Fabric is a great travel gift. It’s easy to pack and unique–like this Queen’s Jubilee fabric from The Cloth Shop in Edinburgh. I knew my royal–watching old friend Imogene would love it. So I bought 1/2 meter, brought it home and turned the textile into a quick, two-hour tote.
Instead of boxing strips, I tore two identical rectangles, stitched three sides together and finished the seams. Then I formed a “mock-box” by folding and pressing a triangle across the side seams.
Finish and hem the top edge, add handles and you’re done.
So while the travel fabric is new, I’m still rewinding lots of trims in the project.
