51  Re: Donnie Darko Gallery (Photo heavy post) in The Swap Gallery by Sarcastra on: February 22, 2006 12:22:44 AM
I got my fantastic items from recycled-earth today.  Here are some photos:

A shot of everything.  Simply ignore the skewish tree shadows - had to catch the last of daylight before work.  This pic doesn't do the tote any justice - it is really nice and not at all boring as the evil camera made it appear in this one.  The vintage Smurfette pillow is on the right and a baggie of a dozen 1" pins is in the foreground.

This first shot shows the excellent flap on the front of the tote, which flaps down to expose rows of elastics on the tote side for sliding items into and pockets on the flap side, perfect for unwieldy long items.  The sides of the tote are shown in the next two photos.  The back of the tote is not shown, but has two rows of really big pockets in canvas on it.

Last shot is of the little pins.  She claims she didn't make them herself.  She did, however, do a great job of picking out some of the best shots in the movie.

Why this is perfect, the whole story:
A few weeks after the swap started, I got the list of supplies required for my General Art class.  (I love that an art class is actually required!! Fun.) Since it is general art, you need a couple of every arty supply that exists, it seems like.  All of these items I got and managed to shove into my bookbag, albeit roughly and crowded - except for the monstrous drawing pad of 80lb paper.  The thing wouldn't fit in my bookbag so, I've had to carry it to class each week, which SUCKS!  No one in the class has managed a good way to carry this enormous, flyaway pad of paper.  A pair of gals use a shopping bag and everyone else carries it in, to their dismay and annoyance.  The tote recycled_earth made for me FITS THE DRAWING PAD PERFECT!!  It's like she had the measurements.  Not only does it fit both drawing pads (why two? - long story..) it also fits the watercolor pad, two sketchbooks, folder, notepad and trays.  My watercolors and color pencils fit in the back pockets perfectly, brushes and ruler fit in the front flap down perfectly, pencils in the other back pocket and the whole thing is neatly contained - with some room left over, ready to go by my door, which is vital since the class is dead early for me and I'm not high-functioning when sleepy.  Oh yeah, it looks absolutely badass, too.
This is the most perfect swap package I've ever gotten.  Thank you and you rock!

Edited for typos, because I seem to have fat fingers tonight.

Okay, so this is really late, but...
Here are a few of the 14 stockings I made.
Everyone coming to my holiday party got one, stuffed full of goodies this year.

The rest are here: http://www.too-lazy-to-be-evil.com/projects/HolProj2005.htm on my site.

Edited because holiday doesn't have two Ls.

StarSix received yesterday so here is a quick pic of what I sent her.

A wine colored flannel with black curlicues was used for the short tote, which is lined in black. 
A zippered pouch and a tissue package cover.  The tissue in the photo was a prop - the package inside is new, sealed, ready for use.

I got my package from kmsmaverick today.

Inside the box was this fantastic purple bag.  A long, adjustable black web strap contrasts nicely with the purple fur fabric.  The fur is a mottled, swirly purple and has circles in the nap.  Did you do that yourself kmsmaverick or did the fabric come like that? Either way, it is very cool.
And on the inside...

Lots of pockets!  Also inside was a coordinating zipper pouch seen to the right in the first photo.
I'm going to love carrying this around.  She did an excellent job on this - those are some nice seams.
Good work and thank you much!

Got my pouch today.
btlgrl did a great job - and to think she was concerned if I'd like it or not.  Silly thing!

The pouch has a flower background fabric with flowers stiched to the front.  The inside is a neat gold print lining.
She also included a flower pen and bracelet and a very nice handmade card.
All flower themed.
Thanks for everything, btlgrl.  Everyone in this swap has done such fantastic work.

Finished this today.  Straightforward, quick pattern with no glaring errors in the view I made.
This size seems a bit too big, but I'll have to wait to see it on my 'goddaughter' before I know for sure.
