Paramouthy Stitches sent

Yesterday I promised to show you the tote that I sent to Amy as part of the Paramouthy Stitches swap.
Well here it is…

Side one
Side two
I decided that I would do wonky stars as they featured quite prominently in Amy's mosaic. I had always wanted to do the 12" block of three stars and I enjoyed doing it. The little star is only 3" square so my accuracy skills had to be sharpened up!
Detail of little star
I used a text fabric (Crab Shack) as the background fabric and lined the bag with an aqua fabric.
Inside the bag
I also inserted a zipped pocket as I think that they are handy. Finally, I made a simple key ring, copying the one that I had received from Liz as it is the best keyring I have ever had and I thought that it may also work for Amy.
So that is the Paramouthy Stitches Swap completed. I really enjoyed it and a big 'thank you' goes to Amy for doing it with me.
