Hey guys this is what i got from my AWESOME partner!

the front, with its super intricate beaded front (i love skully stuff):


and the back, with its camo (again, which i love) and some change (as it is a change purse)


it's totally perfect as i just got a new wallet and (after taking off the tags and using it) i realized it had no change pouch :(

thanks peihan! i totally love it  ;D ;D ;D

Post by: peihan17 on January 21, 2007 01:26:03 PM
lasandri,

Glad to see you (and everyone else) liked it  :)  I was really unsure of how to go about making a coin purse that incorporated stuff you liked, and I've never attached any of my beadwork onto anything else before.

I've been out of town all weekend, but hopefully I'll have something in the mail when I get back tomorrow!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: peihan17 on January 22, 2007 03:44:51 PM
Okay, here's the cutest little turtle that lasandri made for me!  I *really* like turtles, and I like anything blue, and this little guy is everything good in one  ;D

Just a regular shot:


And the lil' guy in his new habitat:


Thank you, lasandri!  :D

Now I just have to think of a name for him....

Post by: LuxieLou on January 22, 2007 09:03:31 PM
I totally thought I bookmarked this thread but I forgot! I love the skull coin purse and the turtle is super cute!

I received my package from i_made_it today and it is awesome. The only thing I asked for (and had no idea I would get) was a girly knit or crochet octopus.


She's so cool with her pink bow and she has the cutest little purse with a cupcake on it!



I really so happy with this - it is exactly what I hoped for and more! She's like my logo, she'll stay in my craft room and I'm going to call her Lou! :)
Thank you!!!

Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: i_made_it on January 23, 2007 12:32:59 PM
I got my package from LuxieLou and it's just what I had asked for.  It's a zippered pouch and I like how it's nice and subdued on the outside with the cute little button flowers...


and the inside is bursting with colors! 

I love that retro fabric.  It's like a little surprise everytime I open it. Thank you!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: Ezri_B on January 23, 2007 01:29:58 PM
oh wow, everything is so amazing so far! I love how the octopus has a purse!

WooHoo! I got my package from Yamwam today! It rocks!

Give me a bit and I'll post pics.

So, I was going to wait until tomorrow and take pics in the natural light but then I remembered I was having surgery in the morning (I'm still in denial) and probably won't feel like it  ::)   So here is the best I could do at night in my poorly lit house.



The cutest little matchbox stash box!!!!!!  ;D



Complete with sparkly stash!!

It's a really nice purple color in real life which I love. Thanks again Yamwam!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: yamwam on January 23, 2007 07:09:10 PM
Hurrah! I'm so glad you like it. The purple covering is origami paper I picked up in Hong Kong. You said you find Asian and Celtic themes appealing, so I thought you might like this pattern, technically Japanese but with a sort of Celtic-knot twist. (Was that a pun?)

Thanks for posting pictures (I forgot to take any before sending it off), and I hope your surgery goes OK!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: charliebrown on January 23, 2007 10:03:49 PM
I love that matchbox stash box, what a great idea!! And I second the good luck wishes for your surgery tomorrow.


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: BonBabbu on January 23, 2007 10:25:25 PM
That box is such a cute idea to put in thos little thingies you would lose otherwise!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: the felt fairy on January 24, 2007 12:11:32 AM
The  flower purse is really cute, love the funky fabric inside. The stash box is excellent aswell, i've never seen anything so small like it.

And I second the good luck wishes for your surgery tomorrow.

Good luck from me also.  :-*


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: Modus Operandi on January 24, 2007 04:07:48 AM
such a cool stash box...never seen anything like that before!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: sarah- on January 24, 2007 03:02:53 PM
Wow I've been loving the little purse all day and the match box stash, that's just way too cute!

(good luck from me too) :)

Very cool stash box!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery

Thanks for the good luck wishes everyone  ;D  I'm home and hurting but my surgeon and all the nurses were absolutely fantastic.  I'm pretty much stuck in bed for the next few days so it's gonna be working on Yamwam's OTT full-time  ;)


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: charliebrown on January 27, 2007 12:45:01 AM
Mayerlove and I received from each other and I just want to say that we did not discuss what we would send each other. Here is a picture of the cute knitted/felted coin purse Mayerlove sent me:



It's really more purple and less blue in real life.

And here is the coin purse I sewed and sent to her:



Thanks for a great swap!

Post by: Saor on January 27, 2007 05:57:42 AM
Everything is lovely! I love the octopus with the purse and the stash box.

I received something amazing from the Felt Fairy. 

I got this wonderful piece of art from the felt fairy. I love cats (I have four) and I have a small collection of cat pictures and statues. This is the best of both worlds because it's a 3-d picture. I gazed at it for ages after I got it. It reminds me of one of my cats. It's not hung yet but I keep opening the box to have a peek and gloat. The quality of the second picture isn't great. .

I got my package from Homerof2 yesterday! She sent me this lovely quilted magnet :)





Thank you Cindy, you have some talent!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on January 30, 2007 01:06:32 PM
I received from Modus Operandi today and let me say, this girl has TALENT!

Enclosed in the package was the cutest little box in the world!  She knew that I liked tulips and so she painted one on this box (both on the top and running down the side) and even included a very tiny ladybug.  The box is about 1 1/2" tall and has a 2" diameter, so it's small but oh, so adorable.

Here's a side view:

                                   

and a top view:

Your cat was awesome Felt Fairy! I loved it but didn't have time to comment on it at the time  ;) I really liked the way you made it into a picture - I like stuff that's functional  :D


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: cyndiq on February 01, 2007 02:48:00 AM
i was busy when i looked first time to comment, but i thought the cat was awesome, reminded me of my old cat i had. very like her. what a great sculpteress of felt.

i also like the skully, we dont have them over here in oz i dont think much, its a mexican sugar skull for a special time there i gather. anyhow its great and lovely handiwork skills.

I received from spacekitty today. I literally gasped! My pictures don't do it a bit of justice.





She knit me a wristlet. It's gorgeous. It has beautiful blue, green, and purple yarn. She lined it with a sueded material. It is wonderful! I can't believe how stunning it is!

Thank you thank you thank you spacekitty!!!!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery

everyone made such pretty stuff!  How long did the felted cat take you?  Looks hard!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: bhean on February 01, 2007 02:02:38 PM
I just throught to check the gallery and I didn't realize so many people had received already!!!!  I'm loving it all (esp since there seems to be many skulls about  ;)) And that felted cat is astounding!  Gotta love the funky functional stuff (purses and stash boxes) not to mention all the pretties (bracelets and magnets, etc)
I hope mine survives transit and that it is liked...


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: spacekitty on February 01, 2007 02:43:04 PM
Everyone's stuff looks amazing!  I loved the jingly bracelet I saw, and the framed 3D felted cat.  Also the skulls are so fun and goth and cute.  =D  I'm so excited for my treat.  Yay!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: flower on February 02, 2007 03:06:49 AM

Heres what I recieved from flower

I think I have the worst camera known to man.  For the life of me I could not get a clear picture.

Its embroidered and it says "WILL KNIT FOR FOOD"


And here's the inside (with my kniting supplies already in...I have so many stitch markers and I hardly ever use them)


The embroidery is so detailed and so small.  Thank you flower!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: yamwam on February 02, 2007 12:52:15 PM
What a funny idea! Good job, flower. I'd love to see a clearer picture of the embroidery on the lid--it looks hilarious!

Did the artist of the "will knit for food" tin give credit to Natalie Dee (who made the comic "hats for tats" that said "will knit for tattoos")?  Just wondering.  (I didn't check to see if it was posted elsewhere)

Needle felting is really easy. Put in a nut shell - you stab at loose fibres (with special barbed needles) until they felt together. Getting your fibres to look like something in particular is a bit trickier lol.

I couldnt say how long it took me, I worked for about 2 days picking it up every now and then.

Post by: the felt fairy on February 03, 2007 02:36:42 AM
I have just received the most beautiful bracelet from Saor.

I'm so lucky, its's exactly 'me' and I am never taking it off. (well maybe in the shower lol)

 


Thank you so much Saor!

I'm sorry - you are right.  I should have given Natalie Dee credit.  I didn't think about it until after I posted and I have not had access to the internet for a few days.  I found the picture off of katie's wists and modified it.  Natalie Dee has a great sense of humor.  :)

On his back he also has an orange tail with some green details on it.
I love it!

I got my tiny thing from Tristitia and I was floored!  I've admired her ATCs, but now I see that her talent extends in many other directions.  Behold my gorgeous new friend!



I love that she lives in this tiny distressed shoe....can you see the little skully?  And the colours!!!!!!   I don't know why the beautiful mossy greens in her hair didn't show up  :( This pics shows the true colours better and the gorgeous fabrics she used:



I love how she sewed the leaves in her handspun hair...



And here's a closeup (unfortunatly blurry) pic of the shoe, there's mossy paint and newspaper scraps, leaves and a bird - I can't decide if they grew there because her shoe is hiding in the park or if she decorated herself  :D



I adore her so much!  Thank you thank you Tristitia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Title: Re: OTT 10 Gallery
Post by: tristitia on February 07, 2007 06:18:21 AM
I'm glad you like her  :)
The shoe opens with velcro, and you can take her out, but she doesn't have arms or legs, lol!  She's made out of a baby sock.

katie_ramone9 sent me the most beautiful, teenie, tiny rosary.  The main loop barely fits on my wrist.  It was the most wonderful surprise.  I did not ask for a rosary or ever expect to receive one, but I will truly cherish it - and use it!  Katie, thank you for the lovely and very thoughtful gift.  I adore it!

I only wish I had a camera that took better pictures so you all can appreciate it as much as I do.

Phew!  I'm so glad you like it and it got there in one piece  ;D  I was going to fix the beads to the glass at a couple of points but I thought that would make it more difficult to clean when you need to change the candles.  The weight of the glass keeps it in place when it's hanging. 

Thanks for an awesome swap Homerof2!!!

I got my magnificent OTT from Bhean today - it really is soooo cool!
It's a little sculpture piece, soldered together with a microscope slide and wings and... well, I can't really describe it, but it is very neat!  I asked Bhean if she took pics and can post them, 'cuz my camera batteries died while I was trying - otherwise I'll try tomorrow after they're charged.
Thank you Bhean!!!!
(oh, and my husband also loved it - it has taken a place of honor on top of the TV!)

Okay, here are the pictures:
(they don't quite do justice - I'm not good at getting pics of shiny objects...)

Full view from the front:


Full view from the back:


Close-up of face:


And close of of collage detail at the base:


I see this getting placed on a million wists right now...

So, Bhean, how'd you solder the pieces together so well?  I was interested in making microscope slide pendants, and got a soldering whatchamacalit, but the instructions that I found told me to first tape the slides together with copper tape, which I can't seem to find in any hardware stores... did you use that tape first, or just the soldering wire?  Your piece is held together so securely...
And it that base a made from a piece of a candlestick?  Cool idea!  How'd you cut it?  I think you've sparked a new direction of craftiness for me as well as yourself with this one!

ok my partner noriiani has recieved, she is sick so I will show what i made. She likes my glass slide pendants and likes octopus and squid. so I went with that idea.
Here is a pic of front, on the front was the octopus stamp and on the back was a cool squid stamp. I made a pouch to send it.


anyhow glad it got there, Cyndiq

Thank you so much for posting a pic, cyndiq.  I absolutely love the necklace and the pouch is just so awesome!  I can't wait to go to the museum on Monday (it's what I do everyday on my days off) and wear my octopus necklace, and use the pouch for my pass.  Very appropriate considering I spend most of my time in the marine research exibit!  Oh and I'll have to go see DEEP SEA agian on IMAX!  Such a good movie (i've only seen it 5 times so far...)  Anyways, the necklace and pouch couldn't have been more perfect.  Thank you!  I love it!

Hopefully your package will get there soon....I'm starting to worry!

We only have one package left to be received and then this swap is finished.  I'm going to organize the next round and I'll probably open for sign ups in about 2 weeks.  I'll post a link here and on the OTT 10 main thread when I've opened them so you all will know about it.

Thankyou, cyndi
