SugarGliders101 informs me she has received (after I took forever to send anything) and asked me to post photos of what I'd sent so here goes:

A shoulder bag.  SugarGliders101 assures me that she doesn't think the wee sugar gliders are creepy-looking. 

The inside, with a pocket and a key fob down there on the right.  (One of these days I am going to sew a perfect pocket and then the world will have to bow down before me.)

And the other stuff.  There's a card of Shrinky Dinks buttons, a crocheted cellphone/mp3 player holder and a coin purse I bought from Wal-Mart because it was so apropos.

(The white patches in some of the photos are the result of image degradation, which is itself a result of me trying to force these photos to fit within the 75k requirements for Craftster picture hosting.)

Here's the green-bag goodness I received from C4R0L1N4 about two weeks ago.  I am a tardy bastard and I didn't open her package until recently BUT she was not late and she sent her's ahead of the deadline and it is WONDERFUL!  Okay, enough chatter, y'all want to see the proof.

The package contents: Shoulder bag, clutch AND bracelet!

The front of the shoulder bag.  Notice the lovely detailing with sequins, bead, ribbon and an embroidered skull and crossbones!  Jealous yet?:

The inside of the shoulder bag:

A close-up of the embroidery.  I just noticed this after I uploaded the picture, the chalky bit is from the chair and is not a whoopsie by C4R0L1N4.

And a clutch!  This was just what I was hoping for and here it is andIamsoexcitedIcannoteventellyou!  Again!  With sequins, beads, ribbon and an embroidered skull!  Oh, so happy, so very very happy.

Thank you so much C4R0L1N4!  You have mad skillz!  Dang!

Now I really have swap anxiety about the stuff I sent....  Undecided

WHAT?!  You have anxiety about what you sent?  It was FANTASTIC!!!

I received Bobolink's package on Friday but I didn't open it until last night because I was, quite rightly, paranoid that I would see what it was, realize what I was sending was kakon and would then have to start crying.  So I waited until after I sent my package to her (and I was way late with it, too).

So that others may envy me, may I present the bestest bag and bag charm EVER:

The felted tote bag and the charm package wrapped in a MAP, yes an actual map.

A close up of the free-form robot detail

The charm in two parts.  The bead letters are actually a separate charm that is now attached to my cellphone.

And a close-up of the BeadBot.

Just the BEST stuff EVER!!  Oh, so good, so very very good....

24  Super Pink and Pleated Tote Bag - Extra Loud in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ConcreteJungler on: July 17, 2005 05:40:20 PM
I just realized that the pleats at the top are not all that visible.  Um, trust me.  They're there.  This was for the Tote Bag Swap and included some other accessories which I posted separately here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43910.0 so as not to clutter up the place.

The design was from a pattern book so I couldn't post a tutorial.  But if anyone has any construction questions and they don't mind answers like "well, you put that one thing with the edge on that other round dealie and go oomph!"  then ask away.

The front, with an outside stash pocket (also featuring some rusty patio furniture.  Classy.)

The back

And the inside with a pocket and a key lob.  I love key fobs.

In retrospect, I would have clipped the corners like in Sushifume's rounder roomy bag tutorial.  And I would have interfaced the handles.  Also, I would not have done it at 3:00 a.m.  Maybe add a gusset?  The pattern originally called for a gusset with side pockets but, dude, it was 3 a.m.

25  Needle Case & Yarn Holder: Why should knitters get all the cool stuff? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ConcreteJungler on: July 17, 2005 05:27:25 PM
This was part of the package I sent to my trading partner in the Tote Bag swap.  One of her skills was crocheting so I HAD to make her something cool, right?

So here is the crochet needle case I made from McCalls's M4728 pattern with some slight modification:

Rolled up and ready for transport

Unrolled, getting ready for action

Completely opened

A detail of the zippered pocket with tape measure holder

Close up of the stitch markers made using a tutorial on the Michael's website for memory wire

And here is the yarn holder/handbag I also made, based on the lined zipper pouch tutorial here on Craftster.  The handle unclips to make a clutch handle in case she wanted to either hang it above her while she crocheted or to carry on her wrist.

This is a detail of the grommet through which the yarn would feed.

And this was the actual tote bag that fit all this stuff inside.

Well, that was what I did last weekend.  I was tired of all the cool accessories that knitters got while crocheters got nothing but toothbrush holders.  Rise up!  Rise up, I say!

I got my lovely bag from Ppcakes last week.  I'm not sure if you can see it clearly enough but the green lining is actually a wee cheetah print!  She also enclosed a small pouch.  It is so cute and it's now sitting in my car full of library books that need to be returned.  I'm not sure if it was meant to be reversible, but that's the way I'm going to use it!
Here's the blue side:

And here's the wee green cheetah side.  Have I mentioned how darn cute it is?

I sent my package to her just today because I am the world's biggest procrastinator and she is the world's most patient person.  Grin

27  Raid the Thrift Store Swap in The Swap Gallery by ConcreteJungler on: June 12, 2005 11:09:15 PM
Okay!  I'll start!  Here are the lovely things I received from Princess_Me.  I tried my best to get good photos but I was working with a lo-res camera phone, so Princess_Me, if you took any photos, by all means post them!

First. the lovely and festive box they arrived in:

And the contents!  On my wish list, I had asked for "Birds" "Something sparkley" "Cases of all kinds" and "Vintage digital wristwatches".

You can't it very well, but the green watch has a talking Krusty that says "Hey kids! It's story time!" and then laughs manically.  Also included was a package of star-shaped studs, but they seem to have gone missing and I think one of the cats has it.

This was my first swap and it was so much fun!  Thanks, Princess_Me!  Now, if I could only get off my keister and mail your package...

This post was my entry into Craftster way back in the fall of last year.  I was actually looking for a sewn cellphone holder pattern when I happened upon this one.  I hadn't crocheted since I was in elementary school and had never even managed more than a single row, but I persevered (cue maudlin music, wipe away nostalgic tear) and made these:

Thank you, Craftster!!!

29  Re: rejected SnB projects, post yours here! in Crochet: Completed Projects by ConcreteJungler on: May 18, 2005 11:55:42 PM
OK, this is my first Craftster post!  I was a total submission tramp and a crochet beginner so I was really hoping for a free book (since I'm going to buy it anyway), thus the deluge of single crochet.  And the overabundance of photos.  Sorry.

Et maintenant:
Bunny Cellphone holder - Front

Bunny Cellphone holder -Back (Look at his fluffy tail! Aaaaawwww...)

A mess of a scarf I made to resemble an eel.  No, really.

And a coffee cup hand-burn-preventer.

I simply canNOT believe the level of creativeness I am seeing in this post.  I must concur with everyone else, the accepted projects must really rock.
