Katie and I decided we wanted to do a swap with each other. Well she is all fabulous and stuff and finished mine ages ago... She made me the cutest pillowcase and she cross stitched me " don't make me flip the bitch switch" and framed it!!! So I wasn't sure what to make her... she told me she would like whatever I made her (puuullleeaaasseee) hahaha well I hope she liked what I made her... here is the tampon holder I made for her... well she said she doesn't carry tampons around... well dang... so it now is a tampon/ pen holder... :( but regardless i love the little geisha I stitched on it!
I sort of didn't know how I wanted to make this... so I used felt and then used pinking shears on the edges and then added some velcrow for closure...
I also made her this tea towel... It is a pin up holding a telephone... I thought her hat was so cute... I used 6 strands of floss on her hat and really wished I hadn't, It seems too BULKY! but regardless I love the way she looks all sassy and stuff... and of course I added some giant ric-rac on the bottom... because I just love me some ric-rac!
I also made her an oil cloth card holder! I love oil cloth so much... So I am trying to figure out different things to do with it... this card holder is sort of "under construction" I don't like how loose the card part is... so I am working out the kinks... anyways... here it is...
anyways I hope she liked it... I really tried to make something she would like.... anyways.... other then that I have a few more crafty goodness I will post soon.... not only that I have a new RECIPE that I will also post soon.... and my hair post... is in the works.... I need to touch up my roots before I do a tutorial... I know I am so vain... but come on... I don't want to look like a skunk!
