WOW - the gallery has been busy and this is the first chance I've gotten to visit it. I love seeing all the cute and clever stuff. I've also never heard of a balloon cover - and I loved the knee covers too especially when my daughter was crawling last winter on chilly hard wood floors.

Well, right before I had a playgroup arrive at my house today my package from igobylorib arrived. She just crafted the most darling things for my daughter.
(thanks, igobylorib!!)

I had written in my questionaire that Astrid loved nature so we received a cute appliqued tee with a tree on it. The fabric is really cute - a girl and her whirlygigs, birds, etc. Astrid had to tell me ALL about each item. And then she made the cutest stuffie toy - it's a tree with little apples that are velcro-ed (sp?) on. This was a huge hit during playgroup as they are all learning to count. AND get this --- a group of toddlers ACTUALLY sharing a toy??? Unheard of!  Wink 

Astrid kissing her stuffie (and house destroyed by playgroup in background)

And then she made the most adorable reversable apron with retro cowboy fabric on one side (playing the geee-tar) and a fun orange polka dot print on the other (which matches my Fiestaware kitchen perfectly). And it was just in time as we had started making Christmas cookies.  Smiley
Action shot of cowboy side:

And the polka dot side:

And lastly an adorable pillowcase in the cowboy fabric trimmed in ribbon and embellished with a fun flower. This is perfect to put on one of the pillows in her reading nook.

Sorry for the blurry photos - my camera battery was close to dead so I squeezed these out before it died.

Kat, I'm so glad that you and Astrid loved the package. I had a hard time with colors at first because you requested no pink. Having a girl myself (she's 6), I can not imagine life without pink LOL. I wanted to incorporate her favorites and the cowboy retro print was the only cool fabric I could find with gee-tars Grin I really loved the way the tree turned out and am glad that Astrid and her friends put it to good use. My son is 2 1/2 and I need to make him a tree now. By the way, the pillow case fits a travel pillow perfectly Smiley

I will add some pics in a minute-

Here are some pictures I took. I didn't take a picture of the apron before sending it Sad

a close up of the t-shirt Smiley

The apple tree stuffie. One apple is turned over and shows the velcro dot on the back. I didn't put the other side of the velcro on the tree because I thought Astrid would rather put them where she wants to. Plus it's made out of felt so the velcro sticks well.

the pillow case, which fits a travel pillow perfectly Smiley

such adorable goodies!  I don't have kids to craft for, not even any young ones in the family at the moment, so unfortunatly I have to sit out swaps like this, however I love to craft for little kiddies!

Great work guys!

Here is the fantastic package I recieved from dragonslair:

First, some giant bibs for Turing.  I hate how all the bibs are like 3 inches big and I need some that are 10 inches big.  These are perfect (and I hear Duncan helped !)

Then a cute book with the letters of Turing's name cross stitched and an animal for each letter.  It's a page turner!

And a super cute scarf for mom.  And given the cold front that has been here for the last week, every layer is appreciated.

Thanks, dragonslair!

Cute stuff, sneeg! Looks like your little guy really enjoyed his goodies!

Just a quick reminder, everyone - don't forget to pm me when you receive. I am watching the gallery but I'd hate to miss someone and give the wrong feedback! Thanks! Smiley

I think this should be called the AH swap :-) when i see the action shots of the wonderful crafted toys and gifts with the gorgeous little ones i think AH! Grin

Dragonslair did you cut that scarf from one piece of fabric - if so where can i find the pattern, it'd make great xmas pressies if i can get to it quickly!! Smiley
