AREtsy swap - check!

Simply Stacy Jewelry - if you're reading this hide your eyes!!!




This time two days ago I was thoroughly convinced I'd be the last AREtsian to finish her swap. But a conversation with my good friend Denise and a hot and bothered evening with my sewing machine, and I've now completed my swap present. YAY!!!!

I'm posting it here cause I'm just gosh-darn-it proud of it and I don't think my swap partner reads my blog. I'm hoping she doesn't.



In case you're wondering what this fabric wallet looking thing is, it's a notepad cover. Inside there's a 4x6 notepad and a pen. The black line thingie across is the elastic that holds it closed.



I love this so much that I'm already planning to make one for myself, and my mother, and my sister, and my mother-in-law. Christmas, anyone? I'm thinking this will also make a good addition to my Etsy shop, though I'm thinking they won't make it there until after Christmas.
Later,

I love it, especially the quilting on the front. Interesting color combination too. Nice work!

As gorgeous as this is in the photo, it's even more excellent in person. I love the fringe-y raw-edge applique. And, gosh, that elastic idea is brilliant! :)
