Over-night Bag

This over-night bag was a really fun project. I used Simplicity pattern 2600 for quilted travel accessories.

Almost all of the pieces were simple squares (except for the ends) so it was really easy to cut out. Next time I’ll probably just measure the pattern pieces and cut them with my straight edge and rotary cutter, instead of trying to cut around the pattern paper.

The most difficult and time consuming part of the whole project was quilting the exterior to the lining. But, you can buy pre-quilted fabric and save your self a good bit of time.

I can see myself making more of these in the future to give as gifts. They’re also great for clearing out single yards of fabric that need homes.
