I wanted to make my sister a little something for her birthday. This girl has THE BEST wardrobe and has more clothes and accessories than anyone I ever met. Shopping and clothes are her thing. Because of this, I don’t always like to give her clothes. She has one of my first ever quilts (it’s a trainwreck. Trust me) and loads of zippy pouches. But nothing as fabulous as the weekender bag.
Initially, I wanted to make her a bag to take to work to replace the ratty old 011/12/27/some-christmas-gifts-part-1/”>laptop bag I made her a few years ago. I forget how big the weekender is, and made it anyway. A little too large to be a everyday work tote, but days she needs to bring along more, it will be great.
I used some of the last of my Alison Glass Lucky Penny prints. I didn’t go the scrappy route on this one, but I did still quilt (and used duck instead of interfacing) It stood very nicely and had the structure needed to be a great looking bag.
Thanks, Lindsay, for sending me some pictures. Being the rock star blogger that I am, I gave it to her without taking a single picture of the finished bag! Oops!
