I love that fabric - it's so cheery!

When I opened the box I was so excited because that fabric was my favorite from the Love line!

EXCELLENT!!! I'm not a big Amy Butler fan, but I thought that fabric was actually not bad, and it grew on me as I worked with it. But I knew you would enjoy the extras much more than me. How awesome that I picked your favorite and didn't even know it!

So... my package shows received last monday.  I don't know what happened as my partner hasn't been signed into craftster for a while.  Hopefully she's still around! But I wanted to post the stuff I made anyway.

Warning, there's a lot of pics because I kind of made a lot of stuff Smiley

I made a messenger bag out of Amy Butler fabric.  It was the pattern she requested.  At the beginning, I really didn't especially like it, but it grew on me.  Smiley 

Here's a few more showing different parts of it.

i had never done an inner pocket like that before.  I messed it up so many times and then it wasn't centered but by then I was like WHATEVER IT LOOKS FINE. 

Then I made a wallet from the same color scheme, but not the same fabric:

A zipper pouch from the AB again:

A tissue holder:

A Tea wallet:

A coupon holder:

A keychain:

And a crocheted apple cozy and chapstick cozy:

there were also some extras like some pens and notepads that I stuck in the coupon holder like for grocery lists and that sort of thing. 

Hope she liked it.

Actually received from mindboggld last Tuesday, but waited until I shipped today before opening.  It was worth the wait, because mindboggld sent a wonderful package.  I love everything and intend to put it all to good use.  On to picture-y goodness ...

The whole lot:

The beautiful bag (she "got" my colors).  Note the flower ... .  It is actually a removable pin:

Inside the bag:

Make-up bag, wallet, tissue holder and cell phone cozy:

Zipper pouch, personalized notepad, embellished pens and pencils, fabric scraps:

Favorite snacks:

Thank you, mindboggld!  I love everything!
