Hey everyone-

I just got my package from Guin (yay for first time swappers!) I haven't even finished opening it all the way but started cracking up immediately.

We sewed items out of the SAME EXACT FABRIC.  OMG I am dying about this.   Shocked Grin

Ok, I am going to continue opening my package now and post photos.

Edited to add:

Guin sent me a fantastic group of stuff!  Int he background is a HUGE furoshiki (which I knew absolutely nothing about until she sent it, and now I think I may have seen them before) along with a guide to folding furoshiki.  This is so exciting and it's big enough to use for all my bentos, and I cannot wait to use it!  I also got two sets of really pretty chopsticks, a recipe for quiche, some dried cherries, a bunch of little cookie cutters, two cloth napkins, some pocky, some gummies (which I've already gotten into) and some of that silly plastic separator grass which I have wanted for a very, very long time. 

Thanks Guin, you rock!

Wow, this swap really is full of psychic twins  Grin. That's some beautiful fabric, too. Did you buy it in the same place?

Guin, did you make the cloth napkins too? They're such professional squares I can't tell. (And those folding instructions look really good. If you didn't make those, can I ask where you got them? Those patterns look so cool.)

Where are the cookie cutters? (Those little tiny ones are especially addictive, aren't they.) Are they inside turquoise rectangle is in the middle?

yep- the cookie cutters are a bear, noah's ark, giraffe, elephant, horse, lion (i think...), and star.  I LOVE cookie cutters.

I'm almost positive she made the napkins herself- they are sewn extremely well.

I got my fabric at Jo-Ann, she probably did too.  I haven't gotten to ask her yet!  I'm so excited about wrapping up my lunch all fancy tomorrow!  I don't know where she got the instructions for various wrapping techniques, but the bottom of the page has something about stopping global warming on it.  I hope she will pop on later and share the link with everyone.

Glad you like it, plumpossum!  Grin
I did make the napkins and I did get my fabric at JoAnn's (plus I got extra because it's so cute - I'm thrilled about getting surprises made from it! squee!)

I hope the furoshiki isn't too gigantic - I was following directions from http://mathomhouse.typepad.com/mommy_cooks/2007/03/furoshiki.html. It describes furoshikis and how to make them.

The folding instructions come from Japan's Environmental Department (http://www.env.go.jp/en/focus/attach/060403-5.pdf). They're trying to encourage people to use furoshiki for general wrapping and transport to protect the environment. I had to adjust the image because I don't think any printer has that much green toner/ink.

BTW, just need to say: litchi gummis are addictive. I tried one when I got them for plumpossum's package and had to go buy my own bag. Cheesy

They are addictive!  They're just mildly sweet, just enough to make me nosh on them unconsciously.

The furoshiki isn't too gigantic, I even wrapped my tiny bentos in it as practice.  It's so much fun!

And the pocky was gone within an hour of it being opened.

all of the kasugai gummy's are really addictive! they don't make my teeth hurt like normal gummy's do which is nice Cheesy my personal favorite are the orange ones though :3

although i really enjoy hi-chew, konpieto, and the various different kinds of kit-kats in addition to the gummys .... mmmm now i want some candy,... D:
