Looks like I'm the first to post. So here's the great stuff sent to me from kitkat_pro.

The wrapping paper on the package made me feel like I was getting a Christmas present.Cheesy

The first thing I found was beautiful handmade card.

Next was this jar with decoupaged fabric and ricrac trim.

There are little strips of paper inside with different questions. I think I'll to answer them all and get some insight about myself.Smiley

Then there was this. The fabric had a surprise wrapped inside.

A calender frame (at least that's what I'm calling it)!

At first I thought kitkat_pro had just given some jersey fabric to help protect the frame. Then I realized there were two strategically placed holes in it...

It's a sleeveless jacket. I love jackets that are longer in the back than in the front. I tried to get a decent photo, but it's hard to take pictures of oneself.Tongue
And here's a group shot. Please ignore the mess in the background.

Thanks kitkat_pro!

Oh I'm so glad you like it all, and that the wrap fits Cheesy The frame can be used as a white board calendar, and the jar can be used as journal promps if you want. I really had fun crafting for you, and trying new things Cheesy

Kitkat_pro is having trouble finding her camera cord, so I'm posting what I sent her. It was already nightfall when I finished so the pictures are a little dark.Tongue

Since I was sending late, I decided to make a couple of extra items to make up for it. Here's a group shot.

Kitkat_pro said that she would like a teapot cozy. So I used this red fabric with black vines and made my own quilted fabric to make one.

Then I made a matching mug rug.

She also wanted something crafted for her daughter. So I made two skirts. The first is a basic elastic rectangle skirt. The stars are made of glitter.

Here's a closeup of the fabric.

Then I decided that I wanted to try my hand at making a twirly skirt. I used scraps of pink and purple since her daughter likes those colors.

Since I don't really make kid's clothes, I was afraid that the skirts wouldn't fit. Even with good measurements, when I make clothes for kids, the outcome can be wonky.Tongue But kitkat_pro said that her daughter snagged them pretty quick when they were delivered and has worn both of them already, so I guess I did ok.Smiley
