I got my package from mom2blu today and I couldn't be happier!

First up, the awesome bag. I wanted something that would fit a book (or two) but still have room for a small project (like a crochet amigurumi project). This bag is the prefect size for a decent hardcover, and because it is long, I can tuck a small project in the top. Plus, it has a magnetic snap closure so I don't dump my stuff everywhere, and the handle is the perfect length for shoulder slinging or hand carrying! And, the fabric is wonderful, too!!


Then, the goodies inside the bag- mom2blu really spoiled me! She gave me a copy of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, which is great, since I brought my copy into school and it disappeared. Also, the book Murder in the Place of Anubis, by Lynda S. Robinson. I know what I'll be reading over vacation! She also made me 2 fabric book covers (that nicely match the bag Wink ) and 2 bookmarks of the same fabric (which I didn't photograph...oops!). And, she also tucked in some materials for a crochet project: a booklet of crochet patterns and a ball of Sugar N' Cream yarn!


Thanks so much, mom2blu! You are an awesome swap partner!

OK, so I completely forgot to check the gallery. I checked it when it was first made but never posted, so I wasn't getting reminders... yargh.

OK, so WOW, everyone, this is all so great. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that recycled sweater bag with the buttons and flowers, it's really lovely.

AND the green and black and white (I think) flowered bag, so gorgeous...

and the library/book store tote....
my goodness.

Everything is so great! We've got quite a lot of talent in this gallery, and I think it's only going to get better! Great job everyone! Grin

i always find my way back home.

thanks guys!! It didn't turn out as planned, but I was pretty happy with it! And the picture doesn't show it, but it is lined with the solid color I used on the book cover.

Ooops! Sorry about that! If I have a chance later today, I'll take a pic of the inside and a pic of the bookmarks Wink

I love the colors on this bag so much!!!

the bookmarks.... a penguin with "believe," a sloth with "wonder" [also, sloth is hugging tree.... it is pretty much me in a bookmark :-D], and polar bears with "dream." I absolutely love these, they're amazing!
