I'm very sorry for taking sooooooooooo long. I finally manage to make the camera work. The auto-focus is dead and the vision thing is all weird and makes a tic-tac sound but I managed to take some decent clear shot of all that tie-dye-ny goodness!!!

My awesome green pants!

Shirt for my girl (she adores it!)

Shirt for my boy (a tad too big, but hey, it's spidey-colored!)

My shirt!!

And I had to picture that awesome buddha necklace with my current favorite ring, cuz they are a perfect match!! I worn those all week Smiley

Thank you so much Abbee! We always love what you send us Cheesy

(the sachet was nowhere to be found. I guess it's now a barbie pillow.)

5  Little Adventurer Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Mamaneedles on: April 27, 2015 05:43:52 AM
I usually make dolls as birth gift, but this paticular little girl, conceived somewhere in South America, is made for traveling!
So I deceided to execute something I had in mind for a long time, a rcuksack-style Adventure Bag!

I used  brown coreduroy pants for the base, and multi-colored peruvian weaved fabric that used to be a baby sling.
The strap can be insterted in 5 different straps, so the bag is very versatile, from toddler-size backpack and side carrier to adult size.
My toddler didn't want to let go of it, so I take it as a good sign Smiley

I've also added a little quote, for fun!

I made a simple tea wallet for a friend, copied on one I received from a swap.
I tried machine-embrodery a quote, but it didn't came out too well on tweed.

Tea lover, Enjoy!

Would you like an adventure now, or shall we have tea first? -Peter Pan

10  Yoga/Zen/Meditation Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by Mamaneedles on: March 08, 2015 02:29:09 PM

(Trikonasana courtesy of my son Victor with his own beautiful varation. Awesome tie-dye onesie by our beloved craftster Abbeeroad)

I haven't swaped for a long, long time! A year maybe? But I've looked around and haven't seen an active one so, let me suggest you a Yoga/Zen/Meditation Swap!! May it be a yoga mat, inspirational quote on a tote, a colorful zafu, yummy smelling mat spray, inscense, feel-good bath salt or yoga socks!! Anything you'd wish yoga or zen related Smiley

I'll host it (haven't done that in forever!) and I don't know how busy you all are but a 3 or 5 pts sound great to me. I'd start the sign-up soon, like the 15th and leave it open two weeks, leave a whole month to craft and put the SO at May 1st.

Anybody in? Cheesy
