Okay, guys.  I think that what it has come down to is that I'm going to be painting on Michelle's bag.

She told me she likes tattoos so here are a couple of things I found that I thought she might like:

Or maybe some kind of symbol.  I know this is her first time doing a swap, so maybe one for "Create." XD

okey doke..heres my BEFORE bag.
i know i know, she's simple and bland and well....tan, but she's super duper clean and i honestly dont have a tan purse.  i NEED to join the tan purse owners.
or something.
i think this would be a pretty good bag to work on, real simple design and it really IS clean. the light color makes it easy to coordinate...kinda.  i'll shut up now and post the darn pics.

Okay, this is my first attempt to post a pic... supposedly my husband sized them appropriately, so here goes...
this is my before bag that I sent to Cheap Thrills... boring!!! a good blank canvas, though, the material should be easy to work on.  I like the shape and the handle, and it's pretty sturdy, the lining is also nice and clean and intact.  But it's so plain!

BUSTED! The original post did say tomorrow - but then I pulled my head out and remembered that the deadline is Monday - sorry for the confusion!!!

To make it up to you, I'm going to post the unbelievable package I received from PinkMafia today from the first round of this swap:



See what you could have sent back to you!    !Woot!Woot!!

As Eva (writer78) said I did receive her bag in the mail yesterday.  I'm really looking forward to finishing this puppy off, or as she said in her letter "make it stop sucking so much" She gave me a lot of great ideas to her likes and wishes and now I just have to sort through the mad scramble that is my mind and figure what route I want to take, tho' I do have an inkling where I want to take it.

I'm throwing my hat purse into the ring.  A very plain black felt(?) purse that I thought would lend itself well to prettification.

Here's my "before", ready to go to some lucky victim swapper!

I actually like this bag, but would like to see it, you know, jazzed up a bit. I think that the strap is a little too long, and definitely a little too skinny. There is an open pocket on the back of the bag, and the inside lining is black with a zippered pocket. I can't wait to see it "after"!

Here's the purse I'm sending gingerquilts, along with part of the ponytail holder & rubber band collection that "adorns" my every doorknob.

I couldn't get a shot of the lining, but it's really nice--well constructed, with a zippered section and card slots.  Not really a fan of the hot pink, but I think I can forgive that.  It's crocheted nylon cord, with embroidered flowers (also nylon) which are a bit ratty, and it has a little structure built into the sides & the bottom.  I need & like a shoulder strap, but--sheesh!--this one would have reached the floor if I hadn't tied it.  Have fun, gingerquilts!

  I scored an awesome bag at the goodwill half-priced tuesday sale yesterday.  It was 59 cents with tax.  It's a lovely black raffia number that has endless possibilities.
I want to go shopping with you!!

After all these challenging before bags, I'm starting to think I should have sent Racky the wicker football purse!  Cheesy

I got a different bag today, that I think my partner will have an easier/ funner (yes, I know that's not a word  Wink) time of funkifying.  I even got it for under $2 at St Vinny's.  Oooh, (shudders), vinyl straps AND trim over denim (who thought of *that*?).  Anyway, here it is:

I promise to send it of tmrw bobolink!
