mwa ha ha I'm in and I can't wait to start whipping these up. I have to admit, though crochet is my first love, I will more than likely be sewing these (I have to get rid of some stash fabric here...) Smiley *happy

Haha. I wish I'd seen this swap before I embarked on my insanity - I'm making reusable shopping bags for all the women in my family for Christmas. 2 down, 8,000,000 to go.
