FNWF on Friday and Saturday day times....

I wonder - does that count?

My Friday night with Friends ended up being my Friday with Friends.
A group of us met up at Sew This and That, our LQS, for the annual sewing for breast cancer day.  We again made bags and little cushions for use after surgery.
Although there were not so many of us sewing this year, we still managed to produce this bundle of finished sets, and there are a few more that we are completing at home.

After being there for 7 hours with only short breaks, I was a bit "sewed out", so couldnt manage to do more sewing on Friday night.

However, on Saturday morning, which would have been Friday night somewhere in the world, I finished off my project from this month's sewing club at Sew This and That.


This month we made a bobbin box wrap.  It is designed to fit two of the rectangular bobbin boxes in.  I have only 1 bobbin box, but  had a plastic case of similar size, that will hold pens, unpicker and other similar tools.  This is another project using the  clear vinyl - I think we keep that industry in business, as so many of our projects seem to use it.  

  

All of the amazing sewing club projects we make are available for anyone to purchase by going to the Online Shop of  Sew This and That

Why not go here to see what other stitchy friends did on their Friday night.  Thank you Cheryll for again hosting us for our Friday night.

FWF is even better than FNWF! Pretty case cover - I have a similar bobbin case to yours - I love that it "cradles" the bobbins so they don't knock around :D

Excellent work from everyone for the cancer bags.
I LOVE those bobbin boxes - the best thing ever - no bobbin is ever going to fall out now - I have two...maybe I need a holder???

So good to read a post from you. These little bobbin cases are lovely and perfect for keeping small odds and ends together for sewing class. My vinyl zipper pouch is admired everywhere it travels with me....thanks so much :)

You and your group did well making all those bags and little cushions. And I know they will be much appreciated. I believe that when we sew for others we infuse the item with our love and that the recipients feel that on some level.

You bobbin kit turned out great!
