(It's pretty groovy to me that a bunch of total strangers can get together and decide on an honor system swap thingy like this.)
Here's the bag I made! Fabric is Innocent Crush Woodcut in Passion by Anna Maria Horner for the outside.
My original plan was to tackle a more complicated bag - but I needed to be realistic about the amount of time I would have to sew before the deadline. I bought the larger sized Buttercup Bag pattern from Made by Rae (the small version of the pattern is available for free HERE)
The lining is Willow Wren in Chartreuse by Alexander Henry.
My partner mentioned liking some owl print fabric that is in my stash. So I decided to pop some of it in the box with the purse as a little surprise!
Want to be inspired to make a bag?

I totally dig the whole SWAP idea. I want to do another one - so maybe I'll come up with one to coordinate myself. The question is, what to swap? I think a sewn toy swap might be fun....hmmmmmmmmmm.....suggestions?!?
