SewPixie, beautiful skirt!  The pattern has delicious flexibility to it (i.e. wear to work and for fun).

Thanks snacker. Love that fabric and actually forgotten that i had it until I came across a bag from a thifting expedition last fall. I have some left so i'm hoping I can make a skirt for me now.

For the skirt I used the 6-gore skirt tutorial in the clothing section (I think from juniper13). The pj pants are from a McCall's pattern I believe. It makes great pj pants with lots of room, great if you hike your leg up high to your chest when you sleep.

The hoodie is a Burda magazine pattern from last month's issue.

The knitting bag is a large Jordy style with a zipper inserted into each lining side. Then the lining was interlined with the light purple fabric. I didn't want to do the same kind of zipper pockets as my other bags and was inspired by a bag I bought from TLC Canvas back in college.

I received today from 1craftgrl!  Thank goodness I was alone when I opened the package, because I totally did a happy dance - I absolutely love what she sent me!  I got a big tote/project bag and a crochet hook roll-case.  The bag is white with blue dots, and orange and red flowers.  The lining and the outside scallops are pale blue.  On the front and back, those scallops are actually pockets, and there's a zippered pocket inside.  The sewing on the bag is perfect.  I really appreciate the effort that went into it.  The outside of the hook roll is white with pink, yellow and green flowers, and the inside is a salmon-pink.  I love those colors together.  It's so cute!  The first pic shows the colors more accurately.

I love love love them both!  Thank you 1craftgrl!!

Thanks!  I tried to make it more of an action shot of the bag, but it kinda turned into a shot of my (sweet) ass.  I love my belt.  It's rubber, and it's studded with bottle caps and has a seatbelt buckle closure.  I teach preschool, and my kids love to count the bottlecaps and buckle and unbuckle the seatbelt.

Love the scallops on that bag! What a neat design. And the colors on that hook roll...awesome

I received from craftykate and well let's just say this is what you will see when looking up spoiled in the dictionary:

Socks!!!!!! Real live actual socks...two pair! And two cute bags, a felted soap, and a soft soft caplet. Something I can use with my pins!

And now a shot of the caplet that makes it look like I am all chest  Roll Eyes


And now I am going to run down to the postbox and see if lasandri's is in there. Glee! And here I thought I would have a crummy evening after just wanting to cry in spon class from wanting it to just be over.

THANK YOU!!!!
