Near the beginning of this month, Sew Mama Sew said they'd host a bag swap. They'd pair you with someone with similar tastes in bag size and style and you'd make a bag for your partner while she made one for you. I thought about it for about 10 minutes and decided I was in. I've been looking to get into some swaps after seeing all the fun people are having on their blogs and on flickr. I was paired with a really sweet girl named Trudy and we talked through email a few times to get an idea of what we were looking for in a bag. We had very similar tastes, so I have to give the girls at SMS credit there, but both of us were very open to being surprised too. Our only requests--make it BIG enough to carry all of our kiddos stuff and make it colorful.
