I love the gallery so far! Yesterday I received from AStutler4907. This was her first swap and she is amazing!

I got this lovely purple (yay!) purse:

It has a couple cute pockets inside:

And now the fillers:

A cute sticky-note holder with a pen, chapstick, hand sanitizer, 2 crochet hooks, a sweet zippered pouch and 3 Doctor Who magnets!

I love it all! Thank you so much AStutler 4907!

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Yesterday I received my wonderful package from Whistley! For my first swap, I couldn't have asked for a better partner!

 I received this super cute purse! Pink is my favorite..and it's chevron!

It has pockets all around the outside, and 2 pretty big ones on the inside.

And the fillers:

A card holder, and a matching wallet with a pocket on the outside. Smiley

Gummy bears, Mentos, an adorable matching notepad, a cute little purse keychain, a handmade chapstick holder, cake batter chapstick, and a compact mirror/brush.

Everything was amazing! Thanks again, Whistley!!

Everything so far is adorable! BUT... prepare to be jealous!!

So I always list a ton of things on my "what do you want" list, to give people lots of options of what to make. I suggested, "Maybe something like http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/artsycrafty_babe/2009/06/the-people-have-spoken.html" and got:

A PHOEBE BAG. Look at that decorative stitching!!

Please tell me you did this with a machine, and not by hand. PLEASE. Because... wow! I've never thought to use a decorative stitch like this before, so I'm stealing the idea! And the straps look wonderful, don't know what you were complaining about.  Wink Next I said I needed a wallet, maybe something like http://www.sew4home.com/projects/fabric-art-accents/eclectic-elements-tim-holtz-coats-fabric-wallet and got:

THAT EXACT WALLET. With more decorative stitching on the inside!

Crazy! I also said I needed a tea wallet, and a little make-upy type bag...

...of which I got both, one filled with delicious, delicious candy and the other with a whole variety of TEA~ including a few Earl Grey, my favorite!!  Grin Then I said I liked big heavy zippers and got...

... a felt ruppe keychain (we're both Zelda fans!) and a... a.... pouch... made entirely out of a zipper. Like.... she took half a black and half a purple zipper, zipped them together, and... wrapped them... around.. .and sewed them... It just blows my mind, how do you do this?!  Shocked So that's literally EVERYTHING I put on my want list. Do you understand....? ALL OF IT.

Oh, and plus this:

A bear hat! Hilarious! I crochet/sell nerdy hats (seriously... like... I've probably made well over 100), but they're all a little too nerdy for me to want to wear in public, so I don't actually HAVE a hat to wear.... and now I do! Smiley

SOOOO~ Ninjaturtlegal, thank you for everything, it is all super lovely! I only hope my package can live up to yours....

Ninjaturtlegal Rocks!!! And I added that on, too. What wonderful stitch work. And a great surprise package. Love the colors, love the designs, love the attention to detail, and the fact that Ninja provided what you were hoping for....I could go on and on, but I will stop here. Wonderful job! Yea for you! Let's do the happy dance together, shall we? Get your purse!!!!!  Grin


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

What a bunch of gorgeous bags!  I received from felicitybaby, and I promise to post photos this week - I apologize, it's been a busy week!

I am glad you liked everything.  There is a tutorial online, I just did a google search for the zipper pouch. One thing, the little wallet didn't have as many pockets as I thought it would have and thought of a way to add more after I sent it. I feel silly.  Also, am I kinda blind, I thought it was pinkish peach to go with the snow flakes. Is it the camera or do I need to start listening to my husband more. I remember arguing with him over what cor that was for a good ten minutes lol.
