So I know I've told you about these kinds of relationships in the past but I have another one. I have a love hate relationship with swaps. I love to join them because it gives me the chance to meet amazing people and make something for someone else. I hate them because when the project is done and you are sitting there waiting to find out if your partner likes it the doubt starts. Did I get it right? Will he/she actually like it? Will it sit in the back of their closest unused? Will it end up in the next box to goodwill? This is where I am at in the Goodie Bag Swap I signed up for a while back. My bag is done and ready to go in the mail. I changed my mind a lot about this swap. I wasn't really sure I had a good sense of what my partner really wanted. I didn't want to make something to small but I didn't want to make a huge bag she wouldn't be able to carry with her either. The inspiration mosaic had all different size and shaped bags but they did lean a little bit to the square boxy side. So I thought I would go in that direction. But as luck would have it I couldn't find a square bag I liked. In the end I made this one and I really like it so I'm hoping my partner will too. This is just a little peak. I promise a full recap including a link to the tutorial I used once my partner has received it.
Check back tomorrow for some other projects and updates. I plan to sew the rest of today and most of tomorrow because what better way is there to spend a day off work.
