1  Hand-Cuffed in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by NavyBlue4Eight on: June 18, 2012 08:13:41 PM
Not really, but it got your attention, right?   Grin

Our church is having a rummage sale this weekend, but we had nothing to donate.  However, I offered to make some bracelets they could put out at the bake sale.  I couldn't find a pattern I really liked, so created these instead using fabric scraps and buttons from my stash.  What do you all think?  

I thought I would love the blue one (which has two buttons for size adjustment), but really like the preppy little green one.  I hope I have enough of that fabric for a second one.

Edit: I meant to mention that these are just my prototypes.  I'm soliciting opinions to see if I should make more or scrap the whole idea and try something else.

I received from ZucCca a couple days ago and finally found the camera.  This is her first swap, but she is already a pro!  She completely "got" me, and got her package in the mail way early.  I don't feel like these pictures do everything justice, but here goes...

What came out of the box:

Here's a closeup of the green container.  It came covered in magnetic poetry - which I LOVE!  We have some up on our fridge, but none as pretty as these.

This is what came out of the green container.  The glass at the top of the picture was broken Sad  but everything else arrived intact. Grin 
The pink circle is the softest thing ever!  There are pieces of lace rolled up in one of the shoes - the lace is so think and pretty.  The little plastic ziploc holds tiny dolphin hair clips and the round plastic container has two necklace charms (a dolphin and a bird) plus some tiny beaded flowers!

My whimsies had whimsies!!
Look at that little tiny paint kit.  It fits in the palm of my hand when open!

Some of my favorite things - it was incredibly hard to narrow the choices down though. 

ZucCca - Thank you so much - I love, love everything you sent! 
By the way, my hubby would like to know what type of product was used to make the coin purse.  We were guessing candy...  Roll Eyes

"tree" people have posted since I last looked!  I loved the little willow tree and the cards and all the goodies!!

Now it's my turn - I received on Monday, but haven't had a chance to post until now.  I was stunned at all the goodies that came out of the package - I was totally spoiled by pinkmichk!  I especially love the fact that she sent me crafts that I could not have ever in a million years made myself.  

Group Shot!

A willow tree for my wall - it reminds me a bit of the trees you see in the Bayou...

A gorgeous tree of life in jewel tones.

Tree and Leaf Jewlery!!  I absolutely love the irridescent beads in the tree jewlery.  And I wore the leaves today - I couldn't resist.  

And last, but not least - a tissue holder for my purse made out of tree fabric.  Who here doesn't love some tree fabric?!

THANK YOU PINKMICHK!!   This swap was so much fun and I appreciate all the work you did. Cheesy

Edit - I was just looking over my post and realized that everything in my package is crafted in my favorite colors (the colors of the ocean).  Now I'm just beyond words...

Chuggypig - I'm SO GLAD that you like everything.  I know I mentioned this to you before, but I was really worried because the items were more "inspired by" and less literal than I originally intended.

You didn't say if you noticed that the fabric on the front of the card matches the fabric I used to line the anti-auditor kit / coin purse.  That was the item that kept giving me fits -turns out that zippers are harder than they look!

Also, I wanted to show your letter of acceptance from the Assassin's Guild - signed by Lord Downey himself!  (My DH was so proud of that signature - he practiced it and everything)... Grin

I received from Chuggypig yesterday but, as promised, didn't open the package until her's was packed up and ready to go.  I am still deciding if it was better to wait or not - she is so very talented!  Wisting fingers ready?

First up, a fabulous homemade card and matching lino cut!  I had said that I wasn't a big fan of paper crafts, but I envision the lino cut getting used to create some discworld fabric for future use. Cheesy

And the closeups of Death and his puffy kitties...

Next, I've FINALLY been granted official access to the Unseen University Library!  *happy dance*

And last, but not least... 
When I saw this, I thought, "It couldn't possibly be...".

But it is.  I wisted it a while back, thinking that maybe one day I would have a chance to buy one. 
I have no words for this - I didn't squeal or yell or jump up and down.  I was simply speechless...

Chuggypig - I cannot find the words to thank you enough.  Everything is gorgeous and the details are amazing! 
Thank you for making my first swap extra special! Grin
I can only hope you like the things I send half as much as I love everything you sent.

6  Aloha! A Bag Big Enough to Take Shopping on the Island... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by NavyBlue4Eight on: July 28, 2010 06:54:19 PM
Let me say up front that this is my first handbag.  Ever.  I've made baby bibs, baby blocks and skirts but wasn't sure I was up to this challenge.  So I dove right in, using a two fabric remnants I picked up along the way.  I figured I had nothing to loose, but turns out I REALLY like my bag.  Grin  It is perfect for summer, big enough to store a waterbottle and an umbrella in, and is like nothing else I see at the office every day.  My mom asked for one, which is like a cherry on top.  C&C's please - I would love your honest feedback!
