
  • Have fun!!

Noodlebug AWESOME bookmarks!  I LOVE the stamping! Smiley

Tiamatfire Wow!  Your ginger-peach jam looks and sounds amazing!  And you did a fabulous job on the baby food.  I really love the sounds of the mixes you came up with!  I LOVE the yarn you used for your hat.  It's beautiful!

Another one from me:

S.P.E.W.: N/A
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Not So Big Pumpkins
Project Description: I was trying to help Hagrid out in the pumpkin patch, but I got the wandwork backwards or something, because instead of engorging the pumpkins, I accidentally SHRANK them!!The silver lining is that they'll be fabbo in my daughter's faerie garden!

I got my package from Ludi today!!! And it's AWESOME! She sent wicked cool extras...

And Ludi did any awesome job on my hoop too! I couldn't have asked for a better interpretation. Photos can't do it justice but here's a couple anyway.

I prefer glow-in-the-dark to white, so I sent some along for her to use. Here is an "enhanced" glow pic.

Thanks SO much Ludi. You are one of my favorite swap partners ever!

I received the most amazing angeled shrine from Perfectly Bohemian.  I love it so much.  She chose my woodland creatures theme.



I absolutely love it and couldn't be happier!
