Cathedral Window Sloan Travel Bag

As with most projects, this had stared as a last minute want for a new WOW bag to carry at Market.  It has ended up to be a bag that never made it to Market but I did finish it two days ago and I cannot be more pleased!  The pattern I used is Sloan Travel Bag by Sara from Sew Sweetness.  I did modify the bag to meet my needs.  My needs were that I add cathedral windows to anything I can because they are the most elegant thing I can make and I really love them!




The fabrics are a variety of Tula Pink, Anna Maria Horner, Denyse Schmidt, Sis Boom and even more!  The background fabrics are all text prints.  I am really happy with the way it all came together to make this explosion of colors!


For the foam, I tried the Pellon Flex Foam.  It was easy to find and easy to work with!  I can recommend it for sure!  One of the things that was unplanned and one of the reasons I did not finish this in time for market was that all of the centers needed to be hand tacked down otherwise they pucker.  It was not attractive. All stitched down makes it look so much more finished :o)


The recessed zipper is by far my favorite closure for bags!  Easy to put in and looks very clean.  All of your stuff ( I have a TON of stuff) is zipper securely inside.


The bag was constructed with Aurifil 40wt.  It is a thicker and heavier weight great for the layers and the high use of a bag.


For a fantastic bag that can carry everything you need and more this is the one for you!
