FNWF & a finish

I started my sewing with friends bright & early. First thing to be done was putting together a soft book.
Then onto making a nappy bag. I'd already cut fabrics out weeks ago for a nappy bag pattern i had but just couldn't seem to bring myself to make it. Last weekend some friends & i got talking about a big bag we'd made using charm squares & how another friend was making them smaller with 4" squares & it was mentioned about using the smaller size for a nappy bag. Weeellll light bulb moment. So with sewing the cut strips together & turning them in squares & a few bits of other baby prints i had enough fabrics for the 44 squares needed. I only got the front done, back at it today.

 Last night i worked on these Christmas tags.
 Pop on over & visit Cheryll, our lovely host, to see who else joined FNWF.
Happy Stitching,
