This bag has the buttons! Lots of them and I just love it! This is more fabric from Jacquelynne's "Sewing Room Social". This time I used just five fabrics from the line. The mug rugs that I made and shared were done in all the pastel shades, no brown, no red but when you add the brown and the red ......... wow! what a difference it makes! The colors just seem to "pop"!
I took these two photos just before I sent this bag off to my swap partner. The morning sun was shining in when I took the one above, not so in the one below. So, who will get this bag? Well, it is on it's way somewhere but I can't tell you where. It's a secret swap so the recipient has no clue from whom she will receive a bag! And while all the swap partners have been assigned, you can check out the tutorial for this project by visiting QuiltingGallery where you will find a link to the tutorial by designer Geta and to the Flickr group where there are so many more cute bags!!
You can see in the photo below that this is a nice size bag. Yes, I know it says "basket swap" but because of how I pieced my handles, they got a little long and so this is more of a bag, than a basket. :-) I added a couple goodies and away it went in the mail this past Monday morning.
