Weekend Bag Making
Monday, June 24, 2013
favorite tote pattern as a starting point. I used the black tulip vines print from Nordika and quilted it with Aurifil #2605 50wt thread. The exterior also has a layer of batting and cotton duck canvas. I interfaced the lining with Pellon Shape-Flex, I wanted it to be extra strong! For the straps I top stitched fabric on top of cotton webbing! Finally it's finished off with a thick particle board insert for the bottom.

Overall I'm really happy with how this set turned out! I'm looking forward to traveling with my machine soon! I've published this set as a pattern, it can be found here: Sew Portable Travel Set
Color Me Retro Aeroplane Bag this weekend! I made the larger size from Sara Lawson's Aeroplane Bag Pattern!
Pellon Peltex and new-to-me Annie's Soft and Stable! I'm glad I gave it a good try, the results were great! And my machine sewed through them just fine.
