Beware: this post is going to be picture heavy!  It has to be to show off all of the fabulous things that The Platypus Project sent to me!  Cheesy

First up is a picture of everything!  So hard to get it all in one shot!


My medium crafted item was a super cute bird sling bag.  It's absolutely perfect! I love the colors, size, shape and the pockets on the inside.  Not to mention that The Platypus Project is a superb seamstress! She also painted the birds on the wires on the zipper pouch. There's a coffee cup cozy which is fantastic because I work in a coffee shop and despite making tons of these for gifts, I've never made one for myself!  Roll Eyes  She also made a pin cushion/thread catcher/scissor holder that is great.  It's sitting/hanging where my sewing machine used to live. (Hopefully it will have a new resident soon!)



Here's the lining of the purse:



Four zippers, lots of magnetic snaps-I'm really excited to try these out I've never used them before and grommets and tool- also never used these before.  And LOTS of treats from Trader Joe's.  I have a serious sweet tooth and have already eaten quite a few of the peanut butter cups!



FABRIC!!!

Half yard each of these Michael Miller mushrooms and dots



Adorable Hedgehogs(1/2 yard)



and an Ikea forest animals panel (1 yard)



She sent me two books, "Bend the Rules Sewing" and "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World".  Both of which were on my wist.  In the beginning of this swap, I told The Platypus Project that I keep having dreams where I own a vegan bakery, but I know nothing really about vegan baking (I'm a vegetarian that often thinks about going vegan) or how to go about opening a bakery.  So she sent me the book, perhaps on a kick start to a new career?!  Cheesy



And lastly, I wanted to show off the amazing cards she sent along with the package. They were inspired by something on my wist (embroidered "Polaroids").  They're paper pieced Polaroids and I absolutely love them and want to figure out something cool to do with them.



Once again, thank you sooooooooooooooo much, Tatjana! I seriously love everything!  You have been an awesome swap partner!   Kiss

PS- I just noticed that spell check is back!  Yay!

No wonder you cried!  You were seriously spoiled!  But boy do you deserve it having a sewing machine stolen is just a terrible thing.   Really nice package.  Love the mushroom fabric and the bag.    Cheesy
