Are you ready for the weekend?

Introducing my latest completed project “The Weekender” pattern courtesy of Liesl made.

This was certainly a challenging bag to make, due to the limited instructions provided – however, I am quite pleased with the finished result.  I have added an internal zip pocket too.

Fabric was from the upholstery section at IKEA and the dainty floral fabric was a bargain at Spotlight a few weeks ago.

This bag is fairly large, for photos I have placed five bath towels inside to show the shape off nicely, so that gives you an idea of how big this is.

I fixed webbed strapping to the handles, it is a mix of masculine and feminine, therefore ladies, your man wouldn’t mind carrying this bag for you on a weekend away!!! Hint hint….

If I were to make another of these bags, I would certainly add a slip pocket to the outside.


The Weekender!
