Frog Bag

I thought it was about time I wrote another post before people think I've disappeared again - time just seems to fly!!  I've been stitching again and made some more bags for the tombola later in the year and here is one which uses up some frog fabric squares which I bought on a whim because I thought they were cute at the time.  It seems silly to just keep them around because I like them so I've matched them up with some bright red fabric left over from a previous project and made this cheery bag.  The sunshine has been glorious today and it was a shame really to be indoors but I had done all the prep yesterday for a bag making session - finding fabrics, cutting out and so on so that I could concentrate on the actual sewing today without dashing around the house looking for bits and pieces.

Sorry, I've just realised the photo is a bit 'fuzzy' so I will try and replace it with a better one when I've cleared up all the debris left from my sewing marathon.  There are two more of the froggy squares on the other side of the bag.

Edited to include a clearer photograph
