Accessory Bag Swap ~ Gift Received

My first swap of the year is complete and it was so fun! I'll show you the bag I sent off to my partner next time, but take a look at the darling bag Mary made for me and all the fun stuff she put inside...

Accessory Bag Swap ~ Gift ReceivedIsn't this fabric just too perfect? I just love the colors and of course the theme is right up my alley! That safety pin fabric is my favorite, but I love them all! And the size of this bag is really nice, not too big but not too small either.

Accessory Bag Swap ~ Gift ReceivedAnd look at all the fun things Mary included in the bag: A journal covered with "M"s, a little sewing kit, a fabric eraser (never used one before!), a little pink ruler, a mini mouse pad from a quilt museum, the cutest little vintage-looking card with needles of all sizes inside, and a darling little sewing angel pin which I have worn since I received it.

Thanks, Mary, for a fun swap! Your gifts were just wonderful! And thanks also to Kris over at Dandelion Quilts for hosting this swap!

Next time I'll show you the bag I made for Mary, and a few others I have made since becoming hooked on these darling little accessory bags!

Happy Stitching!

  • This bag is darling - the fabric is so perfect for you! I am drooling over that angel pin - I am carefully studying it and thinking I should be able to figure it out and make one similar to it - precious angel.

  • What a nice gift Mary sent to you! I must confess, I giggled a bit over the two of you! She sent me an email that she had shipped and you were quick to follow the next day! I thought you were a perfect match! :) Nothing beats a great partner who ships early! :)
