Hi everyone!  I am partnered with Gina1gr8mom; this is her first swap.  I have been spoiled by Gina BIG TIME!  And let me tell you, this girl can SEW!

First - she checked out my profile and wists, and hit the bullseye in creating for me.  A bird house book bag - Look at this cute fabric she used!  It's also a lined bag, so it's really sturdy for carrying those books!!

pretty coordinated lining - I love it - polka dots!


Then, a quilted mug rug (stippled quilting!) with a pretty felt bird applique; some stick-on notes and flags - pretty colors; a felt bird pendant/pin - I'm pretty sure it would qualify as a felt badge in the Felt Badge Swap! (I love this little bird!); and two resin birdhouses that I plan to attach magnets to and use on my fridge!
 

And last, but by no means least, a pretty bird fabric hand bag - with wood handles - this bag is so perfectly made - just beautifully stitched - I love the fabric, and the accent fabric is lemon-lime!  Gina, you did such a nice job on everything  - but I love this hand bag the best of all!


and the lining ( and she made the handbag with a magnetic closure) -


Here's the whole lot:


Gina - you excelled as a first time swapper!  Such a nice, well-made group of lovely things - thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and for being so generous!  It's all perfectly made for me!   Smiley

Now I need to finish up my swap items for you and get them mailed to you!

 Cool

Ooh, you DID get spoiled there, fiddlegirl8!  It's nice that your tastes all have a summer-y feel to them!  I love everything you made, Gina, and I agree with Diane that the purse is truly awesome!  The mug rug is really pretty too, and the book bag is great and cute!  Nice job all the way around, congrats on being AWESOME in your first swap!!   Cheesy

Maybe we should persuade Gina1gr8mom to join the bird swap, you know, since she has all that bird fabric just hanging around!

Love the 2nd bag!

Great job for your first time swapping "Gina1gr8mom" I love the bird house bag & the other one is cute also. The mug rug with the bird on is real cute & the little felt bird is so sweet & all the extras!! Now you won't want to stop! LOL It's very addicting.
