travel bag

I have been wanting a travel bag that was 1.)pick pocket proof and (and being the key word) 2.) cute. So I went to my mother in law who had a pattern for such a thing and she helped me make one!

-make one long strap and one short strap
- loop the long strap through the short strap and it stays tightly closed


You can make one too. All you need two is different fabrics.... and a mother in law with a pattern. Easy enough. Now it can hold all sorts of traveling goodies!

sooo cute!! I love it! I want one too! Although it'll just hold boring things like a cell phone, keys, some baby wipes, maybe if I get really wild, I'll throw in some lip gloss! I think you should have a sewing party Erin!

Great bag! I like how you made one of the straps long enough to put over your head! Awesome!
