Hi! I see there are some lovely items on offer already -  nice bracelets, the cards are very pretty and the lip balm looks yummy!

I'd like to offer these little crochet bags, with compartments inside to hold jewellery or other small, delicate items

Closed up they are about 7 inches across

Hope someone likes them! There will be several different colours to choose from, I'll post more pics soon  Smiley

Here's my collection of lovely goodies from this round:

First the felt flowers from KaoticKrafter - these are great, and I love the way all the cards and packaging are recycled too Cheesy

Three lovely pendants - the leather dragonfly from gala_apples, the domino from craftycakelady, and the sweetie heart from I Sew Cute. They are all fab  Cheesy

And the great bath set from sarahj2001, - soap, lipbalm, blue crochet cloth - I love that seaside fabric!

Thank you very much everyone! Cheesy

Also, I have sent a replacement necklace to rlynn - as all the others arrived pretty quickly I'm assuming that one got lost  Angry  Let's hope this one gets there OK!

Hi, I haven't been in this swap for a while - but I'd love to join this round if there is still space ...

Would anyone be interested in a little Charm necklace like this?

The chain is about 18 inches - I will make up some examples in other colours, I have a lot of beads  Smiley

5  Really really simple Granny square wrist warmers in Crochet: Completed Projects by esmecraftin on: October 14, 2010 04:32:13 PM
Hi this is my first post on the crochet board!
So I was looking for a very easy and quick pattern for wrist warmers as it's getting pretty chilly now.
I found lots of different ones, but none of them seemed to work for my limited skills  Smiley - so I made up my own, and they turned out like this:

Basically just a granny square with some stitches missed out for the thumb, and slip stitched together so the join is down the middle of the palm, not the side. I slip stitched around the top and bottom too for a bit more firmness.

This pair came out a bit smaller as the yarn was thinner I think. I used DK yarn and a 4.5mm hook.

I liked how they turned out - but now I've been looking at them too long, I'm not so sure! That always happens when I make something new Roll Eyes

What do you think?

My last 2 items have arrived!

I got the lovely teal wooden pendant from gala_apples (sent on the 14th December - that's nearly a month!), and brilliant chocolate magnets from freestyle! Those magnets are so cute and real-looking  Cheesy

Thanks very much!  Here are the pics!

Here are the little bag (and matchbook notepad); vintage pouch, handmade stamp; papercraft notebook; beaded bracelet and sandwich wrap - that was a personal swap - all excellent and useful things!

Lovely earrings, tree of life pendant and birdie necklace - I have worn all these and they are great

Thank you very much everyone, this was a great swap Cheesy

Oops, I'd better hurry up and join this swap! There are so many great things already on offer - looks like I might have to do 10 this time  Cheesy

So I will be offering Ye Olde keyrings AGAIN (I will have to give these a rest and think of something else to make next year)... But now in the new Birdie Shape!

Will there be enough interest for 10 of these? I will be making them to order in any colour you like, and I'll offer the old shapes too in case anyone doesn't like birdies (how could anyone not like birdies?? Grin

Old shapes - cupcake, flower, heart

Or I could do 5, and 5 of ..something else - probably jewellery.

What do you think?

I also got two lovely scrabble tile pendants from rednightsky, with a nice subtle pattern - I'll have to add the pic later.

Yay! All my dotees have arrived at their new homes  Cheesy
I had ambitious and complicated plans to start with, that did not work Roll Eyes so mine were quite "traditional" dotees.

But here are the excellent ones I received - the cute dress from Smarrt (brilliant idea!) with a nice card and some great fabric included  Smiley


This lovely tree from loobie - with a massive heart and many, many tiny glass leaves - beautiful!

And here are all 3 together

I love them all, Thank you very much everyone!

That necklace does look very pretty, GatorWrangler!  I love birdies Smiley

Oddly enough, I have been making birdie themed stuff too  - a bird version of my charm keyrings.
What do you think?

If people are not fed up of these yet I might offer them next round Cheesy
