Friday Night Sew In Results

I finished the projects I set out to do when I signed up for the FNSI. I was hoping to take a picture of it outside this morning but it's raining so indoors will have to do. Sorry about the pictures of the backs of these projects. I just can't show you the front but the backs still look really pretty.


This is a book cover I made using Joel Dewberry's Heirloom fabrics. I love the combination of orange and green. 



What's a book cover without a bag to match? I think these are going to be my new favorite color combo. I was scouring my local discounts shop to find a mannequin to use for taking photos and finally found one. Now it's so much easier to take photos of my bags.


Check out Crafty Vegas Mom's blog so you can check out what all the ladies made for FNSI.


I am also linking this to Sew & Tell Fridays over at Amy's blog.

I love the bag! You are so right on with your style - Tangerine Tango is supposed to be the colour of the year 2012. I can't wait to use some.

I love these! Thanks for linking up.

I have this fabric earmarked for a tunic top - I hope it looks as fabulous in that as it does here!

The bag is great as is the book cover, but the idea for the maniquin is stellar.

I just have the book cover and the bag to match is just too cool. And I really love that bag. The fabric is wonderful.

The bag and book cover (do you have a pattern for the book cover) are lovely, I just made 2 bags with the same Joel Dewberry fabric, you can see them on my blog, TFS.
