There are a few people I haven't heard from.  I'll be sending out personal PMs tomorrow, but please everyone check the list at the beginning of this thread to make sure I've recorded who's sent/received correctly!

And the packages still look fantastic!  Cheesy
mine is correct but my partner said she had to go out of town and left it so she will be sending monday just to let you know because her name is in black.

I am glad you liked it.
The coloured wool I dyed myself, I did plan to crochet it all up into a huge cowl, however my arthritis got the better of me and after 5 hours I have to stop, that was over 3 days not all at once.....
I loved the colours though.

I am glad you liked it all.

I am really liking the idea of all these paper/fabric towels and make up pads.

I am thinking of making some wash clothes for the kitchen the same way.....

love the lunch bag.... what is it made of?

It's like wanna be oil cloth. It's fabric with clear contact paper ironed on to it so it can be wiped down. I like how it turned out.

I am glad you like everything you were fun to craft for  Smiley

That is soooo awesome! Just regular ol' contact paper?

I received my package from SAHMama yesterday.  My sister is bringing me a camera cord so I can upload the pictures tonight.  I'm at my dad's house to "watch" the superbowl and I left my cord at home.  Tongue


Yes, clear contact paper. You place it on top of the fabric you want water proof then put another layer of fabric on top to protect it from direct contact from the iron and melt it. I use it to make wipe-able place mats as well.

i think this is the most awesome snippet i have seen on craftster yet! oilcoth is soo expensive near me, and i can think of some lovely FQ's i want to use now!!! thankyou thankyou! Cheesy

I'm glad I could help  Grin. I used the contact paper melted fabric to line my re-usable snack bags I made so you could just wipe out the inside. Goooood stuff!
