Friday Night Sew-In

Hey Gang!

Can I just tell you
that my little sewing palace
is such a great stress reliever?

I'm so happy I got home from work in time
to participate in the Friday Night Sew-In.
I try to partipate every month,
just because it's always nice to have a dedicated
time for something that really does my heart well.
(beside sweating to death riding my bike)

The bag I made is one of Melissa's designs
(I so love her stuff!)
You can find it here
If you scroll down on this site a bit,
it's the Movin and Groovin Bag.
 I thought I would link the page to all of here goodies,
because she has a ton of great stuff to make!

The fabric I used was Cosmos by Dan Bennett.
You can purchase it from
Kym has great fabrics at great prices!
I've always felt that Melissa's designs work well with the fabric Kym carries.
I just wish I had more time to put things together.

Here's the button I used for the bag.
I don't have a lot of fancy buttons to work with
(I think I need to start building a better button stash!)
but this one worked well with the bag.

The pattern doesn't call for a pocket,
so I added one in and made it two compartments.
(this would be great for someone like my sister who is constantly loosing her keys)

This little bag does have a new home it's going to.
My son's girlfriend might have mentioned she'd like a new bag
(I know when to take a hint!)
So when I see her this weekend,
she'll have a nice surprise!

Oh yeah...
when you read this,
I didn't forget about your kindle case!
I've ordered the heavy weight interfacing,
so once it's here,
you're next on my list!
(love you!)
And of course,
I'll be using another one of Melissa's patterns to make that as well.
(Melissa...have I told you you'r my hero?)

I hope you all get a chance to find a few hours to do something special just for you.

Much love!!!

Love the fabric you used for the bag. It's always so much fun to see what other blogs have done on FNSI.

Great bag! I have seen the fabric before but never anything made up with it. So, I had a hard time envisioning it. I think this is a really good application of that fabric!
