Yay!  glad you like everything.  Smiley 

The notebook came with the flower cut-out, but I emptied out my button jar for red ones (which there were surprisingly few of) to do the button bit.  I've got a friend who's done that sort of thing to several bags, and at least one pair of her jeans, which I always thought was pretty cool.

That kitty's so cute!

(Is this your first Tootsie Pop?!)

yep Roll Eyes
I was quite surprised when I got to the chocolatey stuff..lol

Awesome.  Smiley

That's fun!

They come in all kinds of other flavors, too. Raspberry, grape, orange, strawberry, and chocolate (yep! chocolate lolly with chocolate inside) are the standard flavors, then there are all kinds of weird special edition ones.  I had a pack of tropical flavors once!  Pineapple was delicious!

thanks... Um, I actually kind of made it up as I went along.  It's basically 3 pieces (two sides and a strap that goes all the way around) and then ribbon binding around all the seams and edges.  And all the pieces are two layers of outside fabric with a stiffer lining between them.

Hooray, finally I am able to post pictures of the amazing blue package slingmomma sent me!  First of all, she made her box our of a cereal box!   Shocked  I just found that super impressive right off the bat and I'm going to remember that one!



Here's the purse she sent me, in the style that I requested.  Sorry for the crappy photo, I tried!  It even has a looong strap that I can fit over my shoulder, which is what I asked for.   Cheesy  I have already received numerous compliments on this baby!

Fabric close-up, it's gorgeous:







The cuuute wallet she sent me (which I also asked for).  Inside:



As you can see I had to put it to use almost immediately.   Grin





Pincushion!!  I have been craving one because I just started sewing!  She asked me for my favourite animals, and jellyfish was the first one.  I love it!!  I had to squeal when I opened it, my boyfriend thought I was losing it.



Matching needle book with jellyfish on the cover.  The little ribbons pop right off the front, and the "pages" are all multi-coloured felt.  Very soft and floppy.  I also didn't have one of those before, so I was very happy to receive it. 



Great medium-sized pouch with bright blue lining and little blue ribbon pull.  Slingmomma asked if I had a second favourite colour, and it was green, so she included some of that in the package - that was awesome because it killed me to choose between blue and green.   Grin



Beautiful silky covered notebook.  And inside, a little surprise for the beginner crocheter:



A pattern!

FINALLY, slingmomma sent me some yarn and beads to bulk up my baby stash:



How awesome is that??  She was a FABULOUS partner and I hope she likes everything I made as much as I loved all of this!
