Help! Things that start with " i "

So I'm in this alphabet swap and i'm to put some stuff together for my partner in Australia--why do I always get partnered with someone from Australia?! hmmm.....well I'm having brain block and I can't think of what to put on there, sewing quilting and craft related that start with an I so I'm asking you guys out there for some ideas.

Copied right from her list....this is what it has to be:

(What is an alphabet swap you say?Well - it is quite literally a swap centred on letters of the alphabet. You and your mystery partner will both get the same letter and will have to come up with a box of little things related to that letter. There is no need to get too extravagant or spend OVER $30 - but be as creative and inventive as you like; you could include craft supplies, little treasures, words, foodstuff -ANYTHING! I know, dear readers, you are all fabulously interesting and original so let there be no limit to your ideas!)

My letter is I, I prefer to make things, I am already planning on making Ice Cream in a cone out of felt, kinda like a pincushion ice cream, and after that I'm lost. I can't think of anything that may be easy to make.

So your ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Does your partner have an ipod? Could make an ipod cozy / cover.

Icicles - can you somehow make icicle ornaments - do you crochet - I keep seeing crocheted icicles that are stiffened using that yarn stiffener.

Hmmm - I is hard.

A tape measure has INCHES
IRON-ON appliques
An IDEA BOOK of patterns or tutorials
Perhaps INCREDIBLY cute fabric
INTERESTING sewing notions
INDIGO or IVORY colored fabric
IMAGE transfer paper
Patterns come with INSTRUCTIONS
An IPOD cover
INSECT or IVY print fabrics
Pants have an INSEAM

Hi, Abbie! How about an 'I-vory' floral posie? An 'I' cord for multiple uses. An 'iridescent' colored piece of fabric? You're right, the letter 'I' is hard! Have fun with your swap!

Wow! I is a hard one. Who ever ccswch is, is mighty creative! OK, here's what I got... recipe for great icing, a jar with ingredients (for cookies, for brownies, or whatever... the kind that you add the ingredients and follow the instructions), hmmm, that's about all I got. Sorry!
