Thanks Hannah for being a fabulous angel!  My package arrived on the same day as another swap package so I was double happy.  And for my other swap, my partner was awesome, so don't let flakers keep you down!

Here's what I got!

The sketchers box she sent it in with pretty pink paper...

Table of contents she included (super cute idea) and the earrings and keychain

All the other stuff (I LOVE the pin cushion...i felt so out of fashion using the typical tomato deal)

Everything was green and beautiful!  And the bag is a "jean purse" with Bruce Springsteen lyrics on it (my fav and I just saw him in Richmond).

Thanks again!!!

I'm a lucky girl and received 2 SWAP PACKAGES yesterday!  I had to wait to go home at lunch to open, but well worth the wait.

Thanks a million avari20...you sent so quickly and I love everything!

Tons of Bias Tape and super cool skull buttons

Lots of Fabric, interfacing, some ribbon, etc...

Awesome asian inspired print cotton...I have another yard from this line and had nothing to go with it...now I do!!!

Thanks again, super fun!

3  Black & White & fun bags - img heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by imagreenegg on: September 02, 2008 08:57:19 PM
I've been sewing! 

The first is a bag I made for my mom.  She picked out the fabric and I got to sewing.  She's super happy with it and has been carrying it all week Smiley  Always fun to have a happy momma!

The second bag I made for a swap partner.  The swap is supposed to be over, but my partner flaked and I'm waiting for a swap angel.  Bummed about her flopping, but I was really happy with how her bag came out and I still wanted to share!

Kishcrafts has officially declared my partner a flake, so I am posting pics of what I sent to her.  I'm bummed about the flake-ness, but I still hope she enjoys my goodies!

She said she loved zombies so I found some great Dia de los Muertes fabric that seemed to fit the bill.  I made a black and white polka dot tote with the fun fabric as the lining!  I also made a matching coin purses...

The outside

The inside

And Matching Coin Purse

The other purse I sent is a clutch purse made out of neckties.  I used 4 different ties to make this one in her fav colors, blue and red.  I don't have a picture of the lining but its a great satin-eque deep blue fabric.

Tie Clutch

I hope she enjoys...

Thanks to Kishcrafts for keeping up and moderating all of this and thanks in advance to whomever my Swap Angel ends up being.

5  Lots of Purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by imagreenegg on: August 14, 2008 01:31:29 PM
I've been on a major, major crafting kick.  My living room looks like a bomb went off in the craft store.  My boyfriend ate dinner on the floor last night because there just was no room left for him at either table...whoops!

Thanks to the Jordy are her amazing tutes...her basic tute was the orginial inspiration for this bag.  I have my own moderately different system now but credit where credit is due.

I digress, I've been making tons of purses...hoping to start selling soon.

I try and never make the same bag twice and here are 4 new ones...

Green1 - running eighths fabric is just the best...it adds so much character with no extra work!

Green2 - the fraternal twin of Green1 (the other half of the running eighths fabric)

Red/Pink Paisley - the outside pocket looks like its crooked, but it's just how the purse was sitting, I promise!

Brown/Green Paisley

6  Tie Clutches - transformed from neckties into pretty purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by imagreenegg on: August 14, 2008 01:22:25 PM
This is a purse made out of black neckties and great red satin fabric for the lining.  A black tie purse, made out of black ties...I just love it.  I received a purse like this as a present and have always wanted to make one of my own.  I improved on the orginial (or at least I think so).  

I made another "Tie Clutch" for my 1st swap partner who ended up flaking on me Undecided  Anyway, the bag is cute and I wanted to share!!

The Black Clutch

The Lining (please ignore what look like random threads, I'd already cut them off but they snuck back into the picture...rudeness)

The Red/Blue Clutch

All comments greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!!
