Summer is upon us and traveling is in high swing! One of my favorite things to sew is good size travel bag. This bag pattern will not disappoint! I am a huge advocate for finished seams on the WHOLE project. Nothing makes me happier in a sewing project. So when I read on this pattern, that it had finished edges, everywhere, I couldn't wait to start this bag!
See what I am talking about?! Finished edges everywhere, even the zipper edge! I added an elastic pocket with pleats on the inside of the bag to maybe hold extra shoes.
One never has enough pockets, am I right?!
This bag also uses "Annie's Soft & Stable," and excellent foam based, lightweight stabilizer that is fantastic at keeping it's shape. I used a free motion quilter to quilt the fabric before ever cutting out my pieces and it worked amazing! I am really pleased with how this project turned out and would love to teach our students how to make it. This is a great project for any level two student.
Stay tuned for more travel sewing projects!
