Covert Robin Swap

I signed up for the Covert Robin Handmade Swap hosted by Imagine Gnats. I'm not going to reveal who I was assigned since they are likely going to recieve it this week. But I'm sure she doesn't read my blog so figured it was safe to post about it.

Well actually I already posted about one part of the gift.. an Envelope Clutch..



Now my intention was to make some thing else with my Cameo cutting machine like a small canvas stenciled painting but discovered that my assignee was more than talented in that department so I decided to stick with my strength and made her another purse. 

This one is a 3 way purse. It can be a clutch folded without the strap or a crossbody purse worn folded or unfolded.

Clutch without strap or small crossbody with strap
 I have made a similiar one before but made a few changes to this version.

The one thing I was really happy about was that I figured out a new zipper pocket application where the zipper is hidden.

See in the middle where the circles are not complete.. There's a zipper pocket there

I'm thinking I might post a tutorial on the zipper pocket application. I took the photos and just need to find the time to write it up.

The back has  a large pocket that closes with a magnetic snap.  That pocket contains the rings to attach straps when worn folded. I didn't get a good photo of this

After finishing the bag, I realized I forgot to put the magnetic snap for the main closure.. I could have left it as is but it was bothering me.  Luckily I had some sew-in magnetic snaps and was able to come up with a way to use them on the finished bag.  The snaps are inside the tabs.




I also played around with creating a zipper pull from washi tape.. It doesn't match too well but I included it as I thought it was cute!


And lastly I created a paper pendant as a small addition..


You'll see these all over Pinterest using washers, scrap book paper and dimensional glaze. I decided to try with out the washer.. cause I'm a rebel like that..

I wanted to add a proper closure and some proper jewelery hardware (is that's what it's called??) but the beading section at the craft store confused me and I couldn't figure out what I needed. So I left it simple.

So that's it.  It's been a crazy few weeks for me and in my rush to get this mailed last week, I totally forgot to explain how the 3 way bag works in the note to my recipient.  So I'll have to email her once I know she recieved it.  Hope she likes it!
