Description

I recently joined a swap over on the Neverending Swaps Group. I participated in Better Swap Than Steal - and at the end of May everyone sent out their projects to their swap partner. Because I was out of town on an extended trip, I am a little late getting things posted!

Margaret (+Mymble ) made me an extraordinary bag using fabric by Valorie Wells. This bag is so great! There is a small inside pocket and an attached key ring fob, and Margaret went above and beyond by stitching me a zippered pouch as well. A sturdy snap closes the top so my stuff doesn't come tumbling out. Yesterday I transferred all my "stuff" to it for my shopping trip downtown and it was wonderful :) Thanks, Margaret - I love it!

I made a fabric basket for Jordan (+jcourtney ) using some of my favorite Bonnie and Camille fabric. I noticed she had "loved" many of these little baskets and although I used this pattern, I decided to use a mini charm pack so had to modify the measurements as the basket I made is slightly larger than the one in the tutorial. I added a stitched label for Jordan...and I hope she likes it as much as I do! I may have to make one of these for myself :)
