You professors did great on partners, yet again. Smiley

And I'm do happy there are so many Bedazzled 'Puffs around here. We totally need to represent!!

I can't get to the craft store until this weekend, so I'm keeping myself inspired by editing all my vacation photos. Just for fun- here's me getting bit by a 'Monster Book of Monsters' in  Dervish and Banges. Smiley

22  Re: 1 Dotee, I ATC and 4 Inchies Gallery Send out Feb. 14, 2011 in The Swap Gallery by PirateColey on: March 02, 2011 06:40:49 AM
Co-Organizer's note: I'm back from vacation and have updated the sent/received info. Please check the first page to make sure your info is up-to-date!! I'll be updating feedback for my group later today.

And in swap news- I found two lovely packages waiting for me when I returned home. Smiley

First, from Katara- this cute Nesting Doll inspired Dotee. I love the ribbon tail!!

Then- she made me these cute inchies (love the use of the letter button) and this AMAZING ATC. I love them all- thanks, Katara!!


Then- from isabelchun, I received this chubby little nesting doll. Her face is so sweet!

The inchies and ATC feature her wonderful style of artwork. I always know when one of her papercrafts is on the front page, because I can recognize her style a mile away. Smiley

Today I finished packing my project bag for the upcoming trip (I leave Sunday). I spent a few hours transferring my images onto fabric and picking out the colors I'll need for batgirl's hoops. Since everything is packed up all nice and neat I thought I'd offer a teaser picture:

Hope that holds you over until I'm back from vacation. Smiley

I love how swap packages always know the best day to show up in your mailbox! I've been TOTALLY stressing out! My husbands job promised us comp tickets to use on our vacation... we leave on Sunday and they're still not here!!!

But my day was brightened when I got this AMAZING package from bedheadchic. TOTALLY worth the month it took to get here. Smiley

First- my new, beautiful, wonderful nesting dolls!! Seriously?! I don't have any in my collection with this much blue!! And the flower motif is perfect!! (can you tell I'm excited?!)

And if that wasn't enough- check out this set of note cards!! I pulled a couple cards, an envelope, and the hilarious sheet of stickers out so you guys could see how cute they are!

Finally, I received a "Keep Calm, Carry On" magnet (already on my file cabinet), a sweet handmade card (that looks like an international mailer), and three hoops- one with a really pretty piece of lace in it.

I am so floored by this package- thank you so much!! This was such a fun swap, I can't wait until next year to do it again. Smiley

I'm so glad you liked your package!! I've been checking my PMs all day, waiting for you to open it. Smiley That shirt looks great on you- it matches your hair (I ALMOST made it blue because of the picture in your profile)!!

Here're the close-ups I took of the jewelry before I sent it (everything except the guild logo pendants):

And here're the files I used to make the framed artwork. My husband and I turned Tygir and her BF's 'toons into cards from the trading card game. (I had to change the format to post it here- the original is a LOT more crisp.)

27  Travel needlework case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PirateColey on: February 12, 2011 03:41:54 PM
So... I found a travel needlework case at a craft supply swap last weekend. It was really practical but also VERY ugly (and smelly). So, I tore it apart and used the basic shape as my pattern. This is what I came up with:

It's made out of pre-quilted fabric, has straps for carrying, one outside pocket, and a full zipper closure. (the sides actually line up really well- I don't know why they look wonky in the picture.)

Here's a close-up of how I did the zipper. Since the pre-quilted fabric had a different finished design on both sides, I didn't need a lining. This posed a problem when it came to putting in the zipper. I finally decided on using bias tape to hide the raw edge.

Inside there are several zip pockets and an open pocket. The vinyl thing in the middle is  binder pages for holding embroidery floss. I put a measuring tape next to it, so you could get an idea of the size.

Here's a close up of one side- you can see there is one large zippered pocked for holding tools, as well as an open pocket for whatever.

The other side just has one giant pocket. It can hold a few embroidery hoops in it. There is also a vinyl scissors holder on this side. Using the scrap fabric, I made myself a matching needle book.

I really LOVE this thing. I'm so SO proud of how it turned out. The zipper doesn't lay perfectly, but it's my first try doing anything like this, and I made up most of the the pattern... My husband and I are going on vacation next weekend and I'm so excited to be able to take my projects in such a cute case.

I received from Piratecoley!

She went with my theme of anatomical:
Thank you! The dotee is so detailed! I think its handpainted!

Yup- handpainted- though I used a pircture from the internet as a guide. I swear I thought that think was going to be the death of me.

I was just wondering how everyone displays their dotees? I'm trying to decide how/where I want to put my new little friends!

I use picture wire and small hooks (like cup hooks, only with a closed circle). The hooks hold the wire taunt and I hang the Dotees from the wire with pretty colored safety pins (though I may switch to mini-clothes pins). Whenever I run out of room I add another row and keep going. Since Dotees have loops for hanging it works out well to display them on the wall and not take up shelf space with them. Smiley

Here's a picture from a couple rounds ago:

I received from the wonderful susanab today!! I knew it was out for delivery and I practically bounced home.  Grin

Susan made me this amazing robot!! Isn't she the best?! She's obviously thinking very hard about something. Smiley I cropped the picture a little wide so you can see how she happens to be the exact shade of green that I painted my craft room.

Then, I got a robot ATC featuring the Lost in Space robot- too cute! And my inchie set is crafty themed. I love how the text in the background is all crafty too! I just love these!

Thanks again, Susan!! What great additions to my collections!
