Tomorrow we are going to farewell my husband’s little sister, Jacinta, who is traveling to Europe for several weeks holiday, and hoping to settle in England to work for a couple of years (sniff).
I wanted to give Cint something to take with her, but knowing she is traveling light, I wanted to give her something useful. These days there is not much point purchasing gadgets like travel clocks, or torches – her iphone will take care of all that. Instead I thought I would make her a bag for her laundry, to keep her clean and dirty clothes separate as she travels. I thought the large peg on the outside of the bag would be a fair hint as to the bag’s purpose, (and to customs officials everywhere).
I impressed myself, by finishing the bag with french seams (very suitable for cosmopolitan travel) as this means there are no raw edges inside the bag to fray. I made up my own proportions, but used this tutorial for guidance.
We will all miss you “Aunty Cint”. Travel safe, and if you fall in love with someone over there, like your brother Tim did, make sure they are willing to end up back here, in Australia, eventually!
PS. no dirty clothes were used in the taking of this photograph (but several clean towels were).
