I did a personal swap with the lovely Melesse in September Smiley  She requested a couple of pantas, and in return, she sent me a surprise!!  Check out the gorgeous crocheted bags.  The blue bag is a drawstring pouch, while the colourful bobble stitch number is a zippered pouch!  To top it off, she also fed my fabric addiction Shocked  I love the lush burgundy velvet and gold brocade pieces!  Melesse, thanks for the wonderful personal swap experience  Kiss

Oooo! Melesse, your work is beautiful!!

The blue pouch is so dainty and the bobble pouch is just amazing!  Is the zipper sewn in by hand or machine?  Is the pouch lined?

Loves2experiment, you'd best guard those pouches!  Things that lovely could get,er, liberated.  Wink

You're welcome, loves2! and Thank YOU for your patience with me. Wink

The bobble pouch is unlined, since I used cotton yarn and the inside was very tight and smooth. The zipper is hand sewn on, and not my best work. (I hate hand sewing with the fire of a million burning nuns.)

Both pouches are from One Skein. I did try the third bag in the set but it looked horrible so it was abandoned.

Melesse, the bags are definitely worth waiting for Wink  The nubby texture on the surface of the bobble zippered pouch is awesome Smiley

Thanks for the advice, Fidget *makes mental note to hide the pouches when she visits*

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Koi and I did a personal swap that started in August...crafted thru September...and now we are receiving (or at least I have).  

The swap was for random goodies.  Don't you just want random crafty goods to show up on your door?  I do!

This is amazing (and is her first of this kind--the small pillow kind):


Funky hat:


Felty necklace (I love this!).  I have been totally inspired!


A crazy bracelet with vintage buttons and beads (I couldn't get a good picture!):
