FNSI and a Bag Story

Many thanks to Wendy for hosting our get together again this month - I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else got up to here.

Last month I was working on some secret stitching and promised to show you this month what I was working on. It was these.


Yes, another little log cabin pin cushion - this time with no gusset. It is about 3" across.


The little pouch bag I made using this pattern from s.o.t.a.k handmade - a good basic pattern in four sizes. I made the smallest.


Whilst in UK last weekend I collected a large package of wool from The Wool Warehouse in order to make this blanket.



 Good job it is squashy so that I was able to get it in my suitcase! I love the colours. I made a start on some of the blocks while I was away.


What I realsied was that I needed a small container in which to keep my crochet hooks, stitch markers, scissors and needle while I was working on the blocks - and so to my project for FNSI!
I used the same s.o.t.a.k pattern but adapted it to make a squatter pouch to keep all my little tools in.



Another little project for Friday was to make this card using 1/2" hexies for a poorly friend.


Now, while talking about the s.o.t.a.k pattern I also want to show you this wristlet bag that I made for my Mum adapting the same pattern.


I used some Liberty furnishing fabric samples and added a pocket to the inside, leaving out the boxed corners on the base.


It's a useful, adaptable, beginner friendly pattern that I am sure I am going to use a lot.

Well I think that is enough for one day - hope everyone had a great Friday.

I am also linking up with BagIt 2017 run by Patty at Elm Street Quilts.

Wow, Lin! You have been busy! Pretty crochet! I love the way the wool is being packaged these days. A friend from handicrafts was only showing us her wool last week with a bag just this like this! I love your crochet hook pouch, it’s very pretty. I really need something like this!
It’ll have to go on the list!

I love your pincushion and matching bag. The fabrics are beautiful. I admire your ability to make bags, they frustrate me too much. Your crocheted blanket is already taking shape so quickly! Don't you love the organza bags that their yarn comes in. I recognise that crochet hook...bought one myself in that size and 2 other sizes. So lovely to hold. I also like how each size is a different colour. I look forward to seeing your crochet progress.

It's always neat to see the various bags that you've created! They are so nice to have to tuck in a larger bag or purse. You made all of those crocheted blocks already! You must be really enjoying yourself and I love those colors that you're working with.
Happy stitching,
Judy

Hello Lin, you've made such delightful and very useful bags. I love your choices of materials too, especially in the pin cushion.
The little tag you've sew into the side is cute too - it's so nice putting your name on your creation, I liked that.
Your card is lovely as well.
It's really beaut catching up with you once more, hugs :D) xx

Gorgeous work! Love little bags and pincushions! I bought a bag of wool from Wool Warehouse a couple of years ago and it made a beautifully soft and cuddly Afghan! I’m looking forward to placing another order soon!
