Kitschkween and Solorn - swap spoilers!

I made this on a whim the other night....can you guess what it is yet? ( If you're not a Rolf fan, you won't get that last bit *lol*) It's not just a pretty little purse in a blurry photo ( dammit, thought I'd clicked the macro button)
It's a doggy bag bag. A bag for carrying bags to *ahem* poop scoop. Yes, I am a responsible dog owner and clear up after my doggy. I don't always have a pocket for carrying spare bags though, and being a big dog, he does big poos. The normal doggy bags just don't seem strong/big enough. I tend to use medium freezer bags with tie handles.
There's a little popper tag at the back so I can clip it to my keys.

I finished Kitschkweens rainbow scarf. I made it extra long so she could wrap it around her neck and the clouds were made from little six sided medallions. Are they called heptagons? Basically, they're a variation of the old granny square. Only they're not square. And I'm not a granny. I might be old enough to know better though *lol*
I quite liked the lacey effect the medallions created.

I made a wand based on the
instructables tutorial. I'm actually amazed at how well this thing turned out! It's quite sturdy and looks pretty good. I just made it for fun with some waste paper from the printer. If only it was real, I'd use it to summon all the post that seems to have gone missing recently. I'm missing a parcel from Karan, Frosty, and at least one eBay parcel in the past month alone. Accio parcels - I think Owl post would be quicker and much more reliable.

I'm taking part in the Autumnal Colour Swap over on Craftermath. It's the first swap run over there for a while, I think I may have organised the last one *lol*. This is the first thing I've created for my swap partner Solorn.

Vintage gift wrap (I know it's vintage as I've been saving it for years because it was such lovely paper), embossed with her name on the inner, and leaves randomly stamped thought the book. I also glued a ribbon in as a place marker.

I like how this project turned out. I wish I had enough of this paper left to make myself one. Ah well!
