I'm so glad you liked the fabric, FlashleyAshley! It was tons of fun buying fabric for you. The Loteria fabric is indeed Alexander Henry.

After I sealed the package I did worry a little that you would turn out to be a "meat is murder" vegetarian and hate the tape! But who can hate such delicious sausage?

Stacysews, the tape came from Archie McPhee--they have an entire line of meat-themed products.

Those look wonderful! Love the deco job. I made myself a red velvet birthday cake a few weeks ago that was AMAZING--so maybe our recipes are similar? The cake was still moist after a week! (I am the only one who eats cake in our house...)

Anyway, the recipe I used was from the Joy of Baking site. The buttermilk really makes the difference.

Oh Ezri_B, I am so sorry.

Please make this swap your absolute LAST priority for the next few weeks (unless, of course, Craftster helps get your mind off of things for a little bit). Send outs aren't for quite a while, so don't worry about us right now.

Can't wait!

Thanks guys, I'm glad you like the bag!

The flower is really easy--just rip some of your fabric into strips, lay them out on top of a circle of felt, and use the zig-zag stitch on your machine to stitch randomly over the center of the flower to hold the strips down. Repeat for two or three layers. Then just add a button on the center and a safety pin on the back!

Joined, and looking forward to this swap!

Is it just me, or are smaller pieces of fabric less intimidating? It's like I buy 2-3 yards of a fabric I love, but then it's all in one big beautiful piece, and WHAT IF someday I decide I want to make a whole dress or 14 matching pillows out of it? I can't just cut it up for little projects, when I might need it whole and intact for THE ONE big project!

So this swap excites me--no guilt about using a little fat quarter! Can't wait till tomorrow!

It was sooo nice here in Seattle last week--in the 50s. But now it's frosty and drizzly again, but I'm still hoping!

I really love the fabrics and the flower, too...was that flower from a tut here?

No, I just made the flower up as I went along--I ripped some scraps into strips, tacked them down onto a small circle of wool felt, and added a button.

What a great tute! I love all the bags! It's amazing how the same basic pattern can turn out so many variations in size, band width, poofiness, etc.

Speaking of which, I made one myself! You can see it <a href="http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=150357.0">here</a>.

Thanks! I love the fabric too.

The bag only took an afternoon, but although the tutorial was great, it might be a little confusing for a beginner. Also, if you want a lined bag, you probably shouldn't start with this one, because I had to make that part up as I went along, since mgenevieve didn't line hers, so there weren't instructions in the tutorial for it. I would suggest that you look at the sha-sha dream bag or the Jordy bag tutorials for your second project.

I made a pleated tote from mgenevieve's tute here.

I lined it and added a matching flower brooch. I love how it turned out--it's small, but poofy, so it can hold a ton!



Here's a model shot:


And here's a shot of the pretty lining fabric I used:


Thanks for looking!
