Galaxie 3

Galaxie 3 is live on the Jalie website (and 50% off through Black Friday weekend) so I can finally show you a few of the projects I got to sew up! The Supernova Tote is a great little carry on bag that’s chuck full of pockets (and some secret pockets, too), is TSA compliant (so you can easily store it on the plane), and slips on the handle of your luggage so it doesn’t fall while you’re running to your next gate. I made the small version and used a canvas print for the fabric. I put this one to the test this weekend and it was the perfect size for storing cosmetics, carrying books\magazines, holding money and cards, as well as keeping my keys handy. I plan on making this one again in the larger size (and a nylon fabric) for Taylor since she flies here frequently and could use a larger carry on. While I’m at it, I may make one for myself too as I found that the canvas seemed to pick up fuzz of the blue plane carpet and I think I could use the larger size if we were gone for an extended period of time.

I also tested the Eclipse organizer. Like the tote, it has tons of pockets and even a zippered compartment to hold those small items you don’t want to get out of your reach. I had a lot of fun sewing this one up, but still haven’t used it in a purse…. I wound up stashing sewing essentials in it and keep it by my machines! I would love to sew this one up again as gifts this Christmas.
