I haven't gotten mine yet, and April hasn't posted pix of what I sent her yet, either... Sad

Since my package was received I'm going to post some pictures.



This is all the loot minus the "purchased" item, which was various kinds of beef jerky since my partner liked salty meats.



This is all of the loot again, but with the reversible side of the "Damnit" doll/pincushion showing.



This is an "instead" cup holder. An instead is a disposable vaginal cup, much like a diva/moon cup. This was repurposed from an old set of drapes I found at a rummage sale.



This is it opened, with an instead poking out. Smiley



This is a cloth pad/disposable pad/natural tampon/etc bag. It can even be carried as a small clutch purse during that week. Those in the know, will even see the red "period" on the outside.



This shows the inside of it. This was repurposed from an old sweater and I did the entire thing by hand.



This is what my grandmother would call a "goodie" bag. I used my hand carved stamp to put a nice fresh cupcake on the outside. Inside there were a few handmade cards by my friend Addie.



My favorite, the "Damnit" doll/pincushion. This is the "period week" side. Please note the little tampon on her hoodie.



This is the "Other 3 weeks out of the month" side.


I hope that 1boy1girl1kitty2 loved this stuff as much as I loved making it. Sadly, I still have not received my package yet and she sent well before I did. Sad

pom poms are fun, so i might just ad some! maybe button-on-style, for smoother washing -- this way i'll be practical & pom pom loving girl at the same time  Cheesy
