Weekend sewing

3 finished items for November! Just finished 2 of the Christmas Goose Baskets. One in red:

And one in green:

I actually had a little trouble sewing around the top edge. My machine kept on getting 'bogged' in the side seams due to the thickness! This is VERY annoying as my machine is SUPPOSED to sew through 15 layers of denim..... Yeah right! Anyway, it didn't take too long to hand sew down and I like the effect:

I cant finish the others yet, I need some more handles which my lovely friend will be picking up for me on Saturday..... Which reminds me, must tidy this bomb of a sewing room before she comes LOL!
Remember the little Red Brolly stitchery from last post...... Well, I made a little Mug Bag from it:

Teamed with a Mug which I am going to fill with chocolates for a gift:

Pretty productive weekend!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend too!
x Sarah
