Shoe bags complete

Tick this Off - Great Start to the Year

 What is the date?   Only January 4th and I am happy.


January's task for Chookyblue's Stitch-a-Long was a Shoe Bag designed by Anni Downs found in her book "Some Kind of Wonderful".

I found these shoe bags easy to make and they will be extremely useful.  

When I packed for my month with mum I brought along my SKOW book and fabric with the plan to make the shoe bags.  
At the time I didn't know that I was going to join the stitch-a-long!  Fate I would think.

I used mum's sewing machine to sew the bags together.  She has a Pfaff Creative Vision and I loved using it. I am hoping to have a go at some machine embroidery on it before I go home.

Birthday Love Stash 


I will be keeping one of these bags for me and I am going to put one in my Birthday Love Stash.

Yay big tick off for

Now to get ready for Friday Night with Friends. Looking forward to sewing with some of you tonight.
