I got a bunch of fun mail in the past week or so but haven't had a chance to show it off. Back in January, I'd sewn a shirt that I wasn't too thrilled with. Enter Sylvia, one of the three crafty ladies behind mola coser who saw my shirt, complimented me on the work and offered to take it off my hands.
In return she sent me a little hand-made love from Spain.
I love how she cleverly used some of the fabric of the shirt to make up the bottom half of this little purse (she is much taller than me and said that the sleeves were too short. So smart girl that she is, she shortened the sleeves and used up the scraps for purses.).
And as if a handmade gift from Spain wasn't enough, she filled the purse with fabric swatches and a pretty postcard. I'll have to come up with something fun to do with the pretty fabric. Maybe a granny's garden sampler? I've always wanted to do one of those. But most of my crafting projects have come to a halt since I am way behind on some deadline knitting whose deadlines I have long missed.
Anyways, Thanks again Sylvia for the lovely trade! This adorable purse will go to good use!
