I'm headed out of town for NYE and decided that I wanted to travel handmade... specifically Tula Pink Style. It isn't a secret that I love Tula and all of her fabrics she designs!!
The "travel handmade" craze has been popping up on Instgram & Blogs for quilt retreats and such. I decided this was the perfect trip to add some new bags to my collection so that I could travel with all handmade bags!
Here is a breakdown of my stuff.
The top bag is my Lily Pocket Purse that I made back in October. It is a pattern by Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs. It is the perfect bag for when you want a small purse or are traveling.
All the fabrics are from Tula's Salt Water collection.
Next in the stack is my Cosmo bag from Amy Butler's Style Stitches book. I made it back in January of 2011. It is made of all Neptune fabrics.
The next item is my Candy Box quilt. I always take a quilt with me when I travel. Nothing compares to cuddling up with your own quilt. The Candy Box is a tutorial I did on the Moda Bake Shop back in 2009. It features Tula's Hushabye fabric collection.
Then comes the Great Getaway bag from Lisa Lam's book, The Bag Making Bible. It is a mix of two fabric collections: Salt Water & Neptune.
I made this bag on Thursday. Yes in just one day.
The hardware is from Nancy Zieman's colletion with Clover. The handle tabs and clasp tab are from the Neptune collection & the main print on the bag is from Salt Water.
I also used Neptune for the bottom side areas. I laminated it & the bag bottom with with Slicker by Lazy Girl. This way I can just wipe dirt off of them!
I'm very excited to use all my Tula Pink bags for this trip!! I won't be posting while I'm gone but you might see a photo or two pop up on Instagram or Facebook.
Have a very happy & safe new years eve!!
