Ladies we have a gallery.  Here are the fabulous items that I received from janneypie today!  Sorry I forgot to edit I did this will home for lunch today.


Group shot!


Cute little version of an amy butler looking purse. It is fully lined and I love the material she used. Possibly use to be a placemat? or hand towel?


This is a cute little sachet filled with tea, and rice that can be heated in the microwave for some me time.



I think this is a little to close of the owl pin cushion.  Jennypie wisted me and did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for the great items. I would have to say my favorite is the owl pin cushion, although I really like them all. I am so into owls right now.  Hoot Hoot Thanks jennypie !!!!!

I think the purse is made of a placemat (I've seen that pattern at my Dollar Tree). Such cute stuff!!

We do not have those placemats but that is what I thought it was to heavy for a hand towel.  Thanks for the info!

ohhh sorry i forgot to include what each is made of! DOH!

the purse is made of placemats you got it right! the lining is a soft tshirt. the owl is a mix of baby clothing and a felt spring banner. and the sachet is rice and tea, with the left over material from the baby outfit and felt.

i am glad you like it!

Thanks it was super fun to make. I used a necklace and pony tail holder for the trim.  I broke the necklace apart and sewed the beads on the pockets added the flower from the hair tie back to the middle of the beading.

Wow, great stuff so far!  (I'm feeling a little anxiety now ...  Tongue )  I love the felt mail center - it is SO creative.  I have the felt cut circles but I had no clue what I wanted to do with them.  Great job!
