Tote Swap

Swaps are so much fun! I joined in with Marsha at Tattered Chick for her Secret Valentine Heart Swap in February and had so much fun making the hearts for my swap partner that I signed up for Marsha’s Tote Swap, too!   My partner for the tote swap was Alveen from Bower Bird.

After looking through Alveen’s blog and having the information that she likes French Country, the same as me, I got to work planning out her tote.  I decided to go with a small zippered tote and used a French transfer image.



Then decided to build up from there.  Some crocheted ribbon, seam binding, some decorative buttons and some little treasures I sent along with it.


This little tote, that I made here in Dayton, Ohio, is now living in Australia! I love that!
