I've made this one before. I am such a fan of how easy to knit and lovely this shawl turns out. This special yarn is from a family trip to Lake Tahoe. The local dyer perfectly captured all of the beautiful greens from all of the trees surrounding the lake. We did a lot of hiking through woods and up mountains on that trip so this was the PERFECT souvenir.
The kids made moon sand. Recipe was one cup of flour per ounce of baby oil. Next time, we will put the food coloring into the oil before adding it to the flour. It didn't mix well with the already added oil and flour mixture.
After drooling over these bags for a year, I finally convinced myself to make one. I started with the large size. I really like it and may also make a small one.
Notes for next time:
A yard and half was not enough fabric
Pick out some premade bias tape that matches your fabric
Wide webbing will save the trouble of making handles
Extra stabilizer in the base might be a nice addition
Zip pocket zipper only needs to be 9" for large
Zip pocket lining might be a bit long
Interface both exterior and lining with 809
Fusible fleece on exterior
Vivian. I love most of the bags from this designer, I've made literally dozens. This Vivian Traveler bag is very difficult to get along with. We wrestled our way to completion. I won't be making any more of this pattern.
