One week to go...

Just a reminder, all bags should be mailed by Saturday, May 3. Many of you are really on the ball and have already sent out your partner's bag...kudos to you! I should be making mine today. I'm a bit of a procrastinator, but I'm working on it.

If you haven't yet, definitely take a look at the Bend-the-Rules Sewing flickr pool. Several bags have been posted recently. What a great source of inspiration and motivation!

Please be sure to send me an e-mail -- jimmydogbrand (at) aol (dot) com -- when you receive your bag. I want to make sure everyone sends and receives in a timely fashion. Be sure to let your sending swap partner know you received your bag. Either send her a note or post a comment on her blog or flickr photo.

My sewing machine is calling...gotta go!

This has been a blast! Will you be organizing another project from the book?

I'm so glad you had fun! There will be another swap. I think I'm going to put up a vote for which project. The vote will start soon after the mailing deadline. Be sure to check back!

I have been trying to email you but the message is bouncing back to me.

Hi, my bag is done, but not in the mail yet. We had a big storm yesterday so I couldn't get to the post office. I will have it in first thing Monday morning.
The bag went together much easier than I expected after reading some people's posts. I would do a couple things differently next time, but I'm that way with anything I make. :>)

Thank you for organizing this swap!! I had a lot of fun trying to make something for a partner I don't know and who has totally different taste from mine. I hpe it's up to her standards!

Thank you so much for organizing this swap! I got my bag done/shipped in time, but I sure hope my partner likes it. It was really challenging to make something for someone with different style and taste, but I hope she likes it!

Should we post if we have received a bag? I sent out my bag a couple weeks ago and want to make sure it got there. And thank you thank you for all the work you have put into this swap. It is my first one and I had a blast making my bag. I still am waiting for mine (hopeful). Can't wait till the next project.
