For the IYP swap I made my partner, the fabulous loves2experiment, a purse inspired from her pinterest.  I figured out the patchwork dimensions all by myself.  Eeek.. math!  The colors were also inspired by her pinterest and I love the combination! This was my first attempt at a magnetic closure, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. 



She's a tea lover so I also included a matching tea wallet.

 The purse looks great and the tea wallet is very cute. You did a fantastic job coordinating the fabrics! Oh, and your cat is a cutie!  Wink

Thanks so much, everyone!  It's a color combo I wouldn't have dreamed of on my own but I'm digging it.   Smiley
