Could you put a link to the chainswarm in the first page of the unicorn zombie apocalypse thread? I had a bit of a hard time finding this.

I put it in the original thread-in my first post.

Okay, I'm posting pics for bookstorebabe.
So here are the goodies I sent her.
WARNING: I have gone pic crazy.

Shakespeare Book Box


Close-Up of front (I was thrilled how this turned out.  It was my first real woodburning project)


Inside of Box

The Spot Bag (I was inspired by a similar bone at Globe gift grave)


Details of stitching on Spot Bag


A Midsummer Night's Dream Scarf (This scarf reminds me of the play so I had to make it though I worried it was not literal enough of a craft translation.)


How the scarf looks on


Neck Detail of Scarf


And finally, A book of The Complete Works of Shakespeare with Bookmarks

I really like that scarf! (and it's my favorite Shakespeare play!!!)

Do you have a pile of flesh for it?

The scarf is rather easy to make (mostly time consuming).
I was inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51065.0.

I used JoAnn Sensation Rainbow Classic, a bulky yarn, for the vine and leaves.  For the flowers, I used various colors of Babysoft, a sportweight yarn.  I spool-knitted the "vine" and crocheted the leaves and flowers.  The leaf pile of flesh and some of the flower patterns can be found on inspiration post.  I did use some different flower patterns that I found in books.  After all the elements were completed, I just laid out the leaves and flowers in a pleasing arrangement, and then sewed them onto the vine.

That's a pretty lame tut.  But really you can't go wrong.  You can use any colors you and flower/leaf patterns you like.
