Secret Tote Swap

It's been a busy week of sewing, cleaning, working,
yadda, yadda, yadda...

Like a crazy woman,
I participated in another swap.
to be exact.
This lovely swap was hosted by

Lucky for me, my partner loves
Denyse Schmidt fabrics.
Here are a few photos of the tote I made,
which is the Jane Market Bag.
(LOVE this bag!!)

The beading I had added a little bit of a vintage flair to it.

I was very pleased with how it all turned out.
Simple yet elegant.

It was our choice to send extras.
My partner in this swap was rather quiet,
so I really scoped out her Flickr photostream to 
get and idea of the fabrics and colors she liked.
I'm pretty sure I know why she was so quiet.
The tote she made was gorgeous,
so I'm sure she was busy creating.
And I can't share anything about my partner
as I just shipped my package today,
so she doesn't know this is hers yet.

I sure hope she likes all the extras,
like this little hand made 'inspire'

And the scraps of twill
and ribbon

Also included are some fat quaters and fat eighths. 

So, little package, travel safe!
I really hope it makes my partner happy!!
