Here's the back I sent crescentfresh. It's the first one I've made and I loosely followed the messenger bag tutorial I found on this site. She requested a messenger bag or a largish-type purse. I think it's a little smaller than an LP.

The person I made mine for should have received it on the 28th. I was just wondering if it got there and if it was liked. Cheesy

I got my purse from SParkie the other day and I love it! I haven't gotten to use it yet but it's great. It's Strawberry Shortcake, who I love, and is hand sewn Smiley I don't have any pictures, sorry. But it's great and thank you so much SParkie!

I'm glad you liked it. Cheesy  Here are a few pictures that aren't the greatest.  There is a pocket inside that you can't see in the pictures:

I got a really beautiful purse yesterday! It's a medium size felted (i think thats what it is, i have no clue when it comes to knitting) marroon purse with a button/velcro closure. It's super cool and I love love love it! I'll post pics later today! I think it was from ClayFaery, but am not too sure because there was no note and the return addy didn't specify  (I hope it was from this and not the secret craftster swap! Wink )

I'm so glad you liked it Kate! I'm always so nervous about these things. Glad you weren't too upset to have me picked as your swapee again. hehe.

 Here are a couple of pictures of the bag that I sent to is she an orange. It's a music duffel bag with sheet music fabric & soft black fabric for lining. It has a turquoise zipper for the main opening a little embroidery on the front that matches. There are 2 blue zippers for the side pockets which I put two 45's in.

I was really hoping my purse would be here when I got home today since Friday the 13th is lucky for me, and it was! The size/style is perfect for me to carry every day, and the color (black/gray) goes with everything. Plus the print is awesome. My camera's at work, though, so I guess you'll see the pics next week.
Thanks Iris! You're a super star.

i got my bag from crescentfish (i believe it is?), and i love it. my camera is currently dead due to a lack of batteries, but i'll definitely post pictures when i get a chance. thanks so much; it's really great!

also, clayfaery: i really hope you like the one i sent you. i'm a complete novice, so i know it's nowhere near perfect, but hopefully it at least suits you. Smiley <3

Hooray!!
 I just got my bag from bonogroupie! It's quite cute indeed. It's black crocheted, I think, & has hot pink eyelash yarn around the top & a hot pink eyelash pin. Loves it!

okay okay, I know I am being totaly slack about this so please, fell free to throw any hard objects at me that you feel like throwing  Wink I got my bag from IgJones about a month ago and I love it! It totally goes with everything that I have and is better than any bag I could ever buy!  Unfourtnately, I do not have any pictures of it now but I'll post some up when I get a chance! And the strangest thing is my cat keeps trying to get in it and claw it up! What's up with that? I walked into my room the other day and she was sitting on her haunches and chewing the strap! One word : S-A-B-O-T-A-G-E!
