As I mentioned a while back, I got my secret tote swap package!!! Thank you so much SewLindaAnn!
The first thing I saw when I opened it was a yarn basket filled with fun buttons and some cute washi tape (so exciting because I only own one roll!) and a very nice handwritten note.
The main event was wrapped in a pattern.
My tote is beautiful and blue.
The cats investigated it thoroughly, and both had to stick their entire heads in it.
I thought I recognized the pattern and sure enough it’s a very purple person purse. I’ve made the pattern twice before, once using a thrifted shirt for fabric, and another time I made a striped one for a friend.
Here’s the other side of the purse.
And it’s reversible! I think I’ll be carrying it with the pocket on the inside and this showing on the outside for now.
I really like all the different blue fabrics my partner chose. 🙂 Thanks again SewLindaAnn!
I’m mostly settled in to my new place (blogging this live from the craft room!) and finally got internet access yesterday so I hope to get back into a craft and blog routine soon.
