HERE for the magic carpet ride over to this great pattern. You might want to check out all the other wonderful patterns while your there, too!
Since I am leaving on a jet plane this week, to help my best friend (46 years, yikes!!) with a wedding in her family, I decided to make myself a little duffle and a matching curling iron carrier. My old one, had long since seen better days.
In the middle of the night the idea fairy struck (darn her for interrupting my sleep) and her focus seemed to be dealing with the 1 quart ziploc bags that you are required to have for your liquids when you travel now. Of course, I had to get up out of bed and hit my sewing room early today. I took a ziploc and used the measurements to make one out of a heavier clear plastic. On my last trip to Anchorage, as I was pulling my liquids out of my bag, the top portion tore off the bag, and there I stood with the zipper part of the bag in my hand. Thanks goodness the TSA agents thought it was funny and allowed me to take things on, since they do not have bags available for us anymore. So if this works out well with the TSA, and it should, since it "is" the exact measurement of a 1 quart bag, I will post a tutorial for making your own.
Till then happy stitchin'
