I received my wisty surprise from rlynn last week! She sent a beautifully crafted necklace that is just the right length and a rotary cutter.

Thanks rlynn! The necklace is perfect and I'll finally be able to cut straight lines Kiss

Here's a picture of the great bird mobile I received from babalina58! I added chimes to the bottom Grin

And one of the best parts... the cat's not in the least interested in them, she's adopted the box instead! hehe

Thanks babalina!!

Alrighty, here are some pictures of the great vortex hat I received from ifallthraindrops:

Notice how it's exactly the same shade of teal as my coat?! Grin

And just because I'm proud of it (it's my first one), the felted soap I made using the fibers I received from bergman:

Thanks guys!

laura3850 received a while ago and she posted the loveliest pictures of her daughter loving her new hat! I'd actually sent 2 hats... so I just wanted to share pictures of the one I made for her youngest.

And it's doubled for extra warmth!!!

38  Googly Eye Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Geniale on: September 13, 2010 08:30:46 PM
This is a bracelet I made as a bday gift for an 11 year old - nothing fancy, just googly eyes and jump rings. I think it turned out very cute though!!! I'll probably make her some hair clips to go with it.

39  Felt Flower Bouquet (Pics +++) in Completed Projects by Geniale on: September 13, 2010 08:05:17 PM
I made this for someone in the July Bday Swap and just realized I hadn't started a thread for it. I wanted to show it off with more detail because, although I have VERY limited experience in embroidery not with felt and don't have very good tools, I'm quite happy with the results!

I started by making templates for the flowers, then cut out several of each shape and colour and assembled them with glue. Once that was dry, I embroidered each flower, they are all totally different. Finally, passed a wire through two holes of a white button, poked through the flower and through 2 holes of clear buttons (underneath petals) and twisted it tightly enough that neither of the buttons wobbled if you shook it around. Making the bouquet was a lot of trial and error (it's harder to place felt flowers than fresh!), and when I was satisfied, flora-taped the wires together, added a little padding (paper towel), taped over that, then covered with the ribbon which is held down by decorative pins. Oh, and I put a circle of green felt under the flowers to hide the wires.

Thanks for looking! C & C more than welcome Wink

There's always something new coming into our lives - it can be anything (new job, new baby, new home, new computer, new mp3 player, new tv, new camera, new hobby, new pet, new relationship, new school year, new haircut... well,  you get the idea). I'd don't know about you, but I always get really excited when I get new stuff! So, I though it'd be nice to make something for someone's new dada.

This swap will be for a medium and a small (3 points) - though you can agree on a 5 point swap with your partner.


  By Time                                     By Size                                                                                                                              By Price                                       By Point
  - Large = 3 or more hours       -  Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse.    - Large = $30 or more               - Large = 3 points
  - Medium = 2 or more hours   - Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf                                                      - Medium = $10-$30 dollars    - Medium = 2 points
  - Small = 2 or less hours         - Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks                                           - Small = $10 or less                - Small = 1 point
