Sew Sew Modern Swap :: Made for Lee


I haven't officially shown in the blog about the tote I made for my Sew Sew Modern Swap 4. So, here goes some photos of the tote I made with a little pouch.

For my sew sew modern 4 partner, a tote and a small pouch 

My partner is the ever so talented Lee, who blogs and creates at Maychappell.  After stalking around, I got a feeling she likes Tula Pink's fabrics so, I went ahead and purchase some yardage of Acacia.

She mentioned a tote in her preference, so after long thinking of which pattern to use, I decided to create a simple one of my own using the techniques I have learnt from various patterns.

I incorporated some quilt as you go for the front open pocket,

A bit of stretchy pocket on the inside, snap buttons for the pleated sides (it can be open to convert into a larger tote)

and a folded strap.

As for the small gift, I made a pouch. I wanted to incorporate some hexies on the pouch, so I did. At first I wanted to make a purse using the purse frame I bought sometimes ago, but I failed to make the pattern right so I ended up with a rather unique pouch instead. Oh well...I think the hexies helps making it look cute at least!

I couldn't help myself doing some free motion quilting too..

I was pretty much happy with both of them and was glad my partner have received and loved them as well.

I am so excited to be a part of few swap this year. I am hoping to join more this year. I really enjoyed making things with others in mind. In fact I have a secret handmade gift making this year for some special followers and lucky followers too ! Wait for it..

Till then, Have a lovely happy days.
