TSM...between your AV and your tree in this latest package, you are going to be to blame for getting me addicted to button art! Wink

Thanks so much, everyone!  Button art has taken over as my fave craft currently, as is evidenced by my avatar and recent gifties to my partners Smiley

The lunchbag stands up like a basket, has a hard bottom, and is lined with that waterproof nylon fabric...kind-of like flag fabric, but stiffer.  The utensil roll has one of the 2 white napkins I included, they both came in the HUGE bags of fabric from the craigslist lady...as did the yard of yellow flannel I made the mini roll of 'paper' towels.  It's a 'starter' roll, only has 6 on it, as that was all the towels I could get out of the yard of flannel, and REFUSED to buy ANYTHING for this swap and keep myself in the spirit Smiley  On the utensil roll again, I had the plastic silverware in the kitchen and they fit perfectly in the slots, so did the short set of chopsticks.  It has a flap that folds over to keep the utensils in and Velcro closes down, then it rolls up and ties with a piece of bias tape around it. 

The dusting mitts were made from tracing one of the disposable ones I had and using fleece from a baby blanket for one, and a remnant of terrycloth to make the other.  I made a terry one for me as well...put a hole in it on accident between the hand and thumb parts Tongue

Bought 4 of those MASSIVE IKEA totes on a trip last year to that store, baby wipes were leftover from a pack my parents gave me (unsure why they had them, other than 'personal hygiene' purposes), had 2 of those patches so I shared the wealth, tea towel has been in my swap extras box and seemed appropriate to give on this swap.

The one thing I didn't make and wish I did was a wet bag to keep the paper towels in when they get used until they are washed.

The lunchbag design sounds great!  I was just thinking that I could use a couple of those...

I have to tell a secret.... I LOVE my lunchbag so much that I am using it as my purse!  I took it in to my mom's this morning when I was dropping off the little one and she had a FIT over it! The first thing her and my sister said was "OMG Where did you get your purse!" So I had to show them the utensil roll and they were sooooo jealous! Tee hee!! Thank you again TSM!! You TOTALLY ROCK!
