I thought you might want to put Hugo on a tote bag or wall hanging or something as a panel, so sent the dog fabric for that  Wink

Maybe a wall hanging/panel thinghy .. I don't really use tote bags so if I made one it'll probably live the rest of its life at the back of my drawer or something Tongue

and I can not believe you took a pic of the label with my dorky list on it, LOL! I never know what to say on those things!

Heehee. I thought it was cute! I'm always at a loss at what to write too - so you're not alone! Grin

have fun and let me know what you do with that pic of Hugo - I tried doing the coloring thing for the first time ever with his collar and ears - if you wash it dry it flat and there is something about you aren't supposed to iron it unless you put a paper towel on top of the coloring so if any of it comes off it won't destroy your iron...

Will do. And fact noted .. My poor iron has gone through quite a lot ever since I started sewing .. Once, I accidentally got all the sticky iron-on interfacing stuff on it (don't even ask how I managed to do it. I still don't know LOL) and spent a good few hours cleaning it all off Roll Eyes

Thanks again! And I'm antsy about you getting your stuff .. Does your postman deliver on Saturdays? Grin

I thought I'd post the items I made and collected for americangothic as she is a busy newlywed with an exciting new job that keeps her away from civilization much of the week.  She has received them and said she loved everything, so I hope you enjoy the pics too!

She suggested a pincushion as one of her items, and as I had made a few before I thought it might be fun to do a larger one...

The black fabric is machine-embroidered with mutli-colored thread, and then I embellished here and there with some hand-stitching and sequins.

Inside; some vintage floss from my stash and some new notions...


I confess that my embroidery level is quite beginner, so I felt the pincushion wasn't quite enough and included some vintage embroidered linens from my collection. I'm not sure if this was meant as a tablecloth, but it folds so nicely into an envelope that I used it to hold the handkerchiefs...


Assorted linens crafted long ago by tiny-fingered women with far more patience and skill than myself...   Tongue


And finally, a serendipitous thrift store find -I thought it would be perfectly kitschy for a newlywed!  Grin (and I saved the pic since I'm tempted to make one myself!)


I had fun with this swap and am drooling over all the talent in the gallery!
