Mouthy stitches Swap

So, how do you like my new header?
My sister designed the buttons for me.
 I created the rest in Photoshop Elements 9.
I still want to tweak it a little more, 
so you might notice a few other changes as I give this space a facelift.
I've finished my zip pouch for my Mouthy Stitches partner.
I hope she is happy with it.
I made it large enough to throw in a few necessities,
added some credit card slots
and she'll be ready for a quick run to the market.
I added a few charms to the zipper pull.


We were to include some fabric scraps. 
I'll keep those a surprise, just incase my partner reads my blog.
I also included some sweet treats, a postcard from our city and some really cute twine.

I'm forgetting that this is a swap
so that means I get a zippy pouch and some fabric scraps, too.
I guess I'll be stalking the mailman until my swap gift arrives.


Thanks for stopping by,

I like your new header as well! I wish I was your secret partner but since I'm not in the swap I know it isn't me. Can't wait to see what you receive.

Di this is wonderful. I wasn't bowled over by the typewriter, but now it's finished, it looks splendid!

Oh and yes, I love the header. I really must put some thought into improving mine.
