Right before my blog’s server went down, I started work on Simplicity 2274 – the overnight bag. I highly recommend using a pre-quilted material – it’s quicker, easier, and looks very Vera Bradley-ish. Best of all, the lining is prettier than the muslin that the original pattern called for.
What surprised me most is how much I actually like jute webbing on this tote. I was skeptical at first, but it totally fits the style of the bag – I’m so glad that I bought ‘extra’ for future over nighters. Now all that’s left is to attach the zippered pocket and the ‘ends’ of the bag… I’m so excited to see this bag in action!
