Spring Swap to Russia

My parcel finally arrived with my swap partner in Moscow so I can now show you what I sent.
Oh dear these pictures have not turned out very bright. Sorry, they looked much better on the camera! Oh well, never mind.
I made this cute bag which has a big wooden button and a popper underneath as I thought that a button hole that big might not look very good. It is lined with pink cotton fabric and can be worn on the shoulder or as a handbag.

There is a nice pleat in the centre front and back of the bag which gives the bag more room to put things in it.
I also added two fat quarters, a keyring, some posh tissues, flower post-its, and a cupcake card with a recipe on the back.
I really enjoyed this swap and I have made a blog link with Tatyana in Russia which I would not normally have had the chance to do.
I shall be making another one of those bags too, I think!!
