hoo hoo hoo! i am so pleased i get to post a gallery! i received my package form sea of stars yesterday, oh i am so excited to share it with you, but then not really have to share them!

so firstly, go check out this link: http://www.bouncingsouls.com/ that is important because it sets the mood.

then get a load of this!


it's totally embroidered on there! the case is made of corduroy (purr purr purr) and the embroidery is made of felt. you just can't believe how remarkably rockin it is!

and as if that weren't great enough, it gets better!

hopeless romantic is the title track from one of the bouncing souls records, and it's one of my favorite tracks! Really!

here they are together:


and a super felt wallet, with a baseball on it!
I love baseball in september, it's just magic. (except i am very nervous right now for the AL east) i am going to put a note book and mini pen in there and i'll always have something to write on.

i am so excited i am yammering! i am so pleased that i can put these on my couch, so that when people come over i can say a friend of mine made these rockin pillow cases!

post yours when you get them!

I just happened to pass through and had to comment.  Love the Souls.  Could you do a close up pic?  That looks phenomenal and I am so jealous!

Wow!  Those look great!
Mine were sent out and should be received by my partner this week.... I have to admit I already feel inferior to the work I've seen!

i'm just so happy you like them! plus, you knew it had to do with the bouncing souls. I don't know much about them at all, so Hopeless Romantic just seemed to fit the logo. I'm glad it worked out so well!

I can't wait to recieve mine! I just got a new bed so I have a need for new decorations.  Smiley

and here's a close up of the felt applique before it was sewn onto the case:

Thanks for the close up pics.  I'm even more impressed based on the fact that you're not too familiar with them.  Excellent choices.  You've totally inspired me. Grin

I got my package from ttchica78. I love them. I have to take some pictures, and I will post them. I got three small pillows, with a Harry Potter/astrology theme. They are too cute. I hope she likes hers.

please remember everyone to pm me when you receive so i can update your partners feed back!

also , please note that there has been a tiny glitch  with the feedback form, and it hass been double posted. i am goingto carry on using the feed back dated 10/30/05. i have a message in to the admin regarding this, but i'm still waiting to hear the result.

i am waiting to hear from two participants regarding their shipment. there are also some participants who's tracking number don't produce packages. this is why i need to know when you've received.

Please send me a message so i know where we stand.

the rock part and borders of the hearts are embroidered. the strings on th guitar are well strings of thicker thread, i think. the rest is stencilled/ painted on.

Whoops haven't checked in in a while. The guitar is stenciled, the hearts are freehanded and the guitar strings and guitar cord are embroidered on with a shiny silver thread. I got the design from some stencil site. I forget which one at the moment, but I added the hearts to the design. I was actually gonna stencil the whole thing but I thought the strings would probably bleed into each other and that it needed some more punch.

two participants and i crafted for the mass shelter for homeless veterans and the pine street inn. i hope that they will post here so everyone can see what they made, but this is what i sent to the PSI.


these were purchased cases, that i used bandana material to embelish. I wanted to use something that was relatively suitable for either boys or girls, grown up or child because i wasn't sure who would be the ultimate end user.

these are the patches i sprinkled all over them

the pine street inn is a wonderfully successful place for homeless people in boston to go and get back on their feet and get good second start. the mass shelter for Homeless veterans is the same sort of establishment, but it caters to a more specific group of people, one that i think is frequently overlooked, despite their heroism.

i can't find a website for the MSHV, but here's the PSI: www.pinestreetinn.o rg
