I'm absolutely loving the jeans purse - may well have to have a go at one of those myself, also the sleep mask, I'd never thought of making those - but sure there must be at tut somewhere on here.  A fab package - kudos to Melinda06sue! x

Great things! I love the mushroom bracelet and the notebook sleeve. The microwave heat pack and the eye mask are so creative :-)

Wow- this is such great stuff! You are all so talented! I love the laptop sleeve- and I love the applique as well! And the knitting roll is so cute. You could ever find anything like that in a store!

Awesome job, Melinda & Torrent!  Smiley

Hi everyone!

I am so excited because I got my package from Sarah! I was completely amazed at everything she made- seriously, she gets a gold medal in crafts and creativity! Here are some photos of the things she sent:

The first small item was this adorable crocheted scarf in pretty autumn colors. She knows how much I am looking forward to autumn, and the scarf is totally going to be worn on a daily basis while I'm drinking pumpkin lattes and kicking leaf piles around. It is really soft and so unique! It is circular in shape so it can be doubled as a tube scarf or worn loosely as a cowl.

The second small item was the most stupendous pin cushion I have ever seen! I had a pin cushion on my Wist but the one she made was even better than that! It is seated within a little teacup that has a chinese dragon on it, and it came pre-stuck with cute pins. She even made two tiny origami cranes and sewed them to the top of the cushion. I don't know how in the world she did it. My old frumpy pincushion is going in a drawer and this will take prime position on my sewing table!

The medium item really blew me away. She made a purse/craft bag with a leather belt strap. She drew flowers all over it and then embroidered the flowers, which gave them a lot of dimension. She also included a pretty gold brooch  on the bag with a sweet note attached!

Okay, here's where things get totally crazy. The bag was packed with an explosion of awesome things! I had told her that I wanted to become a better knitter and crocheter, and so she gave a knitter's starter kit. She included this really soft ball of yarn that feels like a cloud, and a crochet hook:

She also included the knitting magazine to end all knitting magazines. It's from the 70s, and it is the most hilarious thing ever. Seriously, I wish I could make photo copies of all the pages and share them with the whole class. Each photo is of a glamourously feathered- hair woman in bright blue eyeshadow and crazy sweater vests. There is also a section of cardigan sweaters for the manly man in your life:

They are major hotties, right?  Wink In case you can't read it, the post-it says, "Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" I was cracking up at all her notes!

She also included a bonus craft in the package. It is a charm bracelet with cute little bird and owl charms! I am going to wear it every day! What's even cooler is that she recycled the chain from another piece of "jewelry" that had broken.   Wink This girl is amazing!

I am mailing my package to Sarah tomorrow, and I hope she likes it! I was really touched by all the hard work she put into this, and I'm so happy to have completed my first swap with such an awesome partner!

THANKS, SARAH!!!  Cheesy
