I'm a swapper

Hey! I just got the name of my swap partner for the Sweet Goodness Summer Fun: Bucket Full of Sunshine Swap! I'm so excited, this is my first swap. Hooray! I just happen to be headed to JoAnn Fabrics today and a few other places. Perfect timing. There's a huge Goodwill I've been wanting to check out, great excuse. My partner is from Arizona and this is her blog, check it out. I think we'll be a great match.
In other news, I already sold my new pirate tote bag so now I have to list something else! I'm not complaining. I was able to list a new zipper pouch last night. I used some scraps from a handbag I made to sew up this little pouch, I really love the colors.And after speaking a bit with my friend Jenn over at Jenn Maruska Design about fabric labels, I decided to try making some myself. I think I like them. I did this version for my smaller items. I embroider the ones on my quilts and handbags, but this is so much easier. The colors printed out really well too. I also did a version that has my complete logo with the dotted border. Now I need to make some monkey labels.Well, it's off to the shops for me. It's nice to get out of the house sometimes. Cheers!

Such cute stuff - I wish I could sew. I haven't tried since I was 13! I'm in my first swap - the Magic Yarn Ball. I'm still coming up with things to include but it's so much fun!

I love your new labels. I've been thinking that I really need labels for my creatures. Would you please tell me about yours?
