FAB package! What a great start to the gallery.

I love the sewing cards, and I wish I would have thought to ask for hankies!

seeing as though MareMare cant find her camera cord, she asked me to post some pictures of the goodies I sent her..... so here goes..... and there is a lot of pictures....


all of it together


re-use-able papertowels...... the stand has flannel around it so that when you roll them the first one will stick as well......and a wetbag to hang on the oven


swiffer covers, and the SWIFFER......and swiffer duster covers


a SQUARE bottom shopping bag.... and reusable produce bags


and a set of 12 pads........with liners....they can be used with or without the liners.......and 3 wet bags.....2 travel bags and one for the bathroom....... this was the first time I had made pads.... and i am really happy with the way they turned out.......

more pictures ....... different views














a fabric covered notepad..... (and you can replace the notepad)


I also sent some extra fabric, which I used to pad the otherstuff with.... I just didnt take pictures of it.

Hopefully MareMare finds her camera cord and can post some of her pictures and comments as well.... but untill then I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures I had taken

Wow, OGD, that is an awesome package!  I love the reusable paper towels, and the swiffer covers!  The bag is gorgeous, too, and all those cloth pads - soooooo awesome. I love the fabric you used!

Wow - is anyone else feeling a bit of swap anxiety now with two such amazing packages?

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

I'm watching this gallery for great ideas, so far I love the swiffer covers.  I originally said a loud resounding ewwww to the fabric pads, but after some reading I may actually give that one a try.  Any tips on making them?

Fabric pads are awesome!  They're so much prettier than the ones you can buy at the store!

I'm in favor of any option that removes "adhesive" from anyplace down there.  Youch!
