After reading that I don't think I need to take the quiz, that describes me perfectly.

I got your package today, thank you so much, I LOVE it. The fabric is so me and the bag is awesome, you did a fantastic job!

I'm glad you like it!

I had a lot of fun picking out the fabric and sewing with it. I really enjoy doing Christmas swaps because it's the perfect opportunity to try new things.

I just took the quiz and I'm actually a Grace;)

Are you going to add those to your store? I really think it's a lot classier than most wetbags and would do well. And the fabric is so pretty.

I'm struggling with my swap because I don't know my partner at all so I'm hoping she likes what I come up with.

Merry Christmas!

I was considering adding the bags to my store. I wanted to see about maybe making them a bit smaller so the pattern will fit on a fat quarter. I was also thinking about adding a second pouch inside but so far my attempts at doing that haven't worked to my satisfaction so I may just have to leave it like it is.

It is a beautiful bag and I think it would be popular but I don't know how you could do a dual pocket without a seam in the bottom, that one has been eluding me for quite a while.
