Insane swap project fun!

I have really gotten back into swapping on Craftster lately! So I figured that some photos of my new projects should get posted.
So without further ado, here they are!

*Fabric book cover

I made this for a reading/books swap I did, it was pretty easy in the end, but it was tricky to figure out how to make it sizable for other books.

I decided to go with making the width part the resizable part and, by using some velcro on the back flap, it worked out quite well.

*Felt flower headband/necklace/bracelet

I really liked how this one turned out. So much that I am thinking of making more to sell in my newly made etsy shop (not yet open). You can wear it in your hair as a headband, around your neck as a choker, or wrap it around your wrist a few times for a bracelet.

Alright, well apparently I didn't take photos of the other items! But I am currently working on 3 swaps, so I will be sure to post photos for those....

I am also working on a knit/felted dice bag for my fiance (hope to see photos soon), a pair of knit socks from the book Knitting Lingerie Style, and various sewing projects as I have just gotten a sewing machine recently.

...New Projects...and obsessions!

So lately I have become really into beach or market style bags... and it has made me test the newfound crochet skills!
I just completed one bag, in neopolitan pink, white and brown, with a nice open network pattern. I will post a photo when I have a chance. The bag's original purpose was for me to use as a purse for Coachella, but I thought the colors would clash with what I am taking to it is now my new farmer's market and beach bag!

Currently, I am working on a black crochet bag that will sort of be a combination messenger bag/purse/backpack. I am still working on the design of it, but it is slowly shaping up to be pretty cool. The bag part is about halfway done, and I have to finish that, then make a flap and a strap. And I have to do this by tomorrow night. Yeah. We'll see if this works out.
Well I'd better get back to my crocheting because time is running out on this bag!!

Promise to post photos soon!!
