Bag swap

Crafty Mamas November bag swap

The gals over at Crafty Mamas forum have a swap each month with a set theme. November was a bag swap and Krissy was my recipient. I feel the pressure of providing something that will be good enough and well received when I participate in a swap but that aside, it is fun!

I really don't like feeling that I am giving someone a gift that they wont like so I checked out Krissy's preferences- bold and bright. Not a pastel girl, our Krissy.

Pattern- Button Tote bag - Andrea Forstbauer

External- vintage sheet fabric
Lining- mushroom canvas from stash
Self covered buttons

Approval rating- seems to be well received!

It was a nice straightforward pattern and a really big tote bag. Could fit anything in there methinks!

Krissy has a gorgeous daughter Matilda so I made her up a little purse to stash her little treasures in.
Pattern- Bubble pouch - Keyka Lou
External- Fresh as a Daisy- Robert Kaufman
Lining- Party Time Cupcakes- Makower UK
