Yea, another bag in the gallery. Nice jobTechnogoddess. Interesting fabric! I nearly moved into a rental house that had this patterned wallpaper on every wall in the loungeroom! It was a bit intense, but one pannel on a bag looks great. I love those klenex holders, I nearly made on for my partner, but our klenex open up a different was over here, so I would have had to do a redesign!

I love toile fabric like that!  Interesting placement!

Now I am so curious--how do your tissue packs open? Smiley

Great job, Techno... I think it's so funny how everyone's pets like to pose in the photos! As if the kitty is saying... "Something for ME in there?"
  The toile print is so interesting, especially used that way.Is that a velvet fabric on the sides?

Thanks!  The fabric on the sides is a heavy cotton, with a band of silky fabric for contrast.

Here's a picture I shot before sending off, it's the best I had of the side!  Showing that I made the front (and back) a pocket.  So I made the inner bag, and joined it with the outer shell.  Does that make sense?  I think it might...  Wink

 I really like the pocket idea! You can never have enough pockets in a purse. Great job! Smiley

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!!!
