Sew, Mama, Sew! Super Style Bag Swap

Come join in over at Sew, Mama, Sew for a Super Style Bag Swap! I've signed up & am super excited about it. I'm already thinking about what I want to make, even though I know I need to wait until the first to get my swap partner to discuss the important details. I'm definitely excited about this since I've seen other swaps around (hello I-Spy Quilts!), and this one is right up my alley. But you'd better hurry if you want to sign up, you have to do it by tomorrow (Wednesday)!

I do have the new Amy Butler book, Amy Butler's Style Stitches: 12 Easy Ways to 26 Wonderful Bags & am thinking about trying out one of the new patterns for this swap. There are some really cool bags in there (and a few styles that just aren't me), so I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I'll be sure to share what I make for the swap & what I receive in return.

And I have to give credit to Sourkraut over at Langes Fädchen, Faules Mädchen, where I found out about the swap. Thanks! And since I brought it up, make sure you go check out her fantastic Halloween bags (especially that last one. LOVE IT!). I've been thinking I may need one for myself, but somehow managed some self-restraint at the fabric store last week. And I really like these cute Doily Tanks which also sound super easy!

Until next time...


  1. You'll have to explain that self-restraint thing to me. I'm not sure I'm familiar with that concept as the employees at Jo-Ann Fabrics can attest to. Thanks for the shout out and thanks for spreading the word about the swap! I'm excited about this swap and can't wait to see what I get. Heck, I'm curious to see what I come up with for my partner because that's still a mystery to me.

  2. Bree I signed up too! :) It'll be a lot of fun.

  3. Sounds like fun! I've done a couple of swaps on Craftster before. Right now I"m starting to go crazy making stuff for my first craft sale! Yikes! Excited and scared!

  4. I swear it's not just because you said such nice things about my blog here, but I awarded you the "One Lovely Blog Award" on my blog today:

    Feel free to pass it along to 15 of your favorite blogs or just accept my adoration in silence and leave it at that!


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
