Working out the kinks...

Well, still working on the pattern I would really love to use for the SMS Bag Swap, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. I did finally find some great fabric for it this weekend, but I've only got two weeks to get it sorted out, made, & mailed. Sounds like a long time sitting & talking about it now, but I'm not quite completely happy with it yet, and I'm not going to send out something I don't love. I'll give it a few more tries though before I give up on it for the swap. Even if that does happen (and I'm really hoping it doesn't, because I really do like at least the idea of this bag), I'll definitely keep working on perfecting it. Until I make up my mind about it, I don't want to share too many pictures/details of it (I want it to be a bit of a surprise for my swap partner!), but I am going to share a couple small details I've added to the practice bags. I'll save that until I can get some decent pictures though (it's a bit dark now).

Just wanted to share a quick update, I hope those of you who are participating are in a better place with their swap bags! :)

Until next time...


  1. I'm in the I haven't started yet place haha. But I'm going to get going this week! :)

  2. Um, yeah. Count me in with the slackers who haven't even started yet. I have my pattern and fabric all picked out so that's a start. My least favorite part of sewing is cutting out the pieces so let's just say I'm planning to force myself to buckle down next weekend and do it! That deadline is creeping up awfully quickly.


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! :)
