I just received and I love Smashergrl!

And I am excited because I have teeny hands and she didn't use a fat yarn (which makes it impossible to hold the coffee in one hand and say open a door with the other hand).
I would have used a fat yarn because it has never dawned on me not to therefore I have a gazillion unused chunky coffee cozies for people blessed with big hands.
Thanks a load Smashergrl!!!!!!!

I'm really glad you liked everything!  That bag really was challenging (it tried to fight me, but I won!).  First, I bought the pattern over a month ago with the hopes of making a new bag for myself.  I decided to make one for this swap instead - the only problem was that the pattern pieces didnt match the wrapper!!  the pattern is burda, but what was inside was a mccalls pattern! 

I had both fabrics laying around, just waiting to become something!  I love the combo so much that I am making a bag for myself to match it!   Cheesy  The little matching pouch has a snap (first time ever "installing" one - I broke the little plastic part of the installer.  anyone know a way around that?)

I never thought about the weight of the yarn when making the cozy.  I always use caron simply soft for my cozies.  I like the way it feels   Smiley

Thanks for the compliments bronzfrog and pinokeeo!!

Ok, here's my loot from Megami!  Grin

I'm SO IN LOVE with this bag that she made. I told her that I just got a bike and I wanted a messenger bag to carry whilst riding:

Isn't it beautiful! I really love brown and blue together, and I'm not sure if I told her that or if she read my mind -- either way, I really, really like it. Isn't that ribbon detail adorable?

It also has pockets:

and more pockets with a pretty lining:

Also, BUTTONS to put on the bag to celebrate my Craftster obsession:


(and yes, Megami, that totally looks like a ball of yarn!)

There was one more that said, "I run with scissors!" and it is really cute, but it fell apart and I'm in the process of fixing it.

And finally, a t-shirt that reads: Friend of Craftster with a little turtle like the one in my FOC icon up there:

THANKS MEGAMI!!! You rock Wink

Ummmm...ok, for some reason, I was looking at the "Pond Friends Swap Gallery" for this swap, and I was so confused why everyone was swapping frogs and dragonflies. I just now figured it out. Doh.

I love that bag!!  The pins are really cute too, and that one does look like a ball of yarn.

I'm so glad you like it Smiley I had a couple of issues with the bag but im happy with how it turned out and im super happy that you like it  Grin Cheesy

I was worried about the yarn ball 'cuz i showed it to my boyfriend and my brothers and only one of them realized what it was. haha but what do boys (who dont knit) know anyway?

the pin should just snap back together, at least, thats what its supposed to do... Undecided

Yeah, boys don't know anything. The pin does snap back together, but I think that there is an issue with whatever holds it into place. I'm going to glue it.  Grin

okay Smiley i'm glad its going to work out then  Grin (oh and i have to give credit to the boyfriend for drawing the scissors, i tried but they looked less like scissors and more like...3 year old scribbles Cheesy)
