Black & white bag swap....

 This is the gorgeous bag Heather made for in the swap http://seriouslycrazy4craft.blogspot.com.au/  I love the fact that the black rose turns into a beautiful brooch.The funny thing is we both chose similar gabrics to make each others bags in.
 Heather also sent me some yummy smelling soaps,anybody who knows me knows I LOVE soaps and to top it of Heather also made me a matching zippered pouch,I take my hat of to anyone who can conquer the dreaded zip! So thankyou Heather I had lots of fun with this swap and love evrything that you made and bought to go with this swap :)
 This is the bag I made for Heather and let me tell you those curves nearly drove me to pulling my hair out! But in the end all turned out right and I was quite pleased with how it finished up.I added some little wooden lady bugs to the front of the bag to give it a little zing.......
I also included a chocolate bar as I thought Heather might be needing one right about the time my parcel arrived on her doorstep.I also included some DMC threads,pretty blak & white ribbons and rose soap to finish of the giving.
Thanks Heather for being my swap partner for this swap,I had lots of fun making and receiving the bags :)
