Ugly Fat 1/4 swap

Recently Jenny & Fiona hosted a swap. An ugly fat 1/4 swap mind you. I don't "do" ugly at all. :)  I participated & found up some fabric. Whilst not "ugly" i've never liked it. No i didn't buy it, it was sent to me in a fat 1/4 swap about 10 years ago. Jenny assigned me Cath. Well fat 1/4 & bits & pieces were duely exchanged. I ummed & ahhed about what to make & here is what i came up with.  Oh Cath & i have done our swap back. :)
This is what i made Cath. A dresden girl wallhaging. The blue borders & binding was Cath's choice for "ugly". I rather liked it & thought it very nice.
Cath made me this gorgeous mini sewing tote. Front
Back. Cute raggedy. You can't see it properly but there is a cute wooden tag attached too which Cath has burnt details of the swap into.
Inside. Pockets, pincushion & needle holder.

Oh that makes another finish for me. YAY.

 Hugs, Jeanette
