September again. With great pleasure I remember September of 2013. One year ago, I and my hubby loaded the car with some stuff and we headed to Paris. Three days on the road and we arrived there. We loved out adventure on the road, we loved Paris, the Mylene Farmer’s concerts (and oh, the feeling when I found out that our quilt won an award at Houston) but most of all I loved that all my three sisters were there with us.
They arrived a few days later and we waited them at the airport. A few times in my quilting life I was proud of my work – and this moment was one of them.
I remember their happy faces and how proud they were with these bags hanging on their shoulders. Priceless memories!
We tested extensively these bags and we loved them.
Some of you asked about the pattern, here it is finally.
I am happy to share with you the “Bon Voyage” and “Bonne Promenade” bag patterns- my sister Nina suggested the inspired names.
Simple and chic bags- perfect for a weekend getaway. And quick and easy to sew.
Here is the very large travel bag.
A quality quilted bag, practical, spacious and classy. It holds a lot of things, with style.
Wide zippered pocket on the back- perfect for valuable things.
It securely closes with zipper.
And this is the smaller shoulder or cross-body bag. It is made with heavyweight interfacing.
It also holds a lot, even a water bottle.
The same secure exterior pocket.
Magnetic snap closure.
And here are the bags made by my testers – as always, they help me make better patterns – THANK YOU!
Made by Jan – she quilted both bags; beautiful quilting and fabric choice.
Made by Susie. Look how beautifully she assorted the strap with the bag!
And how she quilted following the fabric’s pattern. Aren’t they beautiful ?
Happy sewing and thank you for your support.
