 The weather is getting warmer and the forest is starting to wake up from its winters nap. Foxes and owls are scurrying about while being watched intently by the fairies and gnomes. Now is the perfect time to celebrate this.
 Bring your love of Woodland Creatures and Enchanted Forest alive in a craft swap! This swap will be for 1 Medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please communicate this with your partner.
 There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

 No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don’t sign up.
 If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let us know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post up on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let us know.

 Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.
 PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

 Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures if everything you send just in case.

The octopus bag went to Luckdragon. She had the fabric pinned to her board so I hope she really liked it. My mom asked for one like it and I said, "the octopus?". She didn't notice them either.  Wink

Battle/Challenge:  May Mob - Mother's Day
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: ---
Project Name: Mother's Day Purse
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433429.0#axzz31Rb6JQEH
Brief Description: I have been sewing for a while and just recently my Mom asked me for a purse. I feel like a threshold has been crossed. LOL! She really liked the octopus bag I made until she noticed the octopus.  Tongue  So we went to the fabric store and she picked out some pretty batik fabric so I could make her one. This was her Mother's Day present. I told her I wouldn't have it done in time and surprised her today.

 My Mom saw the other purses that I made and asked me to make her a purse for Mother's Day. She has never asked for a purse before so I was really excited to make her one. We went to the store and she picked out the fabrics. I thought they were very pretty. I told her I wouldn't get the zippers in on time but I did (thank you zipit zippers!) and was able to have it finished and surprise her.  Grin
 I gave it to her about an hour ago and she was surprised and really liked it.

 The wall is light blue so it makes the colors a little weird.

 Here is the outside pocket with the magnetic snaps.

Outside in the garden, liked the colors better out here.

and with the straps down...

 I already have my next bag picked out. I can't wait to do another pattern. LOL!
 Thanks for looking.  Smiley

 Ah, that was so sweet Jo_mama. I would swap with you anytime!
 Got the pattern from Annie's. It's called "A Cute Bag" and it's by Wonder Woman Quilts. I just finished cutting out my Mom's purse and I swear I have no idea why it gave me such a fuss the first time. Huh It really is a simple pattern once you know what you're doing.

 I got both fabrics off Etsy. The coordinating fabrics are from Jo Ann Fabrics.
 I really enjoy making purses even though I have never managed to make one for myself.  Tongue

 I made these two purses for recent swaps. The pattern is pretty simple but I had the hardest time understanding it at first. I was told it was written for quilters and I have never quilted so I found it really confusing. Also there was only one pattern piece and you had to measure everything else out yourself. That drove me bonkers. After I figured out the first one the second one went WAY quicker and was worlds less frustrating.
 The first one was for the IYP swap and it is a damask fabric with octopus on it. The patterns called for the fabric over the zipper and the fabric under the zipper to be different with different colored zippers on each side. I thought it looked a little classier with the same fabric above and below the zipper. One side has the cream zipper the other a matching blue. There are two pockets on the outside and then two additional zippered pockets out there. The inside had a pocket too.

I borrowed these pics from my partner, Luckdragon.

Blue zipper side

Front Pocket


 For this one I for the Fairy Tale swap and made the outside pockets a little taller to get more of the Alice in Wonderland fabric in. Both straps are adjustable and this one has the same colored zipper on both sides.

and this one is from Cryssoleil's posting too.

 My mom really liked them both an asked that I make her one for Mother's Day. She picked a beautiful batik fabric and I will post that one up when I get it done.
  Thanks for looking!
