missdolly is too kind  Cheesy her sewist skills easily better my yarnie ones- here are the pictures i've been waiting to post for far too long!

first off, y'all are going to have to forgive my crumpled bedsheets- i'm a student, we don't live in very pristine conditions  Cheesy

here is all the glorious loot- missdolly went completely above and beyond, i thought we were only swapping one small and one medium, missy  Grin

crafted and non-crafted extras first- a pair of socks with sweet little strawberries on them (you'll see their matching pair in just a second  Cheesy) a mirror with suction pads on the back which totally appeals to my goth-loli side, and some heart-shaped magnets and cherry airfreshner which satisfy my rockabilly-ness  Smiley plus some sweets, because sweets are always good!

well, one appears to be a monkey Cheesy the other is extremely fluffy and has tiny paws instead of spindly arms, and a long thick tail (which hasn't made it into the photo). everyone in my house absolutely loves these guys and i've been commanded to give them all a crash course in hand sewing so they can make some  Cheesy my mum, who's seen the strawberry monkey (i couldn't resist making him my travelling partner on a weekend home  Tongue) is also smitten and plans to buy a book and make some for her great-niece and nephew for their birthdays- so i think you're a success, missdolly!

things to keep my crafting tidy, which i am forever in need of! from the top down, a zippered pouch, a bag clip, and a crochet hook roll- the photo is upside down really, but i wanted to show the fabric from this angle because it took me AGES to work out that it's a thimble in the design on the pouch, NOT a dalek (who would be a little out of place amongst the buttons, zips, tape measures, and pretty flowers!)

here's a picture of the crochet hook roll all unrolled, so you can see the seriously stylish fabric- i've never seen fabric like it, it makes me feel like i'm a fashion design student in the 60's or 70's  Cheesy

now, i've had to get my wardrobe and top hat to model my apron  Cheesy i promise i'll get an action shot the next time my housemates and i get the chance to have what we call 50's housewife day and bake loads of cupcakes- or the next time one of my gamer friends needs a birthday cake (last time we made a gingerbread church, defended by gummy bears from the invasion of zombie jelly babies, and we've had a request for an aztec temple, complete with priests and human sacrifices- i should really post the pictures here on craftster!). the fabric's a little hard to see from my rubbish photo, but it's covered in cutlery, and the cutlery's covered in little swirls and flowers  Smiley the black lace makes it just un-girly enough Smiley it's perfect- as is everything else, thank you SO MUCH missdolly- and apologies again for making everyone wait this long for pictures!

edit- oops, forgot the obligatory cat pic! this is my beautiful boy ollie chilling with his new long-tailed friend (who really needs a proper name!)

OH     MY    GOD.......I JUST preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'RECIEVED.............THE..........MOST.........AMAZING') SWAP PACKAGE I HAVE EVER EVER EVER GOTTEN!

The colors, patterns, stitching, size, shape, construction....all of it....is beautiful....perfect even....and suits my tastes to a T.

Luckdragon made me a huge stands on its own tote to take all my knitting supplies with me to my knitting group. It has interior pockets for my needles, and a snap in pouch for my notions. This thing is awesome, and perfect for taking bigger projects along in. I sure do wish I had this when I was making my sweater....

AND as a bonus, she made a smaller drawstring pouch (in fabric from my wist!!!), for other projects! This is going to be my sock bag. It also has a interior snap in pouch!

I only wish I had recieved this yesterday, since now I have an entire week before my Tuesday night knitting group!!! The other women are going to be SO jealous, as I am always telling them about my swaps, and they were very interested to hear that the socks and hat were going to Texas!

Luckdragon-Thank you SO much! Words cannot even come close to expressing how much I LOVE these items! They will be very well loved.... I can't tell you how many times I have tried to make a drawstring tote in that same design, and wasted so much fabric doing it! I would love it if you could share with me your contruction tips, or do a tute on it....they would make great Christmas gifts for some of the women in my knitting group!

Whew! I'm so glad you like them!  The small tote was pretty straightforward - I could definitely do a quick tut for that Smiley - the large bag was a bit of a handful, but I was pleased with how it finally turned out.

Thanks for swapping with me!  The hat and socks will be well loved in texas Smiley

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Well they are both pretty amazing! I bow to your crafty talents!

Any kind of tute/or guidelines would be awesome! I usually have no problem constructing bags without a pattern....this one is just giving me major hangups!
