Housewares swap package sent.

I assembled a housewares package for Readingknitter01 on ravelry.

I was sort of out of my element with this swap theme.

I made a grouchy couch in sage green and yellow. I thought it would be fun. It ended up being a lot more work than I expected, and I think I overstuffed the base....


I also made a hummingbird hot pad (which ends up being a double sided washcloth).



And a tulip wash cloth.


I also made a toilet paper cover out of surf blue malabrigo, which I neglected to get a picture of. I also made a little washcloth/doily for the roll to sit on, out of sugar'n cream violet veil color way.

And a french market bag that felted a little smaller than I planned.


and here it is pre blocking:


I also included a butterfly project bag I made, and a dark green cloth covered chinese take out box that I filled with random teas that I had in the cupboard. And a shopping list with elmo on it. Oh and a skein of chameleon colorworks sock yarn in blues and greens that I thought she might like. I was really nervous because I am not a housewares knitter.

I think the couch is cute in its own squashy way. The rest is nice as well. I like the color/pattern choice on the market bag.
