Anyway, those are all so well made!!!  i adore your white & blue hat! And yes, the ornament is definitely from Rudolph- that's hermey!   Wink

Here are so super cool things I received from CatarinaU!

First up, she made me a crochet "market bag"! I love it, it's gonna be perfect for carrying clothes back and forth from school and traveling! It hold so much stuff! I went through my hamper and stuffed a bunch of clothes in there and its still not full! There are two pictures because I think the bottom is so cool looking! :]


Next was this amazing crochet hat! The color combo and button detail is my favorite part! To be quite honest with you I rarely wear hats, but I LOVE this one and will be wearing it excessively! She also sent a matching set of crochet goodies, a headband, coin purse and iPhone cozy! So cool! :]


Catrina sent some really cool jewelry and this amazingly cute ornament from Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer [I think! I haven't seen that movie in forever so I could be wrong]. What is he made of?


She also sent these two gorgeous pendants, the tree of life one is totally cool in its freeform and organic-ness. Haha. Basically I love it! And the crochet one is gorgeous as well, I like how it caves in! Now I just need to find a cord to put it on and I'm set!

THIS IS WHAT MADE THE PACKAGE SMELL SO GOOD! Soaps and lotions. Really though they smell amazing, especially the brownish one! You can see the jar of lotion in the background!

I made this dragon scarf for a swap partner's son recently and she received so I thought I'd post pictures :] He is made out of fleece scraps I had leftover from making my brother a dinosaur costume a fews years ago, buttons for the eyes and nose, and felt for the teeth. It was fairly simple to make, and I am pretty happy with the final result although I suspect if I made another things might improve. In fact, I might even say he was cute!


That same partner also has another son who I thought deserved a scarf as well. Haha. He was more into robots so I ran with that. Using more of the left over fleece, fabric scraps and double sided fusible web I made a little robot applique patch thing and sewed it onto the fleece. That sounds way more complicated than it was.


What do you think?

My partner CatrinaU received and asked if I would post pictures... so here's part of what I sent, I forgot to take pictures of a few things.

Anyway. She has three boys so I decided to make them gifts as well! Instead of wrapping them up I put their presents in drawstring bags so they can be reused for little toys and what not. Each one is based on their favorite colors and obviously their name, haha. For Timmy I made a robot scarf! Niko got a dragon scarf. And last but not least I made Adrian a soft yellow blankie out of t-shirt-y material. I read that he likes to steal yellow t-shirts out of his dresser and sleep with them, so voila!



For Catrina, I made a tote for her to carry around crochet projects and a matching hook case, but sadly I didn't get a picture of that, I hope you liked it Catrina!


I also included store bought toys for the boys and two knit dishcloths made with this pattern.

i am going to pick up my package in a few minuted when the PO opens, hee hee!

Great idea :]
