Craft Forum bag swap

Have I ever mentioned b4 how much I love bags, I haven't, WELL.................. I LOVE BAGS. You can never have enough bags can you. Or the right bag, the right size, colour, mood reflecting, etc etc etc.

So with that in mind I joined the Craft forums bag swap. I swapped with Linda, who made me one of my favourite bags in another swap some years ago.

Anyway here is the bag I made for Linda. She wanted shabby chic, i think I delivered. This bag simply came out of my head. Found strip of fabric, lace, braid & ric rac to co-ordinate and started sewing.

Linda nearly did not get this bag as I loved it, as did my quilting group friends.

AND this is the bag that Linda made for me. I swear this lady must have met me somewhere along the line AS this is the perfect bag for me. Doesn't it have Gail written all over it. Actually, just be quiet for a moment, sit really really still and you will hear it quietly call my name, Gail Gail.

I really love this bag as I speak it is sitting, all filled waiting for me to take it to work with me.

Thank you Linda for being a great partner and making me the BESTEST bag ever.

Linda & I have also been paired in the upcoming cushion swap. I can't wait, I love cushions too.
