i'm done!

My ITEIV partner's bag is all packed into a boxful of goodies! Monday morning it's off to its new mama! I really hope she loves it and everything I'm sending to her...

This bag was so much fun to make and put together. I still haven't tried my hand at felting (that might be next!) or at sewing a lining into a bag (that scares me a little!), but one day I'll try both.

more swap goodness!

I received my swap from the International Knitter/Crocheter Yarns-n-Stuff Exchange last Friday. Barb was my upstream and she sent me a box full of goodies! I got 4 balls of Sugar n Cream yarn in various colors along with a knitting book on making dishcloths. Plus some gummy worms, chocolate covered raisins and peanuts. I had some major hunger last night and ate the food stuffs already ;) so no pictures of those!

Next we have my bag from ITEIV, which is finally off my needles and sewn up! Right now I am working on the strap and sewing on the hardware. I am so happy with how pretty this bag is and I know my downstream partner is going to just love it!!

I am using silver loops for the strap and an antique copper buckle/ hook to close the purse. There isn't much of an overlap on the purse flap, but that's what the pattern called for. I guess we'll just see how it turns out when I'm done.
