Tote bag swap.

Hello my quilty friends.  Today's project is a  tote bag that I made for a swap. I joined a swap group on FB- Crafting with Lisa Marie. You have to join the group to participate.  Have you ever done a swap? They are so fun. I love getting packages and when it is something that is crafty it is even more fun! 
So my swap partner told me she likes blues and green. I had a bunch of fabric left over from my first Meadow mystery quilt. 
I used a pattern that I found on Pintrest but, changed it up a bit to suit what I wanted to make. I did not put any pockets in the bag so I made a extra little pouch. 
This is the I-Spy pouch by Sew Sweetness. 
My partner loved the bag and I am so happy she did! 
Here is a photo she sent me using the bag.

and I will not go with out showing you the beautiful bag I received! 
Isn't it fantastic! Lots of pockets and the adorable fabric . I just love the buttons! My partner thought I could use it when I go fabric shopping. Of course I can not wait to go fill it up! It will hold lots of fabric. I had some goodies in my package too, sad to say they are gone, but yummy! 

partner even sent Guinness a present!
He was so happy! Sorry about the blurry photo but, he grabbed the bag and ran. I had to chase him around the house to get the treats back before he destroyed the bag and ate everything in it, LOL!
One more photo of this lovely bag before I go. 
Such cute fabric! 
Looking forward to the next swap in this group I had such a good time making my bag as well and receiving my bag. 
Thanks for stopping in and until I see you again Wishing You Quilty Hugs~Heide.
Can I get a Whoop-Whoop.
Lets Bee social. 


  1. What sweet bags, both of them!!! The butterflies are such a nice touch. And what great buttons on your bag, as well as the print. Nice that you added an I-spy bag!!! Make sure you magic link it to Sew Sweetness link-up on January 5, 2018. I haven't made the I-spy bag yet but I keep looking back at everyone else's photos to get ideas and inspiration.
