i received a simply stunning package from savage pixie yesterday.
it was filled to the brim with lots of goodies that are so my taste, it's scary. savage pixie did an outstanding job stalking me and really got me
opening up this package was a beautiful experience; i was oohing and ahhing, and giggling and smiling and awwing and making comments to no one in particular, and generally looking like a crazy person. it was sublime.
here's the whole shebang, all wrapped up in pretty paper, PLUS a skein of recycled yarn that i've been coveting!!
each parcel had a small note w/ explanation wrapped up inside. i love that!
package #1: 5 luggage tags and 2 passport holders
each and every fabric savage pixie chose for me was perfect and honestly just. my. taste. she even was on to the fact that my favorite color combo is yellow & grey! i love ALL of them so much! and look how expertly they're sewn - they look completely professional.
close-up of the bigger of the 2 passport holders - this one's got space for a few extras too. i am so in love with the fabrics - i even have the dandelion one on my wist!
package #2: (this was my favorite note)
as if this beautiful wristlet with birdie fabric (closeup!) wasn't enough, there were more goodies inside!
extra goodies contained within:
2 pretty headbands and a little panda pouch!
and here's that awesome dandelion fabric again, this time appearing as the lining of the pouch
not that i have to mention it anymore at this point - as i'm sure the pictures serve as proof enough - but have you all noticed savage pixie's dope ass sewing skills?!?! not a thread out of place, not a messy seam in sight, and everything exquisitely constructed....i'm still in awe.
next was this reusable bag with the saying from my wists, but with a sugaree twist: (sorry if it's a little blurry; i think the bag was still swinging a bit when i snapped the photo - i guess i couldn't contain my excitement long enough to wait for it to stop)
and it's lined in this fabric that matches the trees on the outside!
again, impeccable sewing skills.
but if you think the sewing skills are good, wait till you see this:
this. amazing. embroidery. ripped right out of my wists.
savage pixie said embroidery is her strong point. that's an understatement. this is beautiful and flawless. and i adore it to the ends of the earth!
this is going right up on my craft room wall so i can be inspired to create something just as beautious every time i'm in there.
and she even covered the back in felt, because as i've come to learn, she is oh so very profesh. i've never seen an embroidery with the back covered before.
lastly, package #5:
contained a wonderful dress with some very-sugaree embroidery on it.
check it out:
sorry i don't have an action shot of it yet; it needs some very minor alterations and then i can take a few pics of myself in it, which i promise to post as soon as i adjust it!
savage pixie, i can't even express how amazed i am at your generosity, crafting skills, and kick ass stalker capabilities. i'm so happy and grateful to have had you as my secret stalker. you sent me a wonderful, thoughtful, unbelievably wonderful package. thank you so much; truly.
