Done - 10.50pm

Oodles of time left.


I cut most of the fabric this morning before work, finished off the stitchery during lunch at work and then did the applique hearts and made the bag tonight.  No fancy photo shoot.

 
 
I'm pleased to say that all the fabric came from my stash. Some of it has been around for ages.  The fabric on the base is scraps from a kit for a  Santa bag from when Anni first opened "The Home Patch" down in a tiny shop in Keppel Street.  I think it was about nine years ago.
 
I'm sure there will be lots of these bags at Nundle next month.
 
Now I have to look out some fabrics for next month's project.
 
Cheers
 
Janice
