For many years, I have been crafting with a lovely group of people over at CraftMAD mostly cardmaking, but more recently I have participated in the monthly sewing swaps.
In February the sewing swap was to send 2 Fat Quarters to our partner.
The March sewing swap was to make THIS bag and send to our partner.
This is what Mandy made for me ;-)
isn't it great - I love the sewing themed material
This is the one I made for Mandy, who loves blue and loves her cat, so I decided to use the 2 FQs I received from Wendy in the February swap for Mandy's bag.
the straight bag
the bag all scrunched up - doesn't it look great
It is a REALLY EASY pattern too!
It's in the post and Mandy should have it any day now.
It was a coincidence that I came across this same pattern at the time I bought my new Brother sewing machine in December 2010 and had every intention of making it up ;-)
So I figure it was meant to be when it was suggested for our sewing swap at CraftMAD.
Thank you Wendy for suggesting it, and for sending me the perfect material to make Mandy's bag.
