To Market, to market...

so let's fill these bags! These are my finished bags I will be loading up for my trip to Minnesota. They are some of "My Favorite Bag's(pattern name) that I have made so far. The fabric is a Riley Blake(Utah designers), called Andrea Victoria. It comes in three colorways. I just love the teals and blacks. Also it matches my lappy quite well. Fun retro black dots are used in the tie and the inside pockets.

Lots of room inside to pack all my carry on items, but plenty of room to bring home extra loot!

This is a matching accessory case that fits just right in one of the pockets.
And these...
are bags for my laptop. I found a pattern that I liked in the pattern book and remodeled it a little bit(maybe more). Then I made a computer sleeve to give my lappy a little extra cushion.
A close up of the flower on the outside.
On one side of the bag I put a elastic casing in both the top and the bottom to hold all the cords, mouse, etc. They won't be going anywhere.
She fits in just beautifully.
I'm off to pack my bags, the next time I will be posting it will be from market. Stayd tuned in, I will try and post something everyday.

Shannon...was so great to share an aisle with you at Market! You and Emily were "sew" much fun! We're excited to start sewing with her patterns. Btw...loved your bag and drooled over it from across the aisle!
