What happens when two crafty gals who love to sew get together? They let their kids have a Star Wars marathon so they can make something! Last weekend my friend Heather came into town with her family and we were not lazy. We stitched up an Ultimate Travel Bag. The pattern is by Annie Unrien and she has even has a Craftsy class for it!
Look at how beautiful it turned out! I must say that we outdid ourselves here. Heather brought with her this gorgeous Tula Pink fabric plus all of the notions.
My contribution was a room to sew in...
And a computer to watch the class as we went along.
Everything about this bag is meticulously designed. Even though Heather and I consider ourselves expert sewists, we picked up a ton of tricks and techniques for sewing bags.
The piece above was a quilted pocket. Can you believe how pretty it is?
There are mesh pockets on the inside (because mesh doesn't add bulk to the seams)...
And a sweet strap to hold this bag on your other luggage.
We added a little perk of our own design... a hidden vinyl pocket for business cards.
Conclusion: It truly is the Ultimate Travel Bag!
After we allowed our husbands to oooh and ahhh for an appropriate amount of time, we had to decide...
Who should have it? :)
Just kidding! It was for Heather all along. Check out Annie's brilliant Craftsy class for The Ultimate Travel Bag to sew your own!
