Back From Vacation!

What a great family vacation we had.  It was just what the doctor ordered and just in the nick of time to prevent me from short circuiting!  We took the girls and drove up to Tacoma, WA for the week to visit my husband's brother and his family.  The drive was loooong (11 hours) but the girls slept the whole way up because we drove all night.
Don't they look sweet?  Oh, and thank goodness for our dvd player on the way home!

So here is my latest and greatest project that I just completed tonight.  It is a messenger bag turned into a camera bag and I think it came out beautifully.  I used McCall's 5824 and made a few modifications here and there and then self-drafted the padded insert to hold the camera and lenses.

Above is the padded insert that is made to hold the camera and lenses and then I made another little pad to separate each item within the pouch.

I looooove the purple and contrasting pattern.  I used a plum denim for the outer and a quilting cotton for the lining and contrasting flap.  It is interfaced with fusible fleece, which gives the bag such a nice feel and weight.  I'm dropping it off tomorrow, so I hope my client loves it as much as I do!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post!  I made my daughter a new winter coat...
