Cass, that skirt is beautiful -- the fabric at the bottom is great, and I love the lacing up the back. I especially love the shrinky bracelet.

CeruleanEyes, those fabric magnets are neat. And the keychain with room for just a debit card and license is something I'd totally use. (Your daughter is adorable, by the way!)

Thank you!  She would agree with you.  hehehe  She's become rather vain.  I suppose anyone would after 4 1/2 years of every person you meet telling you you are adorable.  LOL

I totally stole that from your wist!!  Thank you! Cheesy

Awesome crafting guys.
Love the skirt and the ragonfly earrings.
The hairbands are so cute and the butterfly stationary is just gorgeous.
My favourite though has to be the wrist warmers. They are just fabulous.

Great package, Cass!  I love the wrist warmers!  Did you recon a sweater for them?  If not, you have to tell me how you made them -- actually, if you DID, I want to know too!  They are beautiful!  You did a great job on every item!  Your partner was lucky to have you!

Thanks for all of the lovely comments guys! I really had fun on this one. It's funny that everyone likes the wrist warmers because that one was the easiest to make. It took about an hour. Yes, it's a recon sweater. I cut up the sleeve and did an over lock stitch around the perimeter and then seamed it up leaving a hole for the thumb! Easy peasy.

Ooh, what awesome packages!!!  Those wrist warmers look great, and such fantastic stationary!

Sewers are for ninja turtles--seamstresses are for sewing Wink

I received from actucker17 yesterday and everything is amazing! The package was well worth the wait. Everything she made was thoughtfully, creative, and professionally executed. Her package humbled me and you will soon see why.
my themes were;
hand tools
I love this headband. I am so addicted. I went through my wardrobe yesterday to find all of the outfits I own that will match it. It's adorable on and I am going to have to make a hundred or so of these now to match all of the other outfits I own.

She made this fantastic needle roll in the most fantastic fabric ever! It fits all of my needles and then some. I guess I have an excuse to buy more  Roll Eyes

This has to be my favorite thing. I've been wanting an apron for forever. I almost signed up for the Kawaii apron swap that is going on right now, but I remembered that I asked for an apron in this swap. I decided to wait to see if I would get an apron and sure enough, I have no reason to join the Kawaii apron swap now! I wore this last night while preparing dinner and I was so careful to not get anything on the apron, lol! Kind of defeats the purpose of having an apron but I love it so much.

This is so amazing because she has never sewn before this swap! And she executed the most perfect piping detail that I have ever seen! Ashley, you have some real talent for this sewing thing and I hope you pursue it further.

I also got this tres sweet felted sunglasses holder/protector. I love the colors she used and the handmade violin button is the most perfect thing ever.

Last but not least I got this jewel embellished tote with the symbol Pi. It's fantastic and looks so professionally done. I have all ready transfered all of my purse business into it.

When ever I participate in a swap I always think that the best part is stalking and getting to know your partner and crafting special creative items and getting their response to your crafts. Then I receive and the package always makes me so happy and I realize that receiving is at least as much fun as crafting and sending.

Thanks so much Ashley and thanks MaxParadise for being an awesome organizer. Pretty much this swap was awesome and I am so down with round two!

Great package  Grin. I love the old-fashioned bicycle on the bumblebee fabric.
