Everything is so cute so far
I'm so excited to see mine... Sadly though I've had between 12-14 inches of snow for the last week and my mail hasn't been making it to my house... I'm hoping it makes it here soon though!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

Pinupmommy received my package a few days ago, so I'll take the liberty of posting pictures. Here's what I sent. Click pictures to make them bigger.


A throw pillow--I made an applique by printing a picture of Jack out on printable fabric in black and white, then I painted and embroidered all the details. The pillow itself is white twill with hand painted black stripes.


A tote bag--Another applique, this time a sketch of the bat boy from the movie (permanent marker on fabric), collaged with hand painted striped fabric, ribbon and distressed white fabric, sewn onto a tote I made with gorgeous black swirly cotton and more hand painted stripes for the handles. Sadly the pictures really don't do it justice.



A Jack and Sally painting on a wooden plaque, with a ribbon hanger on the back. I don't have a great picture of this one unfortunately. Paintings are hard to photograph.


A Jack head stuffie pillow for her young daughter, pretty straightforward. Made with felt.


One of my favorites--a movie inspired stocking. I almost kept this one for myself. My own pattern, made with white cotton and the same swirly black fabric used in the tote bag (hard to see the pattern in the picture, but it's there). The back is black felt.


Last but not least, a printed fabric ornament.


I also sent her a handmade card which I forgot to photograph. I made a popup card featuring the monster wreath from the movie.

Her package arrived yesterday. Here is what she sent me.



A CD case, a wooden jar, a plastic container and a tin all decorated with Jack's face in puff paint, plus a pumpkin barrette (the plastic pumpkin broke off) and a marble magnet.

Great stuff everybody! I just got a message that sweetly_sedated got the items I sent her as well, I'm glad. Unfortunately the pictures I took of the items are on a different computer to which I don't have access to at the moment, or else I would have posted the pictures.

I am almost done with your package! It has taken longer than I anticipated, because I had to plan, shop and craft all over again, after I had already finished a whole package. But I absolutely do not mind crafting for you, you have been a great partner and I only wish I could make my hands go faster!!!
