My friend Kristi, who you probably know already as schnitzel and boo has designed a really cool travel bag pattern which is released by Rebel Craft Media next month (more details are below). It's bag for confident beginners and up. Once I get moved into my new house, and settled I really plan on making one myself, but I was lucky enough to have one made for me for my quilt market booth last fall by Kristi, and since then I have used it constantly. It's a geat bag for a weekend away, or for taking as carry on because it squishes - you can shove it into the space under the seat on a plane, or into the trunk/boot of your car (especially if you have a car like me that has no boot space, this is a very useful factor!)
It's big, it's roomy and has a load of pockets so you can find stuff easily too. (Just excuse my crappy phone pics, my camera lead is awol since I started packing my house up for moving. *sigh*)
The digital Betsy Bag pattern is available for pre-order now from the Rebel Craft Media shop and will be launched on 1 April - the girls at Rebel Craft will also be hosting a sew along on their blog starting on 2 April - so if you want to make a fabulous bag to take with you when you travel then now is the time to join in!
You can also get a kit with all the bag hardware from the Snuggly Monkey shop !
I have a copy of the pattern to give away - yay!!
Just leave me a comment telling me what fabrics you would use to make the bag and I'll have Mr RNG pick a name next Friday 27 March - make sure you leave an email if you don't have one linked to your profile !!
And follow along with the rest of the blog tour......
