Travel Companions...

This summer seems to be filling up with some travel plans and so I decide to make myself a purse/bag that would accommodate all the things needed when out and about on a day trip... like my camera, regular purse items, a bottle of tea, my Kindle, and a couple diapers and wipes for the little one - trying to eliminate carrying the 2nd bag! [There will still be a bag of back-up/extra stuff in the car though! :)]

This is what I finished yesterday...
The Day Tripper bag :)
 It is a little bit bigger than I first was thinking in my head...but I think the laptop might fit in it too, so that works! It's not real noticeable in the picture but on the left side is the water-bottle pocket and there is a pocket here on the front.
The only thing I think I dislike so far is the spot where the zipper meets... I'm wishing I would have gone with  either (1) trying to incorporate the longer zipper I had gotten for this project but decided not to use, or (2) gone with a coat/jacket zipper...oh w…


Last night I finally dug into the pile of shirts I had set aside to refashion into dresses/skirts for the girls. Today, I finished the first one...a dress for Amber!
This shirt was in a bag of clothes given to was too small for him, so now Amber can wear it!

The Body is the bottom section of the shirt, the upper horizontal band is from the arms, and the sleeves are the cuffs with some white material attached to match the bottom ruffle.
A new dress ready for Summer!

Now on to one for Liz!
