Redstar13 has been having some problems uploading images, so I'll upload the shots I made pre-sending!

This is the entire contents of the package:

A crocheted charger pocket, a reusable shopping bag that folds into a key chain pouch, a crocheted flower made from the scraps, and a very traditional Dutch card that included some loose T's  Lips sealed


Better detail on the charger pocket, front is worked in crocodile stitch and a couple of rows of single crochet, the back is made in double crochet. I had to be a bit inventive to figure out how to make the hole, but I managed after a couple of attempts. I hate weaving in ends, so if I can use a technique to avoid it, I will!


This is the best picture I managed to take of the shopping bag... Really bad quality, sorry for that, but I think it gets the idea across. I bought the reusable bag itself, because I spent a huge amount of time on the charger pocket (way more time than I had expected!) and because the right materials for these fold up bags are 1/ hard too find 2/ very expensive when compared to how much you pay in the store for one of the bags themselves.

Since redstar really likes skulls, I sketched out a (not in any way anatomically correct Tongue) skull on the side of the big bag and of the pouch and then embroidered them on. It's the most basic stitch ever and quite an easy design, but I felt it works and redstar has assured me she likes the bag. That's what matters, so I'll stop thinking I should have tried something more elaborate Smiley

No closer picture of the flower though, totally forgot that one. I wasn't sure if it would look better as a brooch or on a headband, or maybe even attached in the upper-right corner of the charger pocket (though I felt it would distract from the crocodile stitch there) so I left redstar to decide for herself what to do with it Smiley

i am glad you like it.  i have sooo many peacock feathers left over from our wedding (5 years ago) that i just had to use them for this!  i am particularly fond of peacock body plumes - the grey fluffy ones with just a hint of the crazy fabulous blues on the tips.  they make me think of magic, and a dreamcatcher needs a little magic!

working on some more non-traditional ones, now, if anyone is interested Smiley

I've fallen in love with idea of a delicate doily in the middle of a dreamcatcher, as well as loving original type ones.  Smiley The one you made Jo is beautiful!
