What a great haul! I wanted to make something like that hanging organizer, but I couldn't really figure out how. Great job!

I spoke with Ruinate and she has received. But poor thing has been incredibly busy. I finally remembered to photo the items before sending, so she said it was cool to just go ahead and post them.

My "medium" item was a tote to carry journal articles to and fro. Its pretty simple, it only has pockets for pencils and highlighters on the side. It was my first time using piping so I was pretty excited.




I've also seen a lot of cool notebook covers around and thought they were lovely. I made the pattern up for this one and quilted it so I suppose it could even double as a pillow hah.



Reversible coffee/tea mug covers. I also found these work well on beer.



I'm glad you liked it Ruinate. This was a fun swap, and definitely brought down my stress level.

Those look great! I can totally imagine carrying that notebook around and then taking a nap on it. I do a lot of head-on-the-desk napping and this would come in handy!

I was interrupted in the middle of my last comment, so here's the rest:

I have been wanting to learn how to do applique, and a coffee sleeve would be an excellent first project, especially with an abstract design. Thanks for the great idea.

I also like the bag. The design is really nice and sleek, not big and awkward like a lot of school bags. Good if you aren't hauling a lot of books. I did piping once before, four years ago, and since then I immediately reject any pattern that includes piping. I commend you.

Great notebook cover! That pattern is amazingly perfect!

I received from Amber yesterday!! It's funny...I left work early to come home and finalize my picks for phd programs and as soon as I got here the mailman came to the house to get my signature for the package...perfect timing  Grin

The group shot - a notbook made from the binding off an old book (LOVE this idea), cute keyboard earrings, a lovely handmade card, invitations for my "I finished my thesis party" and a little jar for my coffee! Amber said it's common in Canada for people to carry their coffee around in mason jars, since their almost leak proof and a good way to use old jars...I loved it!





Btw - the most amazing tasting chocolate covered coffee beans were included in the jar  Grin I actually never drink coffee because I can't stand the taste of it...but I tried one of these last night and not only do they give you enough energy to bounce off the walls for hours, but they were insanely delicious!! I love everything thank you so much amber!!

the piping looks fabulous, rangerbeth!  i really like the shape and size of that bag. and the notebook cover/folio is adorable and such a great idea, i'm inspired to make me one! i also found that my coffee cozies are excellent on beer!!

the keyboard earrings are so unique, Amber & wildeheart!  They're really a cool idea, and i've never thought to use a mason jar for my coffee!!
