Bag Swap

I have been true to my stash sewing commitment and so far this year I have managed to refrain from buying new fabrics.  Yay me!!

Well actually that is not entirely true.  I did buy a meter of fabric to complete my Aragon bag (pattern by Sew Sweetness) for the Aussie Bag Swap 2015.  But as that was for a specific project it doesn't count!

Here is the bag I made for my partner.

I tried to be true to her guidelines but as this was a secret swap I had to rely on Instagram and Facebook stalking to determine my partners likes.  She has not received this as yet but I hope I she will love it.

This is the very first 'real' bag I have made and although some parts were a bit tricky, on the whole it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be.

I made a little pouch from left over fabric and have filled that with a few goodies for my partner to enjoy.

Now that this project is finished it is time to start stalking another partner for another secret swap. This time it is the Aussie IG Mini Swap 2015.  I know exactly what I want to make for my partner so all I have to do is start pulling fabrics and get it underway.

Stay tuned.
