Preparing for my travel....

In between sewing orders, I 'll try to find time to sew something for myself or my family. InsyaAllah this coming school holiday me and family will be going on a long planned vacation. One of the things on my to sew list was a weekend/ travel handbag for myself.

I won this lovely fabric form Lil Arwen's giveaway many moons ago. I love this print so much and i knew it would make a perfect dream bag.

I was inspired by this lovely bag here. I find it simple and yet big and roomy. I need it to be so as I normally put my things and Akif's too in my bag.

Another inspiration came from the Everyday bag made by Azie of Syasya Creative. I love how the bag has two way handle - sling and tote.

This bag is fully padded, has 2 large slip pockets inside, 1 zippered pocket inside and 1 zippered pocket outside. It also has a key holder and closes using magnetic button. Can be a sling bag (detachable handle/strap) or a hand tote bag.

However, the bag is a little sloppy when wearing it crossbody. Sohana of MyBotang gave a tip where I should also add interfacing even when it is padded. I have tried that in a similar bag i sew for a customer and love how it turned out. Will post on that bag next. Stay tuned...
