We the People Swap 2

I made this little bucket organizer thing for my swap partner in the We The People Swap. it's got lots of pockets all around the outside, so hopefully she can puts lots of good sewing stuff in it. It's a Simplicity pattern and frankly, no fun to sew. I'm not sure I'll ever make another.

I messed up, but didn't even fix it. Can you tell a difference between the above and below photo? Well, one of the pieces of vinyl is on the wrong way. The black trim going down the middle of the pocket in the one below is on the inside instead of out. I didn't think it was worth undoing all my work.

And here is my organizer that the lovely Sarah made for me. Isn't in neat? It sets across the seat of a chair and has two rows of pockets on both sides.

I love the fabric combo she used, here's a close up:

Thank you, Sarah - I love it!

I hate that, when you have this great idea for something and your so excited and then it doesn't work out and you don't like it. Still the sewing and constructions looks neat :)

Also, I am so glad you signed up for the swap - what fun it shall be. You will really love all these fun ladies.

I also read on Derek's blog (yeah I'm a little snoop) that he had a date night by himself - I hope you are feeling much better!
