PLPS6 - job done!

As promised, here are some pictures of my completed Pretty Little Pouch Swap package...


I used Anna-Noodlehead's Open-Wide zipper method, and boxed the corners so the finished pouch measures up at c.11" square, scraping in under the 12" limit. 

This is my first time in the PLPS.  I thought I might find it intimidating, but it's actually been fine, maybe because I am familiar with a lot of the swappers and I opted for the Intermediate, rather then the tempting Advanced level, maybe because I have come a long way in the last year or so and am getting confident in my ability.  Either way, I loved the quick turnaround, got given a super easy-going partner and can't wait to see what is coming my way.

I just have to wrap it all up nicely and pop it in the mail this week.   I am hoping my partner is as pleased with it, as I am with how it turned out.  Time will tell.

  16. Gorgeous!! Her open-mouthed zipper has been on my list to try. I'm currently in a pouch swap and have been procrastinating making it as I can't decide on a design... I think I'll finally give it a go!
