I know, isn't it all lovely? Now I'm self conscious about how my stuff is going to look. Seems as though wool is becoming a theme though (yes, that was a spoiler!).

Don't worry Courtney, I'm nervous too, probably because I don't know how to craft from wool yet so all you knitting and crocheting people seem like you have some kind of magical ability!

I came home from class today to an awesome and beautiful swap package!

Here is everything still all wrapped up!

An awesome pillow case with a betta fish on it! I love it! The fish is all shiny and pretty!

On the other side Jess put my name!

And she included some beautiful earrings and decorated bobby pins!

Please excuse the poor quality of my photos! I plan to add more(better) photos!

Thanks Jess! I love all of it! I didn't get it in these pictures but there was also a really pretty purple cord type thing...and I kinda wasn't sure what it was...Smiley I will include it when I add more pics.

Another awesome package! Cheesy

Was the fish stenciled or painted with fabric paints?  Just asking because I've yet to try either method!

I'm so glad you liked it Paige! The purple cord was just some purple cord I threw in in case you could use it for your own crafting some time. I must have mucked up the measurements of the pillow, very kind of you not to comment Wink Thanks for for all the fun I had crafting for you!

Lovestoexperiment, with the fish I drew a picture onto silk and ironed it onto the case with iron on adhesive then used fabric paint to outline it. I had no idea if it would work but it did thank goodness, I'm sure you wouldn't have any trouble with it.

And Courtney I'm certain you could make jewelry! It's just like yarn crafts but it's less knit one/purl one and more pink bead/white bead  Wink

I'm lucky last!

Now, I'm pretty sure Jess lives on the other side of the planet. That being said, this wait is killing me. Also, I'm concerned about how things will settle in the package.

Oh man, is this what swap anxiety feels like?
