Hmmm...nothing here yet!
I am almost done with my stuff but I won't be sending out until next weekend.  I am actually excited to see how my own stuff turns out.

My tracking number says TAOJ got her package from me today!

She posted in the other thread that she is going to be busy with funeral and birthday stuff for the next few days, so I haven't heard from her yet to actually confirm that she got it...

BUT I have pictures I can post of the stuff I sent! I just want to make sure its okay before I do, from either TAOJ or Kish, since I'm not completely sure how picture posting etiquette with swaps works Smiley

I would say with all TAOJ has going on, she might not be able to respond to Pm's, but if she has received her goodies I say feel free to post pictures in the gallery. Smiley

Yay Pictures!!!

OK, first a little teaser/extreme close-up shot, just in case TAOJ gets all the way here without opening the package first, she has a chance to look away before spoiling the surprise:




The close-up was of a Hello Kitty dishcloth I knit for TAOJ, since she said she likes Hello Kitty. Hopefully the character shows up okay in the picture, its hard to photograph:




A wallet with cherry print. It's lined with lime green, and has two small pockets, and one larger zippered pocket. I thought I'd made peace with bias tape after the last apron I made, but apparently I was wrong. The bias tape is a little wonky, but for the sake of my sanity, and as a monument to my ongoing battle with bias tape, it stays a little wonky:




And this is a close-up of the button I made to close the wallet, using a phrase TAOJ suggested. I did it in illustrator and tried to make it match the fabric:




And the last small item is a set of buttons (badges, pins, whatever you call them!) There's two done in illustator, two done by hand with markers and gel pens, and one is fabric. The words on them are both things I thought up, and things my partner requested:




And finally the medium (large?) item - a skirt! TAOJ listed brown as her favourite colour, and said she liked retro fabrics too, and I thought the teddy bear print sort of had that feel. It's made from a free pattern from fitzpatterns.com, but I fudged the pattern to get the panel of contrasting fabric. It's a wrap skirt with a kangaroo pocket. I really hope it fits her, it's adjustable, but still, I am nervous!

The front:


The back:


So that's it! I hope when TAOJ is less busy with everything that she'll have a chance to post some action shots!

Wow, what a great package Smiley  I am sure it will cheer TAOJ up, and good timing for her birthday too.

Love the skirt and the washcloth-- did you make up your own pattern for it (if you don't mind me asking!)?

The dishcloth is based on the smallest chart here:
http://www.breienmetplezier.nl/Breipatronen/kitty.htm

I ignored the colour in the chart, just used it for texture, cut off one side of it, and bordered it in some seed stitch to make it a dishcloth... if that makes sense? (If not, tell me!)

And thanks for the compliments! I hope TAOJ likes it too Smiley
