So I've been really wanting to have the make a bag and fill it swap again, life's been a bit complicated so I haven't been able to host, but I can now. Is there still any interest for this swap? Thinking of starting the signups in the next couple days.

I did this hoop quite awhile ago, but I forgot to post it in the completed projects section. Tongue

I would like to state plainly first that the design is not original at all, as it is one of those boxed gingerbread kits you buy at the store. The originality comes from the decorations. *If this is not allowed please delete my submission*
This was a family event I did with family on Christmas Eve. A three year old (my nephew) and a two year old (my son) also had a big part in doing the designs. lol. Nobody could figure out how to put it together so I took the role as "master builder." hahahaha I think it came out pretty cute though.  Wink

Details of swap: I absolutely adored the Giant Multi-Theme Swaps and would love to do another round. (Me too for that matter!)  Basically, this is a swap for people want to have more than one theme contained within one swap. You choose 5 themes of something, i.e. trees, tea, autumn, owls, and stars.  Your partner would then have to craft 2 lots of one large and a small for 2 themes, 2 mediums for another, 6 smalls for another, 1 medium and 3 smalls for another. This would be their choice.

Here's a breakdown of the crafting themes & sizes
theme 1: 6 smalls
theme 2: 1 large and a small
theme 3: 1 medium and 3 smalls  
theme 4: 1 large and a small
theme 5: 2 mediums

Examples of Sizes
Large: 3 hours or more; $30 or more in supply value, shawl, shirt, project tote, apron, set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie
Medium: 2 hours but no more than 3 hours to complete, $15-$30 in supply value, necklace, belt, bracelet, scarf, deluxe pincushion
Small: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete, $5-$15 in supply value, pouch, stickers, earrings, bookmark
.

You must be absolutely dedicated to this swap; it needs a lot of time and care inputted.  
Think carefully before signing up.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Recessed Tote bag with long handles on: March 25, 2016 07:44:55 AM
This is the first bag I ever made using my sewing machine. I'm really proud of how it turned out. The only thing I didn't like was the pocket on the front. The fabric was really thin, so I wanted to double it up, but it was really hard to sew through both pieces at once. :/ Overall though I think I did a pretty good job. (My partner liked it. and that made my day)

The front of the bag, with the pocket.


I'm really proud of this recessed zipper. Next time though I think I will make so the zipper does not come out the bag.


Inside of the bag


My partner loves flamingos so I added this cute zipper pull.


Distance shot of the whole bag.
