December Friday Nigh Sew-In - Round 1...

It's Saturday here now (how in the world did that happen so early in the week!!!) which means last night was Round 1 of December's Friday Night-Sew In...
and I almost achieved what I set out to do....first up...Finish This Bag...
Excuse the sewing table debris...work in progress!...
which yesterday morning was components - a stitched panel and cut out fabric....now just some more buttons to be sewn on and it will be ready to fly off to its new home...

I was loving playing with P-faff so much that before I started sewing on buttons I made a little something I'd been thinking about for a couple of weeks...
...a little pouch for the tray/plate that I take along to sewing for sweet treats with my cuppa...a rummage through a stash box came up with a piece of Debbie Mumm fabric right for the job so it was employed...nothing fancy schmancy just a simple two layers of fabric pouch but better than the face washer that it has been wrapped in until now.  It was going to be three layered with batting but I miscalculated and stuffed that bit up so tossed that plan...you get that when making stuff up as you go along, I'm calling it a prototype and moving on!...just needs a press stud...

Moving on from P-Faff the buttons made good progress, it was fun sitting with the button stash choosing, something relaxing about swishing buttons around looking for the right one...I got tired around 10:00pm and retired to the couch to watch "Sex and the City" on the tele and commune with some applique and machine quilting books...I'm counting that into FNSI as "research"...the books not the TV programme *LOL*...

Hope your FNSI was productive...for me it's back to the buttons - the plan? to back later with the finished bag...

Happy Stitching....

Looks like a very productive Friday night - I managed a little stitching after my early evening nap! Lovely little tray pouch - perfect fabric.
