Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I am actually on Monhegan Island, Maine this week and loving every minute of being here. We are having the most incredible weather. I'm hiking, going to yoga classes and knitting. I'll post a little more about my experience here tomorrow.
As you know, the current sew along for Sew News is the Grainline Studio Portside Travel Set. I am not exaggerating when I say that I am hooked on making the dopp bag. It is such a fun project and so gratifying. I have now made 2 and I just can't help but admire my work!!! So if nothing more, give the dopp bag a try.
I used a faux leather for the first dopp bag that I made. A great material to use as you won't worry about sitting the bag on a wet surface since you can just wipe it dry.
The sew along begins with the pouch as it is so very easy to make and a great place to start and build confidence if you've never made a bag like this before. From the pouch, we move directly into the dopp bag.
HERE on the Sew News blog. Next week we'll jump into making the duffle bag. It too is fun to make, but there's just something special about the dopp bag. Make one and you'll see ;)
