So, I made my son some luggage some time back (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=173041.0) using this tutorial:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156560.0

It was time I made my other son some luggage too.  So, here it is!!:


Yes, it's for a boy - an 8 year old boy!!  He chose the fabric including a hot pink plain fabric for the lining!!  The outer fabric is called 'Bad to the Bone' by Robert Kaufman. 

I used a super heavy duty interfacing.  I literally wrestled with it on the sewing machine but I'm extremely pleased with the result.  The bag is empty in the picture so it is standing up by itself.  It's almost like cardboard.  I would highly recommend it.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for your kind words!  Wink

I'm in Australia and I got the interfacing at my local patchwork shop.  The receipt doesn't show the brand name of it.  I'll ask for the name of it next time I'm in the shop.

I used cotton herringbone tape (which is kind of like a seat belt except in soft cotton).  Very comfortable on the hands.

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.
