I got my package from psyche! *does a little happydance*
With zebra print packing tape, nonetheless. Psyche tapes with style!
here's all the goodies at once:
psyche used her magic powers to divine that sewing scares me, so she sewed all kinds of textiley goodness for me. first up, the octopants purse:
made from corduroy pants and pj bottoms. a bit hard to see, but it has supersoft paisley lining and the most adorable octopus applique ever.
next are market bags, which i shamelessly hinted that i wanted. beg and ye shall receive:
I *love* the pink bag - it was a shirt in its past life, and she left the buttons and other little details on it. the gray bag is plain, which is perfect because i just bought a brand new roll of freezer paper that needs to be used for some stenciling. I should be looking for a new job today, but crafting is way more fun.
last up are cute zipper pouches and a cocktail hat:
the cocktail hat is a papier mache base with a cherry print fabric (sweet!) and a little fall of tulle to waft ever so elegantly in the breeze. sorry, no action shots - i just got back from a run, and i don't look anything even close to elegant. i just wouldn't do the hat justice.
the pouches are not only cute but useful - a girl can never have enough pouches! the skull print is colorful goth, and the blue one has a bright green zipper that you can't see in the picture. that's screaming for some stenciling, too. maybe i'm just overly excited about freezer paper....
psyche, thank you so much! i love everything, you are just plain ol' fabulous!
