Ready to Travel

My new Ditty Bag!  It's one of ByAnnie's newest patterns and uses Soft and Stable to give the bag structure.  Very fun pattern to make!  The fabric I used was Hometown by Sweetwater, and while I was making this bag, I was smiling the whole time as I ran across towns that I had visited over the years.  Somewhere in the fabric there is even Chippewa Falls, where we used to live, but I didn't locate that name in the piece of fabric I was using.  I made the medium size (the pattern has instructions for three sizes) and it should be just right for my make-up.  I didn't line it in plastic, but, all the fabric and components are machine washable, so I should be good to go.  Some people have big  maps on their wall with push pins marking the places they visit.  I could just whip out my lipstick and make a mark on my bag.  Clever.  Jerilynn  P.S.  Thanks for all the comments lately.  It really is so much fun to get a message!  Almost as much fun as sewing.


  1. I love it. I haven't used soft and stable. And while I'm looking at this I'm imagining you sewing and still thinking of the photos of your studio and dreaming about having that much beautiful space to work with someday. And siiiiighing.

  2. This is soooo cute!

  3. Nice make up bag! I think I have to try the Soft and Stable!
