Yes, I took my sewing machine on vacation. Why not?
The morning before we left, Michelle’s new pattern came out and I couldn’t wait to try it!
This bag is the perfect size. It can hold all my day-to-day stuff plus my stainless water bottle and my big camera.
I used fusible interfacing on both the outside and lining and sandwiched a piece of sew-in interfacing. I also added a layer of Peltex to the bottom, which I fused to the sew-in and then basted to the bottom. I struggled a little bit with the bottom, but I made it work. I will try it again and if it still doesn’t turn out right I can always just cut an oval for the bottom. I also added regular pockets and a zippered pocket on the inside and a key hook. Overall, this bag really went together quickly. The most time consuming part was cutting and fusing. (Don’t you love the sailboat ironing board cover? Too funny!)
