New bag

My fellow blogger, Salpal1, made some curtains and I commented on the travel theme.  Mr. Aitch and I just got a new GPS  and I thought a travel-themed fabric would be great to sew up a case for it.  So Salpal sent me some of her leftover fabric.

I loved the names of the states but wait…

…no West Virginia!

That just can’t be.

So using fabric markers and some rubber stamps, I altered the one side (sorry Oklahoma) to get at least one West (by God) Virginia on the cover.

I measured the size of the GPS and added an inch to each side so it would be easier to get in and out, added a zipper, lining, doubled the fusible batting for protection and called it done.The back…

The inside…Then I decided to make another cover/case for the window attachment and cord and have it large enough so everything would fit inside for when we want to remove it all from the car and keep everything all together.  I adapted the size of this pattern and made it a bit smaller.  I didn’t have enough of the Route 66 Fabric so I pieced together some complementary fabric to make it large enough.

Side A.

Side B.

Um, one side.

Inside with just the attachments.

All included.Ready to go.

Thank you, Salpal, for the fabric scraps.  I love it and had fun making it.
