The Secret Fabric Swap and the *almost* Poochie Bag

This gorgeous bundle is for my secret BAMQG holiday swap partner. After I got her wishlist, I headed my local quit shop. My partner likes:
  • Ric Rack Rabbits
  • Chicopee
  • Geometrics 
  • Retro fabrics

I remembered another helpful hint; my partner often comes to the meetings wearing red. I liked the idea of a coordinated, but slightly eclectic bundle. These rabbits were my starting point and I added the rest one at a time.

These are about to get pooch-ified! @happy_zombie

When it came time to wrap it up, I thought I'd be sneaky and use the same prints from her bundle. Who would guess if it matched? I remembered Monica's fat quarter friendly Poochie Bag pattern. Perfect! I ended up fudging the measurements a little to fit the print. It's not exactly as the pattern was written, but I think it still looks cute. For inquiring minds, I pooched 2" in order to fit the fat quarter stack.

Add in a fabric covered journal and a spool of thread and we're good to go.

Now my secret it out. Happy Holidays, Annemarie!
