This morning I put the final touches on the tote I made for my mouthy stitches partner…
I had so much fun planning and making this. I’d forgotten how much I love doing swaps… The excitement and thrill of making something secretively for a person who understands and loves handmade.
Yes the thrill for me is definitely more in the making than the receiving.
I just hope my partner likes what I’ve made for her. There is always that small niggle of insecurity that they won’t. But she commented positively on my progress shot so I suspect this is right up her alley.
See the hand stitching? I’m really quite proud of that. Because it’s the first official hand embellished item I’ve made.
And I even liked the process.
Will this be the start of something new? Hmmm…. Perhaps.
But let’s not count our chickens…
It is one amazing bag – who wouldn’t love it?
I seriously hope this is headed my way!
I love it. It turned out so cute!
How could your partner not love it, its fantastic!
It is beautiful! I would love it, maybe you will send it my way?
gorgeous, lucky partner :)))
It is a beautiful bag and I am sure that your partner will love it too. Swaps are fun. I missed out on this one but I am still doing the swap with Amy as a Paramouthy stitches swap! Di x
It’s gorgeous Kat!
It’s so great! So so so great!
Oh it’s fab, love both sides!
So if I am your partner I will love it! It looks great.
If it was a vinyl record it would be a double A side – Absolutely fantastic!
While I think Leanne is deserving, I think you should mail to me instead!
Teach Hannah to do the handsewing and you are sorted! Gorgeous tote but I never expected anything less of you.
How could she not love it Kat? It is rediculously gorgeous!!
Gorgeous bag – your lucky partner…and after all that fun making the tote, something will be coming your way too!
Your hand stitching looks great!!! I am impressed.
Does your bag have bad words on it? I was quite surprised to see a few of the pouches in one of the rounds.
It’s almost TOO CUTE for words! Great job Kat. 😀
What a gorgeous, gorgeous bag, what a lucky recipient! And well done for doing some hand stitching too. It takes so much longer but the results are always worth it!
