When i made the bag for islandmum i found the pattern on Ravelry..........It is made using a collection of any yarn knotted together to leave the strings & they are crocheted together with a black yarn to give the colours some sort of solid base.
I spent days with it hung in my living room deciding whether or not to line with the strings in or out. Undecided  I lined it with two parts to it & a pocket........my first time at lining!
Anyhow, i'd decided to chicken out & line the strings in.........BUT! .............hubbie convinced me that it looked better with the strings out........it looks better in real life though Wink Wink

I recieved from Ariethine so here are my goodies!



She sent a super cute bag full of pocket goodness and a cool keyfob thing so my keys won't get lost, matching wallet, two cute zipper pouches, and a bunch of other goodies. Everything is very cute and very well made.  Thank you, Ariethine!














Also, here's some pics of what I sent Ariethine.  She's been busy busy:



She wanted a gothic lolita purse with lots of pockets and zipper close, so I tried to fit all of that without going overboard on the frills. There are four outside pockets and six inside, two zippered. I also put a loop inside to clip her keys to.  I also made a matching wallet and coin/jewelry pouch that she'd wisted.















The bag became something of a monster to finish because I had some time issues, but I had been pleased with the way everything turned out. Ah, well. Sad

Sad I'm sorry you didn't receive any of my messages past that I received!! And I'm sorry it's taken so long to get pics! All of your items are very useful! And I've been using them every day. I love the purse, and my mom agrees with me that it's like a cute little tuxedo shirt. The coin purse is amazingly effective, (because I have this MASSIVE amount of change.)

I'll get action shots tomorrow of them. Sad I have to go back to the doctors again, so I'll have the bf take some. Sad

I received today from ktlady! It was a great package... here is a group picture.



First, there's a lunch bag and inside was a lunch roll and napkins! I have wanted one like this so much! I take my lunch to work pretty much every day and can't wait to pull out this now.  Everyone is already jealous of all of my craftiness and all the craftiness I receive.  Its so great.  ktlady was in the sweatshop swap and made napkins, which I didn't get and was jealous of them so I'm glad I got some! Smiley




Then, there's a messenger bag that is blue canvas and this awesome blue geometric pattern that is so great.  Plus, she put star trek logo on the front, and that's always perfect with me.


inside flap


Inside the messenger bag was this bag and I think its laptop sleeve, but its a little too small for my netbook.  I'm sure I'll find something to use it for though.

Also was this great owl journal and list maker.  I love making lists.


Plus, ktlady sent me a box of candy from Love Abounds on etsy and it was SO GOOD.  It was this dark chocolate covered peanut brittle candy and I left it at work and ate a little bit at a time and didn't let my husband have ANY.  It was so good.

So great! thanks!
