Here are my goodies from Oath Keeper  Cheesy she totally spoiled me!!! She used my love of dragonflies, coffee, buttons, and altogether hippiness to make me some amazing things! Not to mention she sent super early  Smiley aaaaand, here they are:

A beautiful hoop inspired by one on my pinterest but personalized for me  Cheesy It has button flowers and dragonflies. Some button bracelets, a zebra bracelet, fun sunglasses and a jelly bracelet  Smiley



Next up a bright clay covered box decorated with delicate flowers and a dragonfly, a clay dragonfly pendant that is oh-so-shimmery and I love the colors! A teeny tiny java hoop, stamps, and a candle!



I tried not to take a hundred pictures with everything she sent me, but I couldn't resist a close-up of the box and dragonfly, they are so beautiful in person and I wish I could have captured the colors better



Oh, and that's not all! The large she sent just blows me away, a super hippy jacket with so many fun and colorful stitched designs


(sorry for the weird angle, this was the hardest item to photograph)

and a closeup of some stitching



Thank you Oath Keeper  Kiss You really outdid yourself! I can't wait to hang my new hoops and wear my new jacket  Cheesy

Some of the things I did really took me out of my comfort zone and wasn't sure how they would go over, so super glad you liked it all kartiana Smiley

Hey OathKeeper - PLEASE PLEASE PEAS - did you take photos of the process?  I'd love to make one of these for me?  Oh man is it way cool!  Those pockets are amazing.  And all of that embroidery.  It truly looks like a work of love.

I'm sorry Wise One, I didn't take pictures like that. I could tell you my process but I know it won't be helpful. But I guess I can tell you how it went for me.
1. Buy a coat in the right size.
2. Cut it apart like you want and go happy with the colors and patterns while it's in pieces.
3. Try to put it back together and have a mental break down.
4. Call a dear friend who knows how to sew right for help.
That was my process lol.

Oath - you crack me up!  Oh we'd be friends.  Similar process here with my stuff.  It's called 'just wing it and see what happens'   Roll Eyes  Love your coat my dear.
