This swap is for the Clematis by Blue Calla, a free pattern that is both fast and adorable! The first one I made was also for a swap, and I received an amazing one in return so of course I wanted to do another swap! This time my partner's request was for 'southwest' and a cross body strap. Oddly enough, I had nothing in my stash that really said 'southwest' so I had to go shopping! What are the odds that my stash fails me?? (ok, I did have one set that might have worked...but it would have been a stretch...) A quick trip to Hobby Lobby saved my bacon and I found something to fit the bill!
|The horses were a fun touch for the lining|
|Chicago screw attachment meant I didn't have to worry about screwing up a rivet!|
Another request was for a cross body strap, which was an easy thing to figure out (with the help of the other swap members that did it already!). Next time I might try the inside pocket modifications, but I was just going for speed this time. If I had planned better, I might have found a perfect embroidery pattern, but with everything else I was trying to get out, I'm just glad I had it finished (nearly) on time! Next time, start right away!
|I like the circle connectors, the D-rings always seem to slide around|
|Lots of fun extras!|
