The manshape woke me up a couple hours ago with my packages Cheesy Was so excited, I didnt even get out of bed before taking a look!

I'm hoping there'll be more of these swaps, I really think I'd do the same and send smaller, multiple packages Cheesy

Taking a peek:

The extreme goodness that was packed into those boxes! So many cool things! I dont know whats the most exciting!

Trail mixes, Dunkaroos, Tootsie roll lolly, Mamba Chewies, Pop Rocks, Mulled Spices, Gummi Bears, Warheads Cubes (OMG How scrummy?!), Fruit Snacks, Filled Eggs (peanut butter, vanilla cream and caramel), Drink mixes (cant wait to try these, have a pack with 6 flavours! Have seen like a barrel with the powder in ready for mixing in the international shop and could never justify spending so much on one in case we didnt like it), Cherry Mash (have never seen anything like this, and it intrigues me muchly, especially given the recipe ideas on the back of the pack) and fruit snacks Smiley

And the crafted love:

Aren't these great? A needle book AND pincushins... I love them! The pin cushions will be put to use in the very near future, I've been needing one (and grumbling about not having one EVERYTIME I sew anything) but never actually getting about to making one myself..

Thank You sooooo much FabricFriend, such a lot of sunshine packed into boxes! It couldn't have arrived at a better time and cheered me up no end (having major home improvement issues right now)

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sewing wallet/Handbag stitch kit on: April 09, 2012 03:43:28 PM
OK, so two things first off.... a) I'm hoping I've got this post in the right place, advance apologies if I'm wrong posting here, and b) I'm not entirely sure what protocol is on sharing projects made in swaps, but I've seen a few (awesome and so rightly) shared after the craft has been received, sooo I apologise if I got it wrong on a second count too Smiley

I made this Stitch Kit for my partner in the International Snack Swap, and she received a week or so ago (my mind wanders alot at the moment, but she's def had it a while). I'm SUPER proud of it, despite deciding I should have added a 'spine' to the book after the fact. I'm not a sew-er. In fact aside from this and the last swap I did, I've not sewn anything that needed any amount of care or attention in like a gazillion years, and I've never felt myself to be much good at it either. This I totally hand stitched (purely because I wasn't confident to run it through my manual machine) and it took me a fair while to do, but I planned everything as best I could, made my patterns (I know there are tons of these about, but I didn't use anything for reference) and took masses of care cutting and stitching.... (Some of the fabric used were teeny squares found in the remnant bin, and left little room for error).
Anyhow, enough of my babble, I'll bore you with some pics Smiley

A closer shot, just 'cause I'm super proud of my stitching where I added the lacy stuff to the ribbon

Action shot. The stamping I did by hand, by scribbling on my stamps with a sharpie. I wasn't precise with the lettering, I wanted it to have a more relaxed feel.

Another action shot of the back of the 'book'  Cheesy

The whole project was inspired by my partners interest in sewing and their pinterest boards, and the starting point for it came from the crinkled ribbon (from a lindt chocolate bunny), everything else was bought to match that.

As always C&C more than welcome, especially on things I sew. I can always use good advice and have my failings pointed out so I can improve Cheesy

I agree, hand shaped holder Smiley Another way could be to fill a rubber glove with plaster and then when its set you can decorate it with all things awesome Smiley

'Scuse my dim-ness but Angels? I'm assuming these are crafters who step in to replace crafts enroute or fill in for crafters who cant complete?
