A while ago I decided to join the Super Style Bag Swap being put together by Sew Mama Sew...This was the first swap of any kind I had ever done, and I had a blast! I will definitely do another one. I got paired up with an amazing Bag Swap partner and I think it's safe to say not only did I receive an incredible bag from her I made a new friend. :0)
I was really nervous for her to get my bag. I normally don't sew from patterns, but for the swap I used the Blossom bag pattern by Amy Butler. It involved a LOT of cutting and ironing, but I was really pleased with how well the bag went together. I made it in a pretty yellow and grey print material...I loved the material, but I was nervous that she wouldn't like it as much. I just received an email from her saying that she got it and loved it...so I can breathe a sigh of relief and now post some pictures! I do have to say before I post them that the bag is not quite as dark of a yellow as the camera makes it look...It's a little softer. :0)
I have to say this has been a lot of fun. If you've never participated in a swap I highly recommend it...Head on over here to see the flicker group where all the finished purses are getting uploaded.
