Yes, they are INFINITELY wist-worthy!!!  I was BLOWN away by my package from donniesgirl, my very own personal angel!!!  I have a few additional pics....

I hate full pics of me, but I have included them here to give you all an idea of just how cumbersome making clothes for me (especially that amazing patchwork one!) cause I am a BIG girl.

Please ignore my face - I thought the husband was only shotting from the chest down, so I wasnt looking as happy as the clothes make me!



and a close-up



and the AMAZING patchwork skirt - check out the sheer SIZE of this thing!


(in addition to my size, let's overlook my hair in these pictures - i wore a headband all day and i promise, it looked cuter in!  Cheesy)

details (just a couple)...





In addition to just being altogether awesome, the skirt was done as reminiscent of the scene in The Muppet Movie where they paint Fozzie's car (my favorite scene!!)

Then there were some iron-on transfers...



and



There were also return address labels (which Im not showing cause I dont know know how to black out my address and thats just a little too public, even for me!) but they're adorable and have AWESOME pictures and include my favorite quotes along the bottoms!!!

SERIOUSLY this was just an unbelievable package and I wish every swapper without a package gets an angel like mine!!  Thanks SO much donniesgirl!!!!!

Well, being a plus size myself (& tall, with a big head lol), I think everyone should get cute crafts no matter what size they are.   And I love to sew, so that couldn't have worked out better if I tried.  Cheesy  That patchwork skirt took a little longer than I expected, but I'm kind of a geek about gathering - I wanted to make sure it didn't all lump up on one side.  So that's why I kept saying "I'm sending"..."no wait I'm really sending"..."no really, I'm sending this time.  Wink  I had fun making the package, so I hope you enjoy!

That patchwork skirt is amazing! Is it iron-on transfer for the muppets on there or printed fabric?

Iron on transfer.  Although I had quite a bit of fun with the Kermit stencil & if I'd had more time, I would've stenciled.  Except maybe the bicycle scene.  Wink  I'm not that good a stenciler lol.

rockymygypsysoul, I am so glad you got a great angel.  Let me know if the lost package ever gets to you.  I am still upset that somewhere out there a disgruntled postal employee hijacked muppet stuff.  Anyway, cheers to you!
