Sewing and knitting for Friday Night with Friends

I am a little late posting what I did on FnwFs hosted by Cheryll, but it is better late than never.
This is what I worked on-- an embroidery, then after awhile I switched to some knitting.

Knitting-- making a beanie
Then on Sunday I had one of those rare days where I sat and did craft most of the day--heavenly.
I had cut and sewn the front and back panels of the pouch, but I had to put it together. I find zippers a challenge-- but finally managed to do the zipper for this pouch. The pattern for this pouch is on Noodlehead. The instructions are very clear and the pictures are easy to follow.

 I used the left over fabrics from this quilt. I had made this quilt for my son in 2011.  The pouch is large enough to hold my knitting-- so I now have a knitting bag.

Thank you Cheryll, for hosting another FnwFs.
