I made a bag for my best friend for Christmas combining some of her favorite things.

1. Strawberry shortcake- she loves her & since I had some vintage sheets lying around, I decided to use it to line the bag as well as the detail on the pocket.

2. Apricot & Hopsalot (Strawberry Shortcake character)-  We volunteer at an animal shelter & spend a lot of time with the homeless bunnies so Hopsalot made me think of that.

3. Orange & cordoroy.  Just some other of her favorites I incorporated with this fabric I found at the thrift store (one of our favorite places). Smiley

And on to the pictures.  I'm rather new at sewing and I used my purse as a model of what I wanted to make.
 
This is the front of the bag:

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

I love the stitching pattern you used. I've got that one too but I can never seem to find appropriate times to use it. This is perfect!

Really?  That's too funny b/c I used another piece of the sheet for a pillow!



Not the best pic of it.  But the other side is carebears.  Smiley
