I loved sewing a bag to send to someone else! It was an amazing experience: signing up, receiving the info, trying to pick out something that you think they would like (hard since you don't really know the person), sewing up the item, then shipping. But, the anticipation of whether or not they liked it. Sending some extra goodies too... Just so much fun!
I already have some ideas for my next Swoon Sewing Patterns Coraline Clutch! :)
Here is what I sent my swap-ee...
Those handles turned out so much better than my first one! It's amazing what a little bit of practice and reading things correctly, does... (facing does not mean interfacing, HA!)...
And the goodies I sent with the bag: Butterfly zipper pull, cactus candy, post card, key ring wristlet, Arizona magnet and 2 fat quarters from my stash (not pictured).
I'm so glad she said she loves it, and enjoyed the candies too!
Here is what I received... I love it! Super sturdy and just gorgeous!
I love the zipper pull too!
And the lining is sparkly, how awesome is that!?! The picture really doesn't do it justice. But don't you just love the contrast between the light outside and that beautiful purple inside? I do! Not to mention the outside fabric weave looks like it is covered in a lace, love it!
The whole lot..
It was an amazing experience, participating with the amazing ladies on this swap. You ask questions, you got answers. All of them were incredibly kind and offered some great feedback. If given the chance, I would totally participate again!
