I was commissioned to make a couple of lingerie travel bags by my Godmother to give as gifts to my mother and youngest sister for their upcoming trip to France. I must say I had my reservations about the way the lace was going to handle, but nontheless I dove into the project head-on. Here is what I came up with. They are two different designs because of course as things always tend to happen, as I finish the first, I always end up thinking of ways I could improve the next one. Here are the results.
This is the first one. It has only one zipper across the top and a simple stitch down the middle to create two pockets. I wrapped a hanger with double-faced satin ribbon to make it a bit more elegant.
With this second one, I actually followed a pattern that I have for some laundry room organizers. I made the back from satin and added two horizontal zippered pockets. It is certainly a better design than the first. I realized a bit late that I attached the zippers in the wrong direction. They should open from left to right. Oh well, you live and you learn!
