...I'm kind of in love with that beholder. Did you use a pattern? It's super cute!

I used this Edmund the Owl pattern (http://stitchesoffaith.blogspot.com/search/label/Edmund%20the%20Owl) for the body, and made up the eyestalks. If anyone is interested I can write out a pattern for the eyestalks. I think I remember how I did them....

I can take more detailed pictures of those areas, if it'd help you!

I'm so jealous over those bookends and that hoodie! Such great packages. The Eidic Memory Stick made me giggle and get weird looks from my roommates. =D

Unfortunately, the post office tells me that my package to QueenofThieves never made it out of central Virginia. =( I'm going to send her another package, but here are pics of what I sent her in the one that is now lost to oblivion. (Where do packages go when they die?)

D20 necklace and dice charm bracelet. The beads on the bottom of the dice charms spell out her character's name.



I used ceramic paint (safe to use on dishes and baked to be dishwasher safe) and painted a mug up for her. The handle had "+1 Cup of Drinking" down it. The image is the logo for the Gilded Song, a tavern in the town of Ravenport. Ravenport is a city in one of the campaigns I'm in. Underneath the tavern info, it has the notation "30% off ale for friends of the Baron." In our game, the Baron is a villian who at first hired us to do grunt work for him and had the habit of calling everyone "friend", even when he was undead and attacking us...over and over and over. It's an in-joke in our group that EVERYONE is the Baron in disguise...especial ly the Warforged. Also, what looks like a crack on one side of the mug is just a crease. It doesn't even go halfway through the ceramics.



Next I made glycerin soap with dice and miniatures suspended in it. The easiest mess I ever had to clean up in the kitchen! =D I also packaged and sent a bunch of bath bombs I made, which aren't pictured.




She asked for some fun DnD shirts to wear to sessions so I made a few. Most of the designs/ideas are from shirts I've seen around the interwebs. Otis is the name of her character's horse. Her character is a lawful good paladin.






I crocheted a dice bag, using ribbon with knots on the end and a d6 that slides along it to keep it closed. The bag is really stretchy so if she wanted to keep her dice in their plastic box and put that in the bag, it would fit. (just barely. lol)


And lastly, I'd made a Bag of Holding, using fellow Craftster HeartofMary's messenger bag tutorial. I adjusted it to make it bigger so that QueenofThieves could store her miniatures in there, and the pockets on the front were sized to have multiple slots for paintbrushes and soldering rods, etc.


=( It makes me so sad that the package was lost, but I'm going to work really hard to make the replacement package really really awesome.

That is very sad about the lost package. My partner's package for me got lost in my first swap (my very first!) and I have always wondered what happened to it... who has it now.... Sad

Yeah, I am very nerve-wracked about my package for this swap since I have not sent internationally before. Not having the USPS tracking is making me a little crazy!

I got my package from JadedJenn! It was incredibly exciting.



First, a gelatinous cube keychain and matching charm. The charm glows in the dark! I really love the little skull in the keychain.  Grin




A handy fabric dicetray! The dragon fabric is really pretty.



A robot fabric dice bag and green and gold dice! I cannot express how much I love this fabric, it's so cute! The dice are really pretty, too.




And finally, an incredibly awesome shadowrun pillow! The embroidery is amazing, and the color of the pillow is just really great. My roommates tried to steal it when they saw it.

This package was so amazing! Thanks, JadedJenn!
