If you are a person who can never have too many bags, this is the swap for you!!

Here's the GALLERY


Morsbags are handmade, re-usable, fabric shopping bags.  The website will give you directions to make a morsbag, and lots of information and inspiration about shopping “green” by avoiding plastic bags that can harm the environment.  I have made a few morsbags myself, and I can say that they are easy and fun to make!  I posted a tutorial on my blog that you might find helpful if you have any questions about the construction of the bag.

The morsbag is a very simple, basic bag (with the exception of French seams!—don’t worry, you CAN do it!!), so feel free to add something:  what about a pocket for coupons?  Maybe some ribbon, or an embroidered initial? Be creative and have fun!

To round out the package you send to your partner, you will also make two small or one medium item.  A small item takes about an hour to make; a medium takes about two hours to make.  Stalk your partner and make something she will love.

Details of swap:
--You will craft one morsbag (using the pattern at the morsbag website) PLUS two small or one medium item to suit your partner’s tastes.  
--You will have 4 weeks to craft, from May 16-June 14, 2013.
--You have creative freedom to use any fabric, any embellishment, any technique you want to make your morsbag and the extras;  you are encouraged to put your own spin on it!  Just be sure it is something your partner will like.  
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

*PLEASE READ THIS!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important.  Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.
- HAVE FUN!
