Swap sent and received: Shabby Chic Handbag

A swap I sent to the US was well received... here's what Angelia of Sew Much To Sew blog had to say...

........................................................................

Shabby Chic Handbag Swap!

Lisa of Canberra, Australia (that's me) made me the cutest shabby chic handbag! And I love it!

The swap was to make a handbag useing thrift store type goods... mine is actually finished but I don't want to post it until I know my swap partner has received it. When you join a swap on swap bot you get to see who your sending to and who's sending to you!!!

Lisa says in the card that she pieced together old dresses and scraps to make my bag. It has a vinyl interior and a zipper top... AND she even put a little note book inside covered with textured paper.
A wonderful, unique, handmade, handbag all the way from Australia! How cool is Swap-Bot!
And yes, Lisa, this makes up for my sad swap! lol!
