Jordan an I received from Gingerberrycc and her SO the other day! Jordan was so surprised and happy with his package.

Whats first?


A Clerks Jay Inaction figure!! How cool! Jordan laughing as he reads the funny things written on the front and back of the box


Next was this ADORABLE crochet penguin! Jordan and I call each other penguin, so it was perfect.... silly boys....


Gingerberrycc's SO drew this super awesome picture of the guys from clerks! It's so good! I'm stoked to go get it a frame :-)


And last but not least, gingerberrycc made a really cool roll/pouch for Jordan to put his healing stones in :-) she even included some really cool stones!!


The whole shabang


Thank you both so so much! this was such a great swap and I was so happy to see Jordan enjoy his own swap package, he absolutely loves everything! :-)

Ok where did the superman fabric come from???!!!!! I MUST find it for the bf. He took one look and when OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!

I actually got it from ebay!! I just tried looking and couldn't find it, but this is pretty similar and from the same store I purchased the black one from.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-Man-Superman-DC-Comics-Action-Licensed-Fabric-Yd-/150544232926?pt=US_Fabric&hash=item230d22b1de

I was stuck deciding between two fabrics, so I asked my friend whos BF is also a comic book nerd/artist and she picked that one so I went with it, glad I made a good choice! lol

I see my boyfriend isn't the only one who mocks eating everything that he likes. That's good to know.

Hey So today I just recieved a great package from Mod35Tbabe! My hubby loves it and had a really good laugh too!

So first off we have this great plushie


Then we have this lovely embroidered doortag -
That says G.O.A.T.S. Geeks Of All Trade(s) This is what my husband and his friends call themselves... sorry for the mediocre photo ( This is so going on the door to our office)


Then we have TWO amazing magnets. I told her that he liked internet memes, such as the Narwhal and Honey Badger.. He laughed SO HARD when he saw these. He totally loves them.



His nickname is Pez, so she got him some awesome Star Wars Pez Candies!


And my favourite and his is this amazing lunch bag! You can write on it! With Chalk! It's a chalkboard lunch bag! AMAZING!

Oh my gosh, I'm putting chalkboard fabric on my wishlist, lol.  Did you use a leather needle with it or did a standard work ok?

I'm so glad he liked it all Mezcrafts - I almost didn't want to send it because I ended up really enjoying Narwhals and the Honey Badger is possibly the coolest animal I've *ever* heard of, and I live in Australia and everyone knows what dangerous animals live here!
The lunch bag was the last minute thing - I had bought the fabric and then forgot what I had planned for it so did something else, then checked the pinterest just before I sent because I felt what I was sending wasn't enough, found the bag and thought it'd finish the parcel off nicely.

Oh my gosh, I'm putting chalkboard fabric on my wishlist, lol.  Did you use a leather needle with it or did a standard work ok?

I just used a denim needle and didn't go as fast as I normally would, but my machine was fine with it. Also the one I got is non-fray so I trimmed it with pinking shears on the seams and across the opening at the top, it looked a bit neater that way I thought. I think it cost about $15/m so it's not outrageously expensive to make something smallish.

Whops, I'd posted this in the wrong section the other day, ROFL.

Ok, my awesome partner has received but the camera is MIA so here are what photos I was able to find on my end  Grin
Yes, those are angry birds but they are angry bird cat toys with bells! Those things were the devil to sew!I got the pattern at http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2009/01/make-it-for-you.html If anyone else wants to give it a go I left them hollow except for a bell and the sides were sewn with stiff stuff under the felt to hold up against kitty playtime. The scarf below it is a bamboo that I hand dyed & then crocheted into a more manly neckwarmer complete with hand made polymer clay buttons.

This of course is a blending of 3 things my partners SO liked Nikki Sixx, Penguins, and Coffee. And in a flash of inspiration the Nikki Sixx Penguin Mug Rug/potholder was born, yeeeeaaaaaah I was doing the potholder swap at the same time so it's lined with the heat resist batting, lol.

And my last photo is based on racing which was also a theme that was liked but I didn't go with his fav racers (long story) so I made this quilted pillow case based on the The Jelly Roll 1,600 Quilt Race at youtube  Smiley I made the quilt top and cut out a pillowcase.
