Some notion bags for traveling...
I'm going to be going to India in late September on business for a couple of weeks. I've decided to make a top and take it with me and do some hand-applique on it while there, so will need some bags to take my stuff in.
I used some 1800s reproduction fabrics to make them out of, with a zipper on the side of each one. I made the larger one to take my hoop in, and the smaller one will be used to carry scissors, thread, etc., and will slide inside the larger one. I used batting between the layers to make them cushioned as well, and then quilted a simple cross-hatch across them. Now I (hopefully) won't go stir crazy while I'm over there. :)
