Do you need to use those certain beads?  Or do all beads melt?

I use pony beads http://www.guildcraftinc.com/images/products/full/403-100%20Pony%20Beads.jpg
And multi facet beads http://www.thisandthat4you.com/Qstore/P__1123175540.html

I didn't use pony beads for this piece, but they melt wonderfully.  Smiley

If you look closely, you can see that his eyes are round & retained their shape.  Small beads (mini pony beads and seed beads) don't seem to EVER melt, so I only use them for details and decorations.

ChloeisCrazy ROCKS!  In return for an embroidered Altoids tin and some other goodies I made for her, she crafted for my 15 y/o niece who has cancer.  Swapping with ChloeisCrazy was a great experience and she's so creative!  All this goodness will delight my niece.  Thank you!!

Baroo?


Monster with a mouthfull of goodies


Froggie journal with felt locker magnets (love the little fly-snack the frog caught!)


Great handmade felt envelope that had a sweet letter inside and now hold the wonderful assortment of stickers, bracelets, pens, pencils, gum and a cute strawberry eraser that ChloeisCrazy sent


Trademark ChloeisCrazy Monster RAWR!  (that I love!!)


I love this bag!!  It's hard to believe this is the first one ChloeisCrazy has made.  Thank you again!!! <3

yay, thanks for posting up pics Fidget!!!

And yes!! It was my first bag haha, I was pretty pleased with how it turned out too!! I also had a little help from Teapotdnky, she showed me an easy way how to line it and also how to get all the fur to fluff back out around the seams!!

Thanks again for swapping with me Fidget! I LOVE my package from you ( so does Abby and my boyfriend ( who btw found the tiny scissors!!) )

I've been so behind in posting pics of my awesome swap goodies...my bad...so I am getting caught up!

The first is the most awesome tote I rec'd in a personal trade with Madmatigan79!  I'm telling you this bag is awesome...and she included a little pouch too!  The pic just doesn't do them justice!




Second is a biker chick necklace that I rec'd in a personal swap with jaye.  I have inadvertently dislocated some of the chains but it is an easy fix...She filled the bill when I requested a Biker Chick necklace and she used her awesome imagination and came up this this beauty...and in my requested colors of orange and black:



Thanks to all....I am one happy swapper!

I did this great swap with iampoison. She sent me varathane and freezer paper that I couldn't get in Sweden and I sent European sweets (Kinder eggs and other stuff). I never used freezer paper before, but I realised that it's great for stencils, so I'll post a t-shirt that I stenciled with the paper as well. (You won't recognise the guy. He's a Swedish TV show host.)

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.
