Handmade Gift Exchange

I participated in the Handmade Gift Exchange for the first time at Craftaholics Anonymous. If you're not familiar with this, Linda pairs up 2 strangers to make gifts for each other to exchange. I was paired up with Julia from Get Your Crafts On. Here is what I made for her.

Jalynn helped me pick out the fabric and I have to admit, I loved it so much after I finished, I'm making me a purse now.

It was like Christmas when my package arrived from Julia! I received the most delicious cookies (I ate them before I could get a picture!) and this.

I love it! It already has a snug little place in my purse. I use it to hold my coupons for Hobby Lobby, Joann's, and Michael's. It's perfect! I have the little notepad for my list, a place for coupons and any swatches I'm carrying to match colors. Thank you again, Julia!

If you would like to see all the gifts everyone exchanged, Linda has a linky party up and running to see everything. You can see it here. This was so much fun, I can't wait for the next one!

Very nice, both what you made and what you received. It's always so much nicer receiving something handmade.
