July SAL finish

I posted this one over at SAL but forgot to include it here:

This is from Natalie Birds' book Tis the Season - Chilly Penguin bag.
The stitchery was optional - so I left it out.
To me it was a bit small so I didn't want to make a big fuss of it.
I hand pieced the hexagons instead of paper piecing them - I haven't hand pieced for years so it was nice to do.

I made it from a Charm Pack I won  quite a while back.. I pieced the back and handles as well to use more of the fabric.

  10. Isn't it great to find a use for our little fabric packs? I love it and it hardly needs the penquin. Too summery for him anyway, the snow would have melted as it is so cheery. Hugs
