Some of you will remember that I missed out on the sign ups for the Mouthy Stitches swap. My bloggy friend, Amy had too, so we decided that we would do a swap between the two of us. Amy named it the Paramouthy Stitches swap. The only drawback about the swap was that we could talk to each other i.e. be mouthy, but we couldn't show what we were doing as it would have spoilt the surprise. We both posted our bags yesterday and this is what arrived through my letterbox today.
|My Paramouthy Stitches bag made by Amy|
This bag is awesome with little free - motion drawn birds on the front, with some lovely hand stitching that trails from the birds over to the back of the bag.
|Back of the bag|
The back of the bag has a rainbow colour block running down the middle of it. The bag also has a zippy pocket on the inner and a second smaller pocket for a pen and pencil. I love having pockets in my bags so these are just right for me. Attached on the inside is a little keychain clutch. Amy showed this on her blog and I just knew that it was for me! The bag is made of Kona Quilter's Linen in a dark grey colour. It is beautiful. The mosaic below is to give you an idea of how the bag looks inside and out. I had a real problem getting any decent photos as the light is so bad but I hope that you get the idea of how lovely this bag is.
A big thank you to Amy for such a beautiful bag that is full of small details that I love. I have so enjoyed doing this swap and deciding what to make Amy. Come back tomorrow and I will show you the bag I made for Amy.
