Details of swap:
Who wants to have fun sewing this cute little tote bag?  I know I do!  In fact, I already did, when I made the one in the picture!!  This is a free pattern from Wendi Gratz at Shiny Happy World; the link is here.

This is a very small tote, just 7.5" x 8.5" (big enough for your lunch, or a small work in progress, or a child's coloring book and crayons)--but it is a blank canvas for creativity!  You would be free to embellish it any way you want to match your partner's tastes (embroider, paint, stencil, appliqué, glue, etc) then fill it with goodies.  These could be store bought or hand made, or a mix of both.  They should be in the 1 to 2 point range, with a minimum one point’s worth of goodies (two hours or less of crafting time; or $10 or less for purchased items)
When sewing, please stick to the pattern size; but feel free to add anything you want to the tote (a pocket, for example).
You may choose to have one or two partners.

Please post to the thread at least once a week so we know you are still with us!

Remember to pm your partners and your group organizer when you send and receive, and post pictures in the gallery when you receive, asap.  

If you want to participate, send the following information to BOTH organizers; you can copy and paste this on the “send to” line:  “Leslieshappyheart”, “susanab”
