I received from Miss Barbara earlier in the week, and even though I took pictures as I was open everything... I just haven't had a minute to upload and post them til today.
Everything was AWESOME!!! I loved it all. The purse was very nicely put together and I've been using it for the past few days, so I know that its pretty durable. It's crocheted on the outside and lined with a cute glittery fabric. There is a fabric pocket inside the purse, and a crocheted pocket on the outside under the flap. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. My camera has gone missing, so I am having to make due with cell camera pics. Anyhow... Get ready for a TON of pictures to demonstrate the sheer awesomeness that is my purse and fillers from Miss Barbara!!!
Here are pictures of the purse and all the extras all wrapped up, and then unwrapped!
The rest will be thumbnails so that this post isn't too terribly long. I took a lot of pictures... lol.
Here are detail shots of the inside of the purse, the crafted extras, and a shot of the awesome beading on the zippered pouch she made for me. I can't believe that she does all her sewing by hand. Its is so neat and even and the stitches are so tiny and perfect! I do not have the patience for all those stitches and definitely not all that beading. But, it is awesome!!!
I have really enjoyed this swap so far, and I can't wait to finish up and get your package out to you, Miss Barbara! Thank you for being such an awesome partner, and I hope that you love your package as much as I love mine!!
Thanks to our organizer and co-organizer for putting together such an awesome swap!!!
