I'm posting pics on behalf of jaami.
She recieved a while ago (no she didn't recieve this late
) but as some of you know, she's recently moved away from our lovely end of the globe and understandably, life has been too busy for her to post pics. I didn't take pics of all the items I sent, but here's a taste.
Firstly, a reverseable blue + white bag.
I was so excited to make this because sewing isn't something I do often (read maybe once a year) and I made this without a pattern. Also, without any visible stiching in or outside the bag.
Doing swaps really gets me trying new things. It's great!
Thanks Jaami for being a great partner
At the top of the bag there's two buttons/pins and a wetfelted flower pinned on.
And to give you an indication of size/dimentions of the bag, me showing off
Seeing as though we're both in love with music, Jaami and I both sent mix CD's. What she sent me was in a different vein to this so I hope she liked them as much as I liked the music I recieved.
Here's the three I sent (If you can't read the listing and you're interested, let me know)
Icelandic group: Mum (spelt with an accent over the u so it's said more like 'moom')
The 'mixmaster' CD with a mixmash of different genres
And a covers album. This one was the most fun to put together.
There's an orchestal version of a dysney song, Tori Amos covering Jimi Hendrix, a vocal quartet covering sting and a canadian folk group covering just to name a few
Other items I haven't a pic for, was a loosely-knitted longish scarf, a little echidna finger puppet, and I think that was it..
