I started my weekender bag during a lovely sewing day with the East Midlands Modern Quilting Guild back in April (I think, so long ago now). A lot of Quilting as You Go was done that day, but the hard graft of making all the panels and then all the assembling of the bag has been done at home since then.
It was really helpful to hear other people's tips from weekender bags they had made. I liked Di's idea for some internal zippy pockets, so I did two. (One in the outer pocket, and one big one inside the bag)
Then I snuck in some gathered elasticated pockets - one for a water bottle
and another big one inside to stuff 'things' in.
I have brought it on holiday to Cornwall with me..... so here goes for lots of gratuitous photos of my weekender bag by the sea!!
I also bought my sewing machine with me this week..... so lots of sewing has been going on. Days on the beach, evenings sewing and cream teas. The perfect ingredients for a holiday.
