Melesse--is that pinstripe fabric?  I have tons of corporate suits I no longer need--I would love to cut them up and make purses like that!!

The green purse is very lovely--I only saw it at my crappy monitor at work but now that I am home, WOW!!



I love that pinstripe fabric too!  Thanks for the compliment on the purse I made for Rain!  Grin

I got my bag a few days ago. I like it.

I got a cool messenger bag, a mousepad, this bag that is for electronic stuff that wipes off fingerprints, and a neat bracelet-making kit.
I thought my brother commandeered the electronics pouch, but I found it in my sister's room with a dinosaur in it, so I guess it's a dinosaur pouch.

This is what the bracelet kit made. It's really cool; the colors remind me of starburst candies.

The colors don't look quite that neon IRL, but it's sort of close.
I hope DayTripper likes what I sent him ^_^

That's a really cool bag!  The bracelet you made from the kit is WAY cute!  This has been such a great swap!

Has everyone sent yet?  Or close to it?  Redheadmenace - could we maybe get an update on how it's going?  I'm just nosy, don't mind me!LOL

I know that my partner hasn't sent yet, but she's been pretty sick.  I haven't heard from her in the last few days and hope she's doing well.

Of course when I finally get my picture ready to post, craftster goes down.  Tongue

I recieved from Lostlipgloss last week! She sent me a lovely tote and 2 pieces of great fabric!



How cute! I've been using the tote for my newfound craft master -- crochet.

I got my HUGE tote from prettyandpetite over the weekend! I wasn't home so it was a nice surprise waiting for me.
This is the bag, covered in pretty light teal flowers with light blue fabric lining the inside:

This I tried showing how big it is- my iBook is 12 inches and the bag is at least 18 inches wide. I can carry a small army with me if I wanted Wink

Inside was a jewel studded duct tape wallet

3 different kinds of British candy- it was hard not to eat them all before pictures!

And some London playing cards


Thanks so much Hannah, I love it! Thanks for being a great partner  Grin

EDIT: Oh my God....The strawberries and cream candy is awesome!!! I must ration these otherwise they will all be gone today

I'm glad it's ok :-) And I'm glad you liked the sweets!

I didn't know what size to make it, as you said you needed it to be big, but it turned out huge lol! Hopefully you can still find some use for it!

The material was a vintage bedsheet I found in a charity shop, I'm making a dress out of the rest of it!

I haul tons of things with me to work on a daily basis, plus craft projects, so its the perfect size. I used it this morning and it worked great  Cheesy
The fabric would make a pretty dress, make sure and post some pictures when its finished.
