FNSI for November

This Friday night seems to come around ever more quickly!

As usual, I was sewing in the afternoon as we were out in the evening. It was cold, damp and grey outside so perfect for an afternoon indoors.

First of all I finished this little bag to hold a colouring set.

The bag is inspired by this pattern by Joy Coey. It was a last minute decision to make it so no time to order the pattern which I first saw on Fiona's blog. So I just had to make it up as I went along.

This is a birthday present but too heavy to post so we will be taking it to UK when we go in December.

Once that was finished I was able to get on with some more presents - so only a sneaky look - sorry.

It has turned much cooler here in the last few days and we had a frost this morning followed by - sunshine!! we don't seem to have seen the sun for a long time. The cranes have finally decided that winter is coming as we have been watching them fly south all this week - they are 2/3 weeks later than usual.

Looking forward to catching up with what everyone did last night.

Have a good weekend



  1. Oooo someone is going to be thrilled receiving that colouring book carrier :)

  2. What a great way to put such a thing together. Lucky little person this Christmas!

  3. Love the bag and the fabrics. I was only thinking about making something similar yesterday. Great idea.

  4. That's such a lovely bag, Lin! The sneak peek at your secret projects are intriguing too :-) It certainly sounds like winter is on its way in your part of the world. You must think our hot Christmases here in the southern hemisphere quite alien and even bizarre! lol

  5. Lovely bag there Lin, and you are so clever to make it as you 'went along'...

  6. I love your art supply bag...perfect for pencils. Great gift.

  7. Well done for your 'making it up as you went along' colouring bag - it looks great. I think a lot of people are having to only give sneaky peaks of their work due to secret sewing projects - what I did see looked lovely.

  8. Your little bag will be a great gift. Have a nice week!

  9. Your little bag is delightful , I know the lucky recipient will love it . Great job on figuring it out without the pattern.

  10. What a neat project - the coloring bag. Holidays are sneaking up on us!!
