Hi De Hi (this only makes sense if you ever saw the UK TV Show lol) Campers!
A while ago, I signed up to participate in the Black & White bag swap, run by my blog friend, Chez, as part of her "Let's Exchange" swap programme. Click HERE if you'd like to find out more about it. For the bag swap, you were to make a bag from Black & White fabric and include a 'smelly' item....all those that like fart jokes, pulllleeeeeez don't go there ok?
I was partnered up with the lovely Pauline in the UK. To see her blog, just click on her name over on the left, well now it's on the line above, but you get what I mean don't you?
Now a post wouldn't be written by me if I didn't bore you senseless before sharing the goodies pics would it? Are you bored enough yet? Have you come back from checking out the swap programme and/or Paulines blog yet? Yooooooooooo Whooooooooo, Come back, there's an echo, echo, echo in here! Oh good, you heard me, alrighty, are we sitting comfortably...you'll need to hold onto your false teeth for these pics....this bag is fantastic, and your jaw might drop in amazement, and I don't want to be responsible for any resultant dentist bills lol
Then Pauline made me a matching pouch....and it's quite a big pouch, which is good as I love to carry heaps of 'crap' with me when I go anywhere...I actually feel naked without all my 'stuff' might sound a bit nicer than crap, and stop you all thinking that I carry the other type of 'crap' around with me!
Thanks heaps for being a great swap partner Pauline...I love my bag to bits.
Now here's a pic of what I sent to her:
HERE. (scroll down a fair way to find the pdf downloads - there's 5 of them to grab, but don't panic, they're only one page each) I must seem like such a scab, because the bag is actually also a free pattern, which you can find HERE. Oh and just FYI I consider myself frugal not a scab!
Pauline has a post on her blog saying she liked her bag...wish I'd done something other than a bit of pocket trim after receiving my gorgeous embroidered bag from her.....sorry Pauline.
