Just for me

When I signed up for Natasha's "All About Me Swap" last month, I knew exactly what I was going to make. Her idea for this "swap" was wonderful ~ to create something for yourself and share it on your blog. I love participating in swaps, but I rarely make things just for me.

I found this vintage case at a yard sale for $1 earlier this summer. I had been looking for something to use to carry my supplies for classes at Silver Bella. This was perfect!
A little foof... and it's ready to go!

Oh Heather, how adorable
I think I may have to copy this adorable idea...I have an old train case that I use as my sewing kit...never thought about altering it. Clever!!!

Great case!! I just love the foofing you came up with :) I had a similar thought when trying to decide what to make for this "swap", and also made a tote for my supplies and stash to use at Silver Bella! I look forward to seeing you there in a couple of weeks.

I just love that! How wonderful to do something just for yourself. It is such a good idea

I am going to Silver Bella for the first time and don't have a CLUE what I will put my supplies in...in fact, I am working hard to get my swaps done and haven't even thought of it.

I am pleased for you. This is just adorable!
