21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini 12 Days of Christmas 2015 (sign up 8/6 to 8-17/16; s/o 11-23-16) on: August 19, 2016 12:12:42 PM

Hey you!  It has been a long time - and darn you for sending me down the downward spiral of paper crafting - since you sent me those Spellbinders dies, and Stampin' Up stamps, I have amassed far to large a collection of dies and stamps!  I hope what I made for you held up, especially considering it's been about what, 5 or 6 years?

That means my evil plan is working...  Mwa ha ha  Wink

We still have many of the items in use around the house.  Primarily my project bag set.  It's holding up perfectly!  My profile says we did that swap in '11.  So yup, 5 years ago now!!!!  WOW!

I'm really excited about this swap, I've got ideas swirling around in my head after stalking you a bit.  I'll get you the links to the garland and the advent calendar asap.  Smiley  Might be next week, though, because I'll be heading out to the lake right after work today.

Well I'm REALLY late with this (SORRY!), but I was out of the country for 10 days, then I was swamped with design work for bridal season.  I had to play catch-up after my vacation, and I'm finally all caught up (well, I have one bit of design work that I have to do today, but I'm procrastinating - other than that, I'm caught up).

I received from frosty772 the day before I left town.  These fun coasters and a very cute sleeve for my glasses.  Everything is so well-made - just lovely!

My daughter has claimed the pink coasters for herself, and my son claimed the other two.  But the glasses case is just for me, me, me!!  Grin

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and thanks again frosty772!!

Nice! I love the owls! The button is perfect with the colors!

What would you use instead of the fusible fleece?

Well, I *might* still use the fusible fleece - problem is, though, that it doesn't stick to the fusible interfacing - I basted it down a bit, but I really should have been more meticulous, as there are a couple of puckers.  So next time, I think I'd try to strategically sew it into the lining layer before I put the whole thing together - in such a way that all the stitching will be hidden by the pockets and by the eReader itself...

Another thought I had is to put plastic inside the layers - much like the bottom of Amy Butler's weekender bag instructions.  Because I still have yet to MAKE my weekender bag, I'm not entirely sure how to pull that off, so that's why I haven't tried it yet.  But maybe I'll pull out those instructions and see if I can't figure it out!

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments!!

Ugh, I'm a bad swapper!  SORRY that I'm late - last week totally got away from me (I had my bridal show last week and then I had a million things to do to get ready for my onslaught of bridal consultations that starts tomorrow)...  Phhhhhhew! 

So anyway, I received a fab parcel last week from texscrapper that included these sweet goodies:

I tried to do a close-up of the zipper pulls (which are FANTASTIC in real life - such a great variety and I just love the creative things you did with them!!)  The picture is a little blurry, but you can see them a *bit* better than on the owl fabric...

And this morning I whipped myself up a little eReader cover with that lovely owl fabric - I've posted that here

Thanks so much, texscrapper - it's all WONDERFUL!!

I received an eReader for Christmas from my hubby.  He knew better than to get me a cover, figuring I'd rather make my own (smart man), and finally last night he offered to watch the kids so I could get it done...  I found the pattern on etys by BirdifulStitches, and away I went!  My generic e-reader isn't the same size as the pattern pieces, so I made one last night that was ENTIRELY too big - but that's what you get when you're functioning on 3 hours of sleep  Tongue  (my daughter had a nightmare at 2am and I couldn't get back to sleep afterwards - bleck!)

So after a good night's sleep last night (went to bed at 9pm and woke up at 7am - yay!), I tried again.  Aside from a couple little things that I'd do differently next time (mostly to do with the darned fusible fleece layer!), I'm very pleased.  My eReader fits perfectly, and I love that I've got little pockets, just in case. 

I received the owl fabric from texscrapper in the Ongoing Wish Swap, and I was excited to have the chance to use it - I love those owls (and now that my daughter has had a glimpse, she wants me to make her something with it too).

Anyway, so first we have to front view, closed.  I used a giant button that matched the green, and I just love it!

Then, the back view, closed - the extra fabric on the left side was a little mistake from last night's fiasco, but then I decided that I loved it, so I repeated it on purpose today.

And finally, the open view (this came out a bit blurry, sorry!)

So now my eReader can come along in my purse without getting destroyed!! 

Thanks for looking!

Yes, it's "flat piping" - just some bias-cut fabric folded in half, as recommended by the pattern...  Cheesy
