On Monday, at The Quilt Asylum, I was happily wandering around with a few fat quarters, content to look and not buy a lot (for once!) when Joellen pointed out the awesome London fabric by Makower UK for Andover. Love! So of course I bought some (1/2 yards of 5 different prints) and a bag pattern by Pink Sand Beach designs (the Tahiti bag. I love their patterns, such attention to detail, easy to follow).
I whipped this bag up yesterday. Actually it took me several hours. There are lots of lovely details, 2 zippers, lots of pockets. I didn't skimp on interfacings either.... used fusible fleece, peltex and sturdy fusible that the pattern called for. I'm so glad I did! This bag is amazing!
this tutorial at Sew Happy Geek. Well yes, of course I need a coordinating wristlet to put inside my London tote for the trip!
Now I can't wait to pack these bags up & hop on a plane to London! My countdown chain is getting shorter day by day....
