A EasY CaRRy

Friends Having Fun Swaps saw gift parcels being mailed all over the place last month.
The gift to be made this time was a "Ruler Carry Bag".
I received from Daisy Jayne... & as always Daisy's workmanship is divine. My cover will hold my long 24inch ruler... so every time I use it I will think of Miss Daisy Jayne.
Thank you so much ... I just LoVe it!
I also received... washer & soap...chockies & cards...cute garden bag with seeds & gloves.
So very generous of you Marcia...

My swap partner to send to was Christine... from HERE...
I designed a bag that would carry Christine's ...16 1/2 inch square ruler inside... her 12 1/2 inch square ruler on the back... & a 8 inch square ruler in the front pocket. Christine can carry three rulers at once now... & never needs to be without her favourite ruler while outside her home.
I borrowed Christines pic's as mine are trapped on my out of commission home computer...ooppss...
I used Michelle Ridgway's alphabet pattern for Christine's initial... & a computer font of Cooper Black at 200 for the Ruler letters on the pocket.
I'm really happy with how it turned out & Christine tells me she is too.
Thanks SnP for another wonderful swap...
aka...Shez & Peg... lol
I'll be back tomorrow with the gifts shared in the recent Christmas in July swap.
