I love that pillow.  The s'mores fabric is so cute.  Where ever did it come from?

I've updated 'feedback' on the first post of the gallery. 

I fear I've made a complete and utter mess of everything since I now have a different colour and strikeout for just about every possible scenario in a swap.  Check it out.  Does it make sense?  No?  Didn't think so.

For those of you yet to post pics, please do so.  Creators of said items not yet on display, please feel free to post pics instead.

I still want to give Linzo a chance to post pics, but since she has received I posted a couple of my knitted items on the knitting board.  Here is the link so you can see them: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178556.0

I am really proud of the water bottle holder, though the D rings are too small, but still usable.  I unfortunately didn't have any other option at the time.

You should be proud too.  They are lovely items.  I never even thought about a water bottle cozy.  I'm a knitter too, and I couldn't even think of one knit item to make for this swap.  I think its the first time I've ever sent a swap package without something knit or crocheted.

Sorry for the late post! I received from lutheranchick a while ago, but never got around to posting until now (I had been camping with my family. Smiley )

The package actually arrived while we were camping, so my daughter brought it to us so I could use it while camping. (Forgot the firestarters at home, and used the ones lutheranchick sent. They work great!)

Here is a picture of everything together. There's a tablecloth that, when folded and clasped with the clip, doubles as a sit-upon, a thrifted aluminum cooking pot (great for Girl Scout stew!) filled with homemade firestarters (I'll have to make some of these, myself!), and lovely notecards for snailmailing people.

Here's a close-up of the notecards. Sorry for the blur, the picture doesn't do them justice.

And the firestarters! As I said, these really came in handy during our trip, and everyone appreciated them.

This is a picture of the sit-upon/table cloth, partially unfolded. It's great!

Thanks again, lutheranchick! Everything was wonderful! Smiley

Everything is cool, but I really love the notecards the best.

Here are the pictures of what I sent Linzo.

The water bottle cozy.  I designed it to be either worn around the waist or over the shoulder:

First aid kit includes band aids, aloe vera (for burns), and neosporin:

camp cookbook: cover

example of the inside (I had pictures of all the meals):

back cover (that picture is from my latest camping trip):

A cabled headband that ties at the bottom:

Campfire necklace, log done out of sculpy and the fire is beads:

This project didn't turn out the way I wanted, but here is the t-shirt front:


It seems initially she likes the package.  So that is good.  I had fun working on it.

lutheranchick, those have to be the neatest looking firestarters I've ever seen.  Mine are usually grey and ugly.

Myklia, I love all of the things you made.  I love the cookbook - what a great idea.

The "ugly" firestarters are made of eco-friendly recycled egg cartons though, aren't they? I bought paper cups for mine because I am evil like that. Also, I would have had to eat like nine eggs to empty the egg carton...

When in doubt, sauerkraut.
