Hiya,

Alo42d, the lovely Angela and I have both received our packages. Angela can't get her pics online so I will post some shots I took before I sent.

Here is the gorgeous bag she made me. There is a glasses case, a beautifull wee bag, and another handy bag perfect for my bits and pieces when traveling. She also hid a lovely bangle in pouch as well.


This shows everything in more detail:


Here is an action shot:

Thank you Angela for being an amazing swap partner!!!

Here is the stuff I sent Angela

ACK!!  SOOOOO loving that bobble purse!!  I saw something like it in one of the crochet books I got from the library.  At the time I didn't even want to attempt it because I was such a newbie, but that purse is giving me that "I have to make that!!!" feeling Grin

The bobble purse is really easy to do! I based it on this bag I designed previously http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/pattern-crochet-bag.html but made it even simpler.

I just started with a crocheted rectangle then added a fan on each end so it was curved. Added in a padded base (as in the tutorial) then popcorn stitched (http://crochet.about.com/library/blpopcrn.htm) myself silly.  With the oval base and the popcorn stitch I just worked in the round and didn't have to increase or decrease! bonus.
