Here is the So Long Suitcase Bag and it's, quite frankly, gigantic. And for the upcoming Christmas season, just perfect. A wonderful college student gift (just think of all the laundry it will hold.) To pick up after the kids in the car. Or for toys. Or line it with laminated cotton and use it as a beautiful car trash container. Or, and this one is good, haul Christmas presents to Grandma's house with it. It could hold a huge art project. Of course you will look really skinny holding it as a purse. And finally try it as what it's titled: a little weekend suitcase.
Needed supplies include: 1 1/4 yards main fabric, 5/8 yard accent fabric, 1 1/2 yards lining fabric, 3 yards Peltex sew-in weight stabilizer and 3 magnetic snaps.
