kiki_eks, will you be giving a tute (or even a liky to a much bigger picture) on how to make that fantastic beaded fabric pink paisley necklace? It is the most rockin thing EVER. (I might be in the paisley swap right now and kind of crazy for paisley. whoa. that rhymes!) I think I can guess, but I would love to know more about what you did to make it so fantastic. Trial and error are our friends, but if you've already, um, erred? Well, I'd love to benefit from your wisdom!

I wish I could but koi made all of those items for me.  Grin I can try to get another photo of it and post a bit later. It is even more fantastic in person. I believe it is made out of silk.?.

Yes it is!, i took the idea from here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53433.0 but I made knots instead of metal beads!

Finally, I have pictures. Sorry it took so long!

I recieved my package from Carat Top and was so excited to open it! Everything was so amazing!

Here's a picture of everything together:


Here is a close up of the knitting roll (so I can store all those loose needles rolling around my house!) The inside was polka dot and the outside was flowers.


A close up of the darling flower pot decorated with all the different types of pink fabric she had:


A picture of the flower she made and spray bottle with a cheerleader on it!


The picture of the Pink Panther journal to store my crafty ideas!


And of course the bag! Made out of beautiful tweed fabric with a cute little cowboy boot button on the front! It was absolutely amazing and i'm in love with it. I had to take everything out of it to take a picture  Wink



I also got a pink ball of yarn to make my own knitting creation and a deck of playing cards; both something I always need!
Everything was so amazing! Thank you so much Carat Top  Smiley I was blessed with an amazing swap partner! I'm in Pink Heaven!  Cheesy

Wat a coincidence! I believe the same material was used in the bag that *k* made for me!  Cheesy

Back home and rested and so enjoying what I'm seeing. Deirdre, very cute bag and fabric. Lin, that 70's yarn flower is so intricate and pretty, I want one of those myself now. I especially like the old instructions that came with the box, very cute and 70's Smiley

Carat top has done wonders too and everything is so pretty and original looking, I like that decorated flower pot with various fabric pieces, did you hot glue them on there? How did you seal them for waterproofness? I might try that myself at home

My partner received so I can now post pictures of the items. She likes 50's style and animal prints so I dyed some pinks and made a matching stretchy top and skirt:

the skirt



and the yarn cubby, because she likes to knit and had it in her wists so I went for a funky beach shack look. There was also a small pink box of home-made chocolate hearts and some extra pink fabric which I didn't photograph:
