Bye, bye bag!

This is the finished bag I made for ********* in Linda's bag swap.
I hope she likes it.

I felt really sad to see it go. I just hope it arrives safely and that the mail services in both countries look after it well.

Here is the back. I didn't have time to do the same stitching as on the front so did this design. It is from a quilting stencil I have.

I bought these fabrics to make a birthday pressie for my Dad. It felt strange buying this colour pallette as I'm a girlie colour type of girl. I didn't think he would appreciate pink though! I'll show you what I made in my next post as I can't get the camera to load onto the computer. Hubby is off playing football and I need him to sort it out - as he does with most things!

wowee - that bag is absolutely fantastic - all my favourite colours!! whoever is receiving it is very, very lucky!


Rachel said...

I agree, that bag is stunning! Will be interested to see what you make for your dad (I've been at a loss so far to come up with any present ideas for men!)

Stephanie said...

Beautiful bag! And I really like the color palette you bought for your dad's quilt. Can't wait to see what you make.

Jude said...

Congratulations, beautiful bag, such coordinated colours, lucky person who receives it. Can I ask where did you get those lovely colours from for your dad's quilt. I'm still sourcing fabric, some companies either don't send to Crete or are incredibly expensive.
Take care
