Retro Travel Bag I was browsing through my Pinterest boards the other day and came across this cute Retro Travel Bag, perfect for my upcoming trip. I was suddenly inspired to sew! It was nice feeling that way again...I think maybe the idea of having something to blog about was also giving me a little push. I left off the piping since I didn't have any and added lots of pockets, including one on the outside. I also made my own handles and made them long enough to carry the bag on my shoulder. I didn't have the right sized zipper so I had to refigure the sizing of the side pieces and had to do quite a bit of readjusting to make it fit to the front and back pieces, but made it work in the end. Every piece of fabric except the two large lining pieces has heavy interfacing attached. When it came to attaching the front and back to the side piece I threw the tutorial out the window. For the front and back I basted the outer and inner pieces together so they wouldn't shift while I was sewing. Simple!
