I made a trip to Ohio this past weekend to see my beautiful Mom for Mother’s Day. Mom and Dad generously flew me out to Columbus, which was a perfect opportunity to sew a travel bag using this tutorial I found online.
I found these beautiful coordinating fabrics at Jo-Ann’s. I absolutely love the gray and it is complements beautifully by the berry and pink. This was my first attempt at using piping. I don’t have a piping foot, but my zipper foot seemed to work fairly well. I did adjust the pattern slightly by adding pockets to the side. It was the perfect place to quickly store my boarding pass and cell phone at the airport.
My awesome wooden handles were on clearance for $0.97! I bought out the stock just in case I want to make more bags.
The lining had pockets that were perfect for my books and journal.
I also added a key fob which held my sunglasses nicely since I decided to leave my keys at home for this trip.
All in all, this bag was awesome for my trip. I love it and can’t wait to use it again!
