Yeah, I know, hey?  All the cute girlie things I got recently will just be packed away - good thing we're not planning on being done yet!

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

I hope Danirene doesn't mind me posting some pictures of what I sent her for her Angel package.  The bright blue bag at the back is for holding a roll of toilet paper while traveling.  There is a zipper at the back so you can pull out the paper without having to take it out of the bag.  And the little zipper pouch on the front is for storing hand sanitizer or whatever. Maybe danirene will have some better pictures of it.  I made a patchwork head scarf out of some project I started about 20 years ago.  I don't remember what I was making with it but it was about a 36" square of patchwork.  That was back when I didn't have much of a stash so I sewed up whatever I could get my hands on.  These were samples of drapery fabrics.

I made her 2 sandwich bags lined with recycled potato chip bags.  A sling for her water bottle and a washcloth.

And two Linen tea towels.

Coolness I love the use of the chip bags. I started a diet and I bring sandwiches with me to work now but I only have one wrap But I could make more using that Idea but with cereal bags.

I love the idea of using chip bags on the inside of sandwich wraps.

The toilet paper holder with a spot for sanitizer is also a great idea.  I think i will make one for my annual camping trip.

I love what you made it looks great.

Hi all - I do believe we're in need of a swap angel.  If you can send a package to Imagine in Canada, please PM me!


THANK YOU, tlh878!
