Travel Pillow Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Goal: design a bag that has several possible functions, and list its possible uses: 1. college student using a large 20" x 20" bag to take their laundry to the laundromat. 2. kid's room - use large 20" x 20" bag to gather/store small toys. 3. a super large, durable bag for garage sale shopping, or holding extra car travel items. 3. adding a 20"x 20" pillow to the bag, to make a comfy stadium seat. 4. adding a 20" x 20" pillow to the bag for resting in a car during a long trip. 5. adding a divided pocket with a personal embroidery label (in this case MY STUFF). 6. adding center ties to keep the bag from gaping open and securing items inside. 7. adding a colorful cotton for lining and ties (in this case one in red, and one in blue). P.S. - hope you like my homemade witches spell book in the photos, and Mr. Pumpkin Head. I love Pun-kin Head. That's what my husband calls me. I think its a compliment, but not really sure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The bags are easy to make. I'm working on a pattern for you to try. Best wishes, my little pun-kin heads!
