Good day All, I finally finished this Amy Butler Weekender Travel Bag I started in January.  My delay in finished came as I am not a great hand sewer. But I proved myself wrong.  I asked a friend to hand sew the interior to the exterior of the bag.  She told me NO, which I was cool with as I need to work on my hand sewing.  I am glad I did the hand sewing myself after all.  The exterior fabric (whole bolt) was given to me by a church member and the interior was bought at my local Joann Fabrics.  I used fleece interfacing instead of the Timtex(Peltex) to give the bag a more comfortable feel. I lined the pockets with the same fabrics!
 



Front has my nickname (given to me by my neighbor) machine embroidered!!

You must!! Just a hint: make the pattern pieces as you go. Once you make them it makes for easy construction of the bag. Use fusible fleece instead Timtex(Peltex) and wonder/binder clips to hold the pieces together while sewing.
