Last night I joined Cheryll and other talented ladies in the relaxing Friday Night With Friends!!!
I have been drafting up patterns and making up Mug bags. Yesterday afternoon I finished the first one from a new pattern I had designed as a result of a challenge between my 3 sewing friends and I.
The one on the right is the original. I had the piece of cup fabric which I had no idea what I was going to use it for hence the challenge to make a mug bag and mug rug challenge. Because I used the mugs for the bag I didn't want to cover up the fabric with pockets so this one has an internal pocket.

The blue one I placed the pockets on the outside. Very happy with my FNWF effort - although I did start mid afternoon. And below is the Mug Rug I made for the challenge. Very simple but it does the job - as I have 4 more of the mug pieces I will experiment with them to make rugs as gifts!
Well the fog has lifted, the sun is shining and the birds are chirping and flitting about in the trees which means I can get outside today and do some gardening.
What are your plans for this glorious winter day?
