Alright mine is ready!  Let me know if this isn't big enough to qualify as "big."  This is my first swap but I think so as it took a lot of effort to make the sofa pincushions and I added two other things too.



There's a blue hemp book/grocery tote, unlined but with French seams.
A small notebook made with a Vintage reprint postcard, heavy "resume" paper, and little surprises of pretty scrapbook paper and gold vellum inside.
And the best part, the sofa pincushion (more images can be seen in this thread.)  You can put pins in the arms, back or the main seat cushion.  The seat cushion comes out and you can keep small notions like buttons or safety pins in the bottom.

Yay!  I hope my swap partner likes this Smiley

Thank you all for your words of encouragement.  I'm glad you like it.

Craftydeb, you're right. It's going to be hard to decide what to claim.

I saw these on a couple of our fellow swappers' Wists lists (I looked at everyone's I could find) and I hope they are well received:

Reusable Shopping String Bags!


I added a little pocket to them for your cell, keys, wallet, shopping list, etc.


And I even started shopping for you!

Hmmm...what's in the bag?

A cupcake thingy!


Surprise!


Merry Christmas, everyone!

I finally finished my items today!  I swear I am the slowest knitter on the planet.  It took me forever to knit this scarf!   Shocked

What I have made for the swap is a grouping of items.  I made a scarf, a zippered pouch, a keychain, hair ponies and a bar of soap!  Plus, you also get the extra yarn from the skein I used for the scarf in case you would like to add fringe or make a hat/gloves etc to match. 

The scarf is soft acrylic yarn that you can machine wash and dry.  The colorway is called Prairie and you can see lots of color variations of olives greens, golden colors, dark blue, rusty reds, some darker purples and pale lavenders.  It really shines when you take it outside and let the sun hit it like I did in the photo.  As mentioned before you get the remainder of the skein already in a centerpull ball if you'd like to make a matching accessory.  The remainder has approximately 80 yards left.

There is a black satin pouch (it is black even though is looks a tad blue in the photo) lined with oriental fabric.  The zipper pull is a charm made by LaughingLark from another swap.  The keychain is a coordinating LaughingLark charm that I attached a keyring to.  There are 3 hair ponies with ouchless elastics of various fabrics.   And from the newest craft I learned to do, I have a bar of soap for you.  It has chocolate and coffee in it and it smells divine!  Smiley

This is going to be a fight to the death on swapping I think since everything is so great Smiley
