Swaps Are FUN!

Zipper Pouch Swap 2012

I recently participated in a zipper pouch swap put together by Heather Valentine from The Sewing Loft.  The only thing my swap partner really knew was that I liked bright colors.   I first opened my package to find she took the time to wrap the pouch in pretty tissue paper (bright yellow of course) and tied a cute bow around it.  Being the girly girl I am – of course that  instantly made me smile.  After all, presentation is everything isn’t it?  Then I unwrapped it and saw this adorable bag – its like she had known me for years!    She wrote in her note (that was on the cutest handmade card) that she picked the brightest fabric in her stash –  its perfect!  Definitely my kind of colors.  She even filled the pouch with extra goodies such as a business card holder, scissor case with the cutest pair of little scissors and a matching key chain.   She really outdid herself – thank you Mary Ann!  You are a FABULOUS swap partner!!

Camilla Bag ~ Sew Serendipity/Kay Whitt

This is the Camilla Bag from Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt.  I have had this on my “to make” list for a while now and finally found the perfect fabric for it.  I think the ruffles added a nice girly touch to the bag.  It is a fabulous pattern and can be made in several different sizes.  The one pictured above is the large tote.   It was made especially with my Mother in mind for Mother’s Day.  She is so fun to sew for and like any good Mom, acts like she loves everything I make for her.  The picture below is the inside of the tote showing the embroidery.   I used a combination of designs from JuJu.

My Dad took this picture of my adorable Mother posing with her new bag – you look cute Mom!  Love the matching jacket!
