Make a colorful artistic handbag for one partner. Make the main pocket large enough to fit a regular size IPad. Put many pockets on the inside and outside of the bag. (Let's say at least 5). The main part of the bag and strap must be a sturdy material (denim, canvas, leather, duck cloth). Make it sturdy and usable (not just pretty), with main compartment able to be zipped or securely fastened. Maybe also have some of the other pocket able to be fastened as well. Use all of your unique skills (beading, mixed media, sewing....) to make something hard to give away (because you like it so much you would like to keep it). Make it able to be a cross body bag.

You may use repurposed washed/clean items such as jeans, belts, parts of old purses, shirt material for lining...... Just remember everything must be clean with no mildewed smell or any other stink!

You must have participated in at least 20 type 3 swaps, have a filled out profile, and have a rating of 4.9. No unexplained 1 or 3s.

It would be nice to customize it to your partners needs and likes however you only need to follow the swap parameters.

This one is USA only however feel free to make an international one if you like.

I did not have a complete handbag for a picture.

So I have no takers on this swap yet out of 700+ people. That makes me sad. I am almost finished with my bag. The first two I made I was really happy with, but when I tried to put in my IPad it didn't fit so I went back to the drawing board. The reason I made two is so I could keep one. So I am more than half done with the second set. I have to add the strap and lining and then I will attempt to change the picture. I do plan on personalizing it if I get a partner.

Well, you have 10 watchers so I really hope you get at least a partner! Otherwise, I'd host a dang mug rug! lol I sure wish I could sew Darlin.
