I should be in bed but I'm soooo excited

I managed to get some needles for the machine last week but today has been the first time I've managed to use them as I had a couple of felt food bags to make. Anyway, after making a few gifts bags (see below ;o) ), and once the kids were in bed and hubby had gone to work I got his man bag out again. The first seem just didn't want to go, and I managed to break another needle!!! I persevered, slowly, and look!!.........it's finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is a pocket on the inside for his phone which I hadn't had chance to measure so I just guessed - well the phone fits perfectly!!!! You'll have to excuse all the exclamation marks but I'm just so happy and relieved that I've got a few more things off the list.
(Note the quality control inspector)

(gift bags which need the ribbon threading in)

This is the pyjama case which I've made for JJ. I have a feeling it's going to be too small, but I'm sure he'll find another use for it if it is :o).

Lovely makes...as always.
And good for you finding sewing time, even if it is at the cost of your sleep. Hey, there's more nights to sleep through lol.
Best wishes.
