Sew Sew Modern 3

11 September

I couldn’t help but join Sew Sew Modern 3, an online swap exchange of handmade items organized by Lee Monroe and Karen Dorey.  I was to make one large item and include one small item that complements it based on what my secret partner wants.  This is what I put together for my secret partner, Kelleigh, who likes green and polka dots 🙂  A messenger bag, a business/loyalty card holder, a journal, and a graph ruled comp book that might come in handy for quilt design.

When deciding on fabrics to use, I posted a pic to Flickr and Instagram asking for help in choosing one linen and one green print.  I hoped she would reply.  And she did!  Dark linen and polka dots it is!  It’s funny, I think she was the only one to choose that green.  But what my secret partner wants, she gets.  And it was a good choice!

Isn’t the green Michael Miller Mirror Ball Dot fabric shiny and pretty?

Paired with Essex Yarn Dyed linen in a denim blue, I like it.

I just got word that Kelleigh received it, and she likes it!  Here’s a pic she posted on Flickr:
