Goodie bag swap
I was lucky enough to accepted a few weeks ago as a last minute addition to the 'Goodie Bag Swap' happening over on flickr. At the time of putting my name in for the swap I was on 'bed rest' with threatened premature labour, was 6 hours from home and did not have access to my sewing machine. CRAZY .... how was I going to get this bag done ???? But I soooooooooooo wanted to join as I love bags and I love swaps.
Any how I manage to get my bag done and sent off in the time frame. My partner requested:
- bright bold patterns
- bright colours in red, pink, aquas - nothing dull
- a fun summer bag that was usable - no clutches.
I think this fits the bill.... what do you think ?
Front view - I used the Amy butler 'Style Stitches' book and the bag is called the 'Cosmo bag'
The back view
The side panel - I stuck to the red, pink and aqua them and used all colours in the pocket on the exterior and the lining
Not a great photo but this is the lining of the bag.
So my bag is on it's little journey..... I love the size and style of this bag and would definitely make one for myself. The only frustrating part of this bag is all the interfacing .....every single piece !!! I hope my partner likes it !
