Scrappy Swap... Sorted...

When Kat announced a few weeks back that she was going to be running a low-stress scrappy swap, who was I to resist?

Now I love mama-ing the Mouthy Stitches swap, despite the swearing which may appear to the contrary, (stop sniggering Susan & Cindy), but it sure is lovely to let someone-else take the strain.

When I received my (lovely) partner's details, I was easily able to pull a bundle of scraps which I hope are to her liking, OK it may be a bit more than an FQs-worth, (but who's measuring?), and then decided I would make a pouch of some description.

Emily's timely tutorial over at the Village Haberdashery sprung to mind.  I drafted the pattern under her guidance, made a couple of panels from scraps to the required size and got this little beauty made up yesterday...


I would love to keep it, I really would, so I will generously let my partner have 30 minutes to make a gushing comment over in the flickr group, and if she doesn't, I'll swap it out for something I'll be glad to see the back of!  Fair enough?

Emily's tutorial is brilliant by the way - I love the shape and size of the pouch, and will definitely make more for my family at Christmas.  I am now even planning on using my lovely bigger-balled frame, which I took to Retreat but didn't use as the pattern there was for a slightly different size frame.  Thank you Emily, you're a star xxx

  3. Ooh, I love that purse!

    I wish I had noticed Emily's tutorial the other night when I completely buggered up my first ever frame, hee hee! (The second one came out OK though, and I'll definitely be making more of them.)

  11. Only 30 minutes...oh your so kind! If your partner doesn't reply in time and then if you get sick of it, I'm sure that it would love a trip To Australia, then it would feel like a big purse.

  12. What's your address again??

  13. I love this so you have to send it to me if I'm your partner. If I haven't gushed enough on flickr it's only because I'm British and doing the reserve thing not because I don't really REALLY want it :-)
