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.
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!!
