Ros of Sew Delicious and this round was hosted by Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts. Alyce totally outdid herself because she assigned me the BEST SWAP PARTNER EVER- Cat from cat&vee!
I've known Cat from Instagram and the bloggy world (she was in a swap I hosted last year) for a while now so I was over the moon that we got assigned to each other. :) Cat has a love of color and all things patchwork so I knew immediately that I would make her something scrappy!
a drawstring bag using Jeni's pattern; I tweaked it just a bit to add a bottom and added some decorative stitches as well.
measuring tape twill tape from Little Red Cottage on Etsy.
Here's her pouch, ready to be shipped!
Cincinnati Chili- she's promised me a video of her first bite. :)
I had so much fun making this for Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But, holy cow, look what she made and sent to me!
|I know what I'll be for Halloween this year.|
Anywho, can you believe the lovely pouch that she made me?!
She used fabrics from Melody Miller and Denyse Schmidt- two of my favorite designers! The woman in the picture is Melody's grandma; isn't she beautiful? Cat put her as the cover of the patchwork book on the pouch- don't you love the little green corners of the book and all the hand stitched details?
This pouch is REALLY big too; I have big plans to stuff it full with cross-stitch for our upcoming vacation to The Outer Banks. :)
Here's the back of the pouch-
As is this lovely details- measuring tape twill tape, just like I added on her pouch. :)
This swap was so much fun to participate in; I hope there's a third round! If you haven't joined a swap before, you should consider joining! They're tons of fun and a great way to meet new people. :)
