A few weeks ago I signed up for my first ever sewing swap. It's a bag swap. The girls that have signed up have each received a person to sew a bag for. No-one knows who is sewing for who. Some girls have specified their likes and dislikes for what they hope to receive, others have simply asked that the person sewing for them chooses a pattern and fabric they love and to have fun with it.
I have finished my bag for the swap. Since I've only been sewing for a few months I decided to do a trial bag and have since finished my *real* bag for the swap. I'm really happy with it and hope my person likes it. I am dying to post some pics and run through the love/hate relationship I had with my bag but can't reveal anything until opening day, Friday 10th July. Some of the girls in the swap have posted sneak peaks on their blogs but since I've always been able to leave the presents under the tree until Christmas morning, I will wait until the 10th.
