I have two trips coming up soon. On Saturday morning I will be driving to Chattanooga to see granddaughter #1. Her Dad (my son) will be going with me. She goes to college there and wants us to see her new apartment. We will just stay one night.
Next Wednesday I will be boarding a plane to San Diego to see my daughter, granddaughters #2 and #3. I will also see grandson #1 and his family, which includes a great-granddaughter I have never seen. I am so excited. Guess I will have to find some time this year to go to Chicago to see grandson #2.
Last night I decided to make a large bag to carry on the plane. It will also be perfect for the over-nighter this week end. I had never worked with pre-quilted fabric before. I looked through the internet to find some ideas on working with it. I had purchased the fabric over a year ago with a Joann's coupon. Had to dig it out of a bin in my closet last night. This is double-sided fabric, which made it nice to work with. I searched my stash and found a fabric that I thought worked well for the binding. Here is the end result.
The bag is 16" tall and 18" wide. The pockets are the reversed fabric. I really like it. Not my greatest sewing if you see it close up, but good enough for me. I reallylike the bias printed fabric I used for the binding.
Now what else can I make for trips?
