 My sisters birthday is in April (& so is her name) and I wanted to make her presents this year. I did my first swap about a month and a half ago and it was the make a purse and fill it swap. I had a lot of fun doing it so I decided to keep to the same requirements and make one for her. She recently changed her style and asked for something in purple or orange and with bats or spiders. This is what I chose to do...
 She likes messenger bags... I used napkitten pattern Swift Summer.



open. The inside has a zippered divider.
These are the extras I included...

matching coin purses

I added a book inside the bag and made this bookmark to go with it.

secret pocket pillow bat

with his mouth open

and fridge magnets!
  I can't wait to give it to her! C&C welcome!
 Now that I am finished I can start working on my next swap. Swapping is addictive!

Wow! that bag is beautifully constructed, and I love the fabric and all the extras. If she doesnt like it, a) shes crazy and b) send it to me ;P


Looking for a custom stamp, would love to swap!

You have a very lucky sister. That's a really awesome bag, and the extras are really well done as well.

Love it! The best bags are the ones sturdy enough to stand on their own and it is easy to see you did a great job on this one. The adjustable strap is a nice touch. Also the little bat is so cute with his hidden fangs Cheesy

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Such an awesome bag. Great construction and material. I especially love the little bat with the zippered mouth. I would love to be your swap partner.

This is really great- it looks utterly professional and I especially like all the matching stuff that comes with it! The extra bat-bag is amazing =)

That is fantastic!   The messenger bag looks beautifully made, and that is great fabric!  The spiderweb zipper pull is a really nice touch, too. ^_^  And all the adorable extras you made!  I am so jealous of your sister!
