Learning Something New!

I had a fun day yesterday with my Knitting group. We decided to get together for the day at the weekend in order to learn some new things. Not of it knitting related this time. We had a quilting demo which I plan to have a go at eventually. We were also taught how to make draw string bags. My sewing machine and I are not the best of friends so it was nice to learn to make something with it. Isobel who was teaching us even brought along some pre-cut material and I made the bag above. It's so pretty I don't know what to use it for.

We even got our very own pin cushion made by Isobel.

We also got a demonstration on how to stitch Japanese folded bags. I didn't have a go that time but took notes. I made this one today. It's great to use as little gift bags. One friend even suggested using them instead of an advent calendar. Mine is on the small side so plan to make a larger one in the future.
