ZOMG I love those t-shirts! The dragon and steampunk designs are way freaking cool. Seriously, SilverWing, if it's okay with Inara, can I commission you to make me one of the Steampunk ones sometime? I need one.

I forgot to mention the coolest part about the steampunk wings - they're on the back of the shirt, not the front!

^^  I'm sooooo glad you liked everything!  That's the first time I've tried freezer paper stencils, and I'm totally in love with the outcome.  I cut a few lines on the wings way to close together and didn't notice when the iron caught them, so the first time the feathers all muddled together so I had to re-do it.  At least I learn fast, lol.  I'm thinking I'm going to do a hoodie with the wings for myself soon if I can find a suitable hoodie.  And I'm totally commissionable, SciFunk!  We can do a personal swap if you want.

Oh!  Inara, I forgot to mention, I haven't had a chance to really test out how these do in the wash.  They should be fine, as much fabric medium as I used, and I heat set them as per bottle's instructions, but I'd still probably wash them inside out on gentle the first time to see how it does.

Mindreader!  I was planning to message you when I got home from work to ask about washing instructions.

 I finally got home to receive my package and I love it! DaisyTattoo did an awesome job. here are the pics:



Everything altogether



Spiral journal for my book theme



A cute set of coasters for my map theme, already put to good use this morning with our coffee mugs



A beautiful needle roll with fall colors to go with the autumn tree theme I have been needing one forever and this one is perfect! Also already in use




A fascinator for my 20s fashion theme! I had to hide this from my cat right away, her eyes got so big when she saw it. Yeah, this is an awkward self timer photo of me modeling it.




An Amelie stenciled shirt for my Amelie theme! This has got to be the coolest stencil ever, great job!



Thank you for everything, this swap was so fun  Smiley

Gorgeous package!  Another fabulous stencilled tee!  I must learn how to cut a stencil because the ones I have seen look so awesome!

I'm glad you liked everything!  Cheesy I was worried the hair fascinator would fall apart on the way there so I put the leftover feathers and flowers in the box in case you needed to fix it.

And my bf asked me (after I sent of course) why I used a green shirt. I chose that one because it is the color of the background the stencil came from off of the movie. The stencil actually turned out better than I had expected. I'm glad it fits you so good!

I really am overjoyed you like the knitting needle roll because that was probably my biggest sewing adventure lol.

I know you said you like history books, thus the quotes on the journal and the time thingy's.

The coasters I tried a couple of ways to make and these ones turned out the best. I hope they work well Smiley

This really has been my favorite swap so far! Thanks for being a great partner bethanyjoyce  Kiss

^^  I recieved from Inara on Saturday, but I've only  just now had a chance to get pictures of all the awesomeness!  First, a group shot:





Theme 1: Nana (anime) - totally awesome t-shirt from my favorite anime series!  I love it!



Theme 2: seven of spades - etched dog tag

Theme 3: World of Warcraft (horde) - an ever useful quest log book (in group photo) and two pairs of fabulous earrings!

Theme 4: Wist surprise - a stamping kit - she made me two adorable stamps, one with a wing for my Craftster username, and one with a lemon for my etsy name!  Plus inks and a cute box to hold everything!

Theme 5: The Cheshire Cat - the coolest thing ever, hand knit socks!  I can't knit and those who can, amaze me.  Plus these are extra fantastic, when you look at an angle, you can see a cat!  The pics don't do them justice at all, but you can somewhat see the cat and his long tail running up the sock and curling.  They're incredible!  And they're super comfy!


I love everything!  Thank you so much Inara!  And I have to ask, where did you get the tee from for the Nana shirt?  It's the softest thing ever, it's amazing!
