FNSI Results - the second one in December

I joined in with the FNSI again this week, but had terrible, terrible results.  :0(

I tried to make the i-pod cosy that I've previously failed to make, and guess what?  I failed!  Such a simple little object but I keep messing it up.  I'm going to have one more go as I know my mum really wants one. 

The other thing I messed up was a lap top cover I'm making from a tutorial (I'll share the link when I finish making it).  First I cut the pieces to the wrong size, then I realised I should have halved my original measurements and had to cut them all again.  Well, by now, I've lost the will to live, or at least to sew!  I have been sewing since 2pm as I had the afternoon off work.  It's now 7:30 and I'm going to get some tea, then do a little hand embroidery!  It's much less likely to go wrong - I probably wont share it with you until Monday though as I've got a very busy weekend ahead.

So, what DID I make? I made a crochet bag!  It's made from Amy Butler fabrics, it's a present for my mum.  When we went to the crochet class in the summer I bought the fabric and got a free worksheet and this is what I made:

Hi Wendy,
Thankyou for you lovely comment.

I really like the outer fabric on the bag you made.
Ive seen something like it in a local shop, now youve given me an idea what to do with it.

Cheers
