Alice! Mushroom fabric! Octopus! I love all of them. The yarn looks pretty cool too.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mini Netbook Sleeve With Applique Owl, Stars, and Moon on: August 03, 2010 10:38:47 AM
I made this netbook sleeve for my awesome partner in the Newbie Swap Round 13. I used the tutorial from this laptop sleeve, though the flap is smaller because it was for a netbook. I also sewed the lining corners in so it wouldn't pull out.
It was my first attempt at applique, and some of the owl skewed as I was sewing, but I am happy with how it turned out. I used a thickish navy lycra for the outer fabric, so it had a slight sheen and a nice texture. It is kind of hard to tell in the pictures, but the owl and the lining were both made from a shiny lime green velvety fabric. Here are some pics of the front, back, and the inside lining.






Let me know what you think!

Thanks Scarlet_Angel! I just received my package from melinda06sue after waiting all day, mail came late  Angry I am so thrilled with all the awesome stuff she sent me! On to the pictures -->

The box when it came (I scared the mailman, he was about to knock on my door  Cheesy)


The inside with numbered packages:


Melinda put in the most adorable giraffe dog toy for my dog, and a package of nummy starburst (her favorite!)


Rex has no inhibitions when it comes to chewing on another animal


The first package I opened was an awesome purple sleep set! A microwave heat pack and an eye mask; This is perfect, I have a glaring LED clock that bugs the heck out of me!


Next was a jeans purse! I have always wanted one of these, they are so unique. The belt is a purple zebra print, and the purse is lined with the same print. I love the idea of having pockets on the outside (sorry about your needles!)


Then, an awesome purple purse complete with a matching cell phone case (and a star button!). The case fits perfectly!


And finally, the greatest ever psychedelic needle roll! I love the colors on this!
The outside with purple ribbons (my fave color)


and the inside. She even gave me a set of purple knitting needles in a size I didn't have! Love the many, many pockets, I will put this to good use


Group shot (minus the giraffe, it was away on business)


Melinda, thank you so much for everything! I was totally spoiled with all this awesome stuff. Thanks for being a great swap partner!

Yeah, Melinda and I agreed on extras.
I used  this tutorial for the netbook sleeve itself. I had to alter it a little because it was for larger laptops, and I freehanded the owl, stars, and moon (my first experiment with applique). I also used a pattern for the bride and groom birds: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351370.0. I made the veil using part of a Lionbrand.com pattern because I didn't have tulle. The mario bracelet was fun to make, you can't see in the pics, but the mushrooms and the star have faces. Smiley
