Favorite Colors Swap

Thanks for the push I needed to get a second opinion guys! Thanks to a referral from Karen, I have an appointment with a new doc in early August.

So, onto swap stuff. I sent my package to my partner over a month ago and forgot to post it. Duh to me.

Last month's swap was a secret one. No one knew who was sending them a package! We only knew who we were sending to. Sneaky, sneaky!

My swap recipient's favorite colors are pink, yellow, and white. What to do, what to do. At first I thought about making some kind of wreath with pink and white flowers with yellow middles, but then I saw this!

Holy cow, do I love this pattern! Its stupid easy and worked up in one evening. Oh yeah! One night projects are right up my alley!! I used a small amount of Caron pounder in pink. The lining is more of that flat maroon sheet (it gets around) and the handle is from Michael's. It comes in a pack of 2, but you only need one for this project.

I will definitely make some of these for Christmas. I think this is something my 20 y/o sister would actually wear, in a different color.

Everyone could use a hook case, so I decided that would be part 2 of my swap. I used the Aluminum Crochet Hook Case pattern by Priscialla Hewiit.

I made the inside as per the pattern but decided to make the outside with lined fleece instead of crocheting it since I had some pretty yellow fleece. I added a button closure and viola! It fits nicely into the purse.

Last but not least, I included Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful. With promotions and coupons I got this at less than half price!

Katoyia has 2 little boys, so I thought a book of crochet toys would be something she could really use. I also included 2 baby books for her adorable little boys.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Very cute projects! I saw that shell purse pattern too - I think it's so cute!

I hope the new doctor works out better for you.

The purse is awesome! Great swap stuff. That amigurumi book looks like fun. I think one of the patterns from that book is available for free from Lion Brand.
Glad to hear that you have an appointment with a new doctor. Trust your instincts! Sounds like a big huge pain to get another appointment, but your peace of mind will be worth it.
