One tip on the bagsket if you do decide to make one, make the lining a bit smaller than the outer part.  Mine doesn't fit as snugly as I would like, which I was really disappointed about.  I have a feeling it is because I had a hard time sewing with the interfacing and plus, the outer part is so rigid, that it just doesn't quite fit.  I checked the fit when it was inside out and it seemed good, but when I turned it around, the lining was very loose.  Also, I went with the larger 12" inch one, and I think the 4" pockets were a little too shallow.  Next time (if there is a next time because my meager machine really couldn't handle the Peltex too well), I would make at least 6" high pockets. 

Here's a link to the tutorial, so you don't have to go searching for it.

i have this issue, as well - i think i'll cut down on swaps once these last few are finished up and try to work on my overwhelming wists (which are now more full of things i want to make than things i want to buy)! 

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

I received my second swap package from profavoray today!  Smiley
Here is what I got:

First we have a cross stitch kit, consisting of cross stitch fabric, floss and a handmade chart for a cross stitch design. The design is based on a Bright Eyes shirt (I looooove that band).
Then she sent a lovely bag. Although it is reversible I'm not sure if I can turn that cute cloud fabric to the inside, it is just too great.
And the other items:
cute little sheep stuffie (he is named Cornelius)
yummy sweets in a beautiful little bag
a knitted little bag
leaf beads
and a rose applique (ah, how I love craft stuff...  Grin)

Thank you so much porfavoray, this is such a great swap package!

Finally getting around to posting my awesome package #2 from Anya Kase...  She did a "the 50's were for the birds" theme because I love birds and some 50's stuff (housewife kitsch)

All wrapped up pretty -- (with a picture drawn by her daughter on the right)

The pic from her daughter (I interpret it as a giraffe, my favorite animal.  Isn't she sweet?)

Some of the loot -- paper bead bracelets she and her kids made (which actually served as the next for a cute crochet bluebird), a breast cancer pin that her husband made (it's an important cause to me. Her husband makes and sells them: www.pyrateswag.etsy.com), some AWESOME swallow earrings, and some cute ladybug buttons

More stuff! A knitting kit so I can make a cell phone sleeve that I want, one of TWO rockstar tea towels she embroidered with my initials, & a cupcake potholder

A cute bluebird she crocheted (she sent it in a nest, I don't know why I didn't photograph the nest, but it was supercute)

Cute ceramic bird:

AND (drumroll please), this AMAZING apron she made:

Isn't it amazing?!?!?!? Close up of the embroidery ("too cute to cook"), with sushi box and coke bottle button details!  And rad swallows!

The apron has this incredibly cool fabric for which she traveled far and wide to find:

Seriously, my jaw dropped, I'm so spoiled! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Anya Kase!

The yarn that I sent?  Or that I received?  The only sort of multi-colored yarn that I received was the cotton Peaches and Cream in "Shades of Green".

ETA: If you meant the one that I sent, I don't know what it was called, but hopefully SnapsAndDragons can tell you what the label says.  It was something that I found in the sale room at my LYS, so it might have been discontinued. Sad  Here's a closer look.  Maybe you can glean something from the part of the label in the picture.  Click the picture for a larger view.
