Pretty Little Pouch Swap - sent and received!

Pretty {little} Pouch Swap Button

I was so excited to receive this AMAZING package from AngelaD!

Isn't she amazing?  
My little artists and I have had tons of fun with all the extras she sent.
And the little bundle of the new DS fabrics was such a great surprise!

Here is what I sent to my partner:

She had several "gathered clutches" on her inspiration mosaic, and also said she liked color and linen.  So I used Noodlehead's gathered clutch tutorial, and pieced a center strip from different fabrics to coordinate with the lining.  I hope she likes it!
I added some organic chocolate treats, a ball of #8 perle cotton (recent thrift store find!), and some fat quarters of Katie Jump Rope that I discovered in the basement of a quilt shop a few weeks ago!  I hope you like it, partner!


  1. Very nice.....both the one you gave and the one you received. Nice extras too.........:)

  2. Both you and your partner are very lucky!!!! Such nice goodies and pouches!

  3. Lucky you, such a lovely package. I love your gathered clutch too! Are those fabric markers or crayons I see? I've never come across those before!

  4. I love your pieced stripe for the front. Noodlehead's tutorials are the best. See my Pretty {little} Pouch here! Wasn't it fun!

  5. What a great swap on both ends!! :) love the patch worked pouches! :)

  6. Very nice! What a lucky partner you must have!
