Do you mean something like a market bag? If so, I know that there's a pattern for one is some book that I bought a while ago. I'll try to dig it out.

Did you make a granny square pin cushion? I saw one somewhere and they are awesome.
I really need to learn to crochet!

Well, I was thinking if I joined I'd try to make one of those super cute cable clutches with the dowel handles?  There's a post on the knitting board about a mile long, and I discovered recently that cables are quite simple.
I can also crochet those net shopping type bags--they are pretty easy.
That Isabeau bag is really cute, and looks to be a useful size as well.
I'd really like a felted bag. For some reason I'm chicken to try it myself.

We're up to 10 swappers! It looks like we have a good mix of beginners and more advanced knitters/crocheters.
I thought that we could start posting links to bag patterns that we've found. What do you guys think? Will it make the thread way too long? If so, you guys could pm or email links to me and I could post them on a page in my blog so that everyone has a good pattern resource.

I've added more links to the first page.
Sorry guys--I don't crochet, so I don't know of a lot of crocheted bag patterns.

I've started matching partners! I may have to do some rearranging as more people join,
but so far I think it's going to work out pretty well.

Ack!  Too many things to sign up for.  Too many things I want to do.  Too many ideas.  Too much stash.  My head is going to explode.  Is it cheating if I already have three purses that need good homes?  I made them for something else and they never got used and now they need to find a good home.

i dont think it's cheating, as long as the person you get wants something along the lines of the purse! (i dont think that made sense, but you get my drift)

i cant wait to get my partner! yay!

i think she was going to pm us on the 10th check our progress, we send and confirm to her we have sent on the 20th. I pm'd her myself and said i was started. So maybe everyone just do that, she is probably busy. cheers cyndiq

I was kinda looking for a PM too, but didn't get one so I figured I'd check in on the thread.

I've got the bag knitted and managed to keep it out of the hands of the greedy people who saw me knitting on it.  :D Just gotta do the dreaded seaming/finishing etc.

Here's hoping greenveggie likes it as much as my hubby, mother, the people at the doctors office, my daughter, etc, etc. Oh the hazards if KIP'ing.  ;)

No, you guys were right! Check in was supposed to be the 10th, but I haven't been able to get on much recently. Some of you have already pm'ed me--sorry that I'm a little behind! So, you can post progress here or pm me. And you can send out anytime between the 20th and the 30th!

I'm actually still wavering a bit on what to make. I have two bags started, but I can't decide which to finish!

Ooo... If my bag has generated that much buzz, I can't wait. 

I was kinda almost finished before we started, so I've been just working on other swaps.  I almost forgot how close it's getting.

Cindyq~

A bunch of knitting craftsters made that same purse and so here is a link to thier thread:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42888.70

That will take you to page 8 of the thread where someone posted a pattern she came up with and someone else posted another pattern on page 9 I think so check them both out. They make sense to me for the most part ;)

I should be sending on Saturday. I'm waiting on something I need to buy to add to the bag and it goes on sale (50% off) on Friday (they told me when I was going to buy it today that I should wait lol). So I should be able to sew it on and send.

I'll be sending it tomorrow. Putting the finishing touches on it tonight, including a little surprise that my mom (a crafter too!) told me that I needed to slip inside of it.  ;)

I can't wait til my boyfriend gets off work so I can show him that lol.


Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

Ok everyone, I've updated the list! I'm sorry that I haven't been on much lately. Things have been kind of hectic. If you haven't pm'ed me with a DC or to let me know that you'll be late, please do so as soon as you can. I'm actually running a bit late myself (I know, a horrible example...), so just let me know if you are having any problems. And don't forget to post in the gallery when you receive your bag!

So far, we've had great communication and I don't forsee any flakers! Thanks for being great swappers--I know that I'm far from a perfect organizer/swapper, so thanks for being understanding as well!

Everyone has sent and received! Thanks for making this a great first swap for me as an organizer! I've heard horror stories about organizing, but you guys were really easy. You should all have positive feedback now, so if you don't please let me know and I will fix it ASAP. Don't forget to post your photos!
