Kerri's bag side one

Kerri's bag side one

I hosted a baggie swap for the third (or 4th) time last year. Members of the group exchanged squishies of fabrics and embellishments and each person made something from the bag they received and then it was returned to the original owner. Kerri was very patient and gave me time to finish so I hope she likes it. I thought she deserves something special for all her patience and all the cool crazy quilts she shares from eBay!

The bag is just beautiful. You have added so much detail and so many fun treatments.

The colors are so viberant and the purple top/handle are perfect.

Very, Very NICE!

I really LOVE this bag!!! I am thinking of putting it in our quilt show in our CQ exhibit. It is one of the most fantastic things anyone has ever made for me! I am so lucky. Thanks Willa.

I loved your fabric, so I took the hostess privilege to choose it. It took me a while to get started but once I got going all the ideas were in my head and a few jumped in in the middle of it.. plus some little tidbits I had hanging around (like the unicorn heart) seemed to fit right on their. I tried to make something you would actually want to use. I got a needlebook in the swap from Virginia Schneider and it is something I use all the time. Everything I need to stitch in one place I can just throw it in a bag with my project and go. I thought you might want to add some trim or something to the handle and the top.. I wanted to but couldn't find the perfect thing.
