box bags


A little bit of sewing- I've been making up a new set of box bags. These are for my trip to Portland, Oregon tomorrow; I've stored my pile of electronics chargers in one and socks and PJs in the other.

I love this little swiss forest print. unfortunately given the layout I had put the houses horizontally on the bag, but that's OK as it's just going to live in my suitcase.

I did also sew up a new dress, although it's waiting for a hem and some trim to be added. When I get back I'll post the dress and the muslin; it was a little tricky to alter and I'm still not completely satisfied with the bodice fit.

What lovely little bags! I've been meaning to make a makeup bag in this style and I keep avoiding it for some reason, so you've inspired me now!

These are adorable! The great thing about bags is the fun fabrics you can use.

Oh I love that Swiss Forest print! A shame about the layout issue but really nothing you could do. Actually I had a similar issue this week. Lovely travel bags.
