theballandskein PM'd me a while back to say that she didn't have pictures yet because Alora had already made off with all of the stuff I sent, so I'm finally getting around to posting the ones I took.  You can still post action shots if you want to.

Here's all of it together:

I made a skully fabric zippered pouch for school supplies or whatever, a safety pin fabric (which I loved, I bought extra to make something for me!) French message board, a little monster stuffie keychain, and a bleach stencilled AC/DC "Thunderstruck" t-shirt.  I also included some quick extras, some Emily the Strange magnets and stickers and Happy Bunny stickers.

The t-shirt:

I went back and forth so many times on how I was going to do this!  At first I was going to embroider something, but I had just finished a huge embroidery project and was kind of burnt out on it, and I hate embroidering on knits anyway, so I decided to try out bleach/freezer paper stencilling.  I'm really happy with it, I only wish I hadn't destroyed the stencil when I took it off (so much cutting).

The zippered pouch, also my first.  I used a really great and easy tutorial, I'll try to find it again if anyone is interested.


And the monster stuffie keychain and message board:

The monster turned out a little wonky, I have trouble sewing curves on the sewing machine, and when I originally tried hand sewing, I realized it would take me forever!!  But I think it gives him a little character.

I hear that Alora loved it, and I had so much fun with everything.  It really inspired me to try a lot of new techniques that I will definitely be using again.

Since smittenheart's poor Ryan has had to wait so long, here's a teaser pic of the wrapped goodies which are being sent out tomorrow...



And yes, there may very well be very very general hints written on each package! Smiley

Smiley  The secret to being so quick is that I live alone, so I can craft for quite a while without interruption if I want to.
