That hat looks great on you.
Good sewing job.

If you do happen to make a tutorial, it will be going directly into my bookmarks so I can try it sometime.

Glad the stuff was liked.
The box tops were done with Oh So Sticky sheets and Ultrafine Micro Beads, both from this store: http://www.pennywisearts.com/beadstrans.html Some good stuffs there.
The inside is a paper velvet I found in a craft store years ago.
The zipper charm is from printer Shinky Dink.  It was the first time I'd tried the stuff and that was the best one that came out - yikes!

Okay, everyone else is going to have to pony up their pictures now, too!

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.

Great award - she liked it, right?

Very nice.
And a great, unusual first choice.

I don't know about better hot glue, but you may try E6000 as it will hold almost anything.  Comes in a cool gray metal tube.
Also, I've heard good things about "Crafter's Pick - The Ultimate" glue, but I haven't even had a chance to open the bottle yet.

For anyone who doesn't like the mints or can't get them, here is a good site:


Scroll down just a bit.  The plain metal tins are the same size as Altoid tins, only unpainted or white.
If you order from them, the shipping listed is an overestimation - mine ended up being half of what it said it would be.

That tablecloth is dazzling.  So much detail.
How long did it take you, finally?

Really spectacular work.
