Teaching a friend to sew

OK a friend approached me the other day telling me she is going ski-ing soon but doesn't have a case for her goggles. Having a love for making things I said it would be a breeze for me to make this for her.
All credit to her she asked if she could have a go at it herself with guidance. Well this was a little challenge for both of us as I didn't have a clue what to do, decided to go about making something similar to a pencil case with a top opening.

She choose the fabrics and I LOVE it!! Especially the square on the end of the ribbon pull.
Here she is looking very smiley, a very hard working student. (we are both teachers). Massive congratulations!!!!!!

Happy New Year and BOM

Well I guess i Had better jump on the band wagon and wish you all a Happy new Year.

I'm sure many of you have noticed the BOM in my sidebar recently. This is by little Miss Shabby called Birdie Stitches.

I got really excited by this bring both embroidery and quilting into one project so I whipped straight on the internet and ordered a jelly roll and plain fabric.

I've been eyeing up Bliss by Moda for ages and guessed at Kona Solids Aqua. When it arrived it was perfect, and this morning Little Miss Shabby released the first BOM.
