Coordinating Travel Bag Project

My niece asked if I could make her a bag to fit on top of her new wheeled suitcase and I remembered the Take-off Tote sewing pattern by Erin of Dog Under My Desk.  We checked the size to make sure it would fit on the top of her wheeled case, and then went shopping for fabric.…

Merci Karen, my French is far from perfect! Thanks for the welcome and looking forward to learning a lot more from peeps on the site!!

I did use the link, that is where I got my pattern from, but I did not see on there anywhere about how much material to use. Thank you so much!

I can't get over those bags! I absolutely love your bags.

I just saw the pin cushion tutorial. Thank you! I am going to try and follow the instructions without using a pattern -- I'm not much for patterns, but I do like to freestyle stuff (which probably explains why my projects turn out as they do!)

No that is not correct. I may have misunderstood the question.

Thank you for the tip on posting the link to my blog.I love the bags shown in your photo section!!! Learning how to make bags is on my "things to learn" list. Right  now, I'm still leaning how to cut straight lines for quilts (I'm not joking about this). I hope to sew well enough to be able to create fabric coasters for tea sets for gifts and swaps.

Thank you Karen. I'm looking forward to expanding my knowledge and this site looks like it will help quit a bit.
