Simplicity - 2600 Quilted Travel Accessories
This is a great pattern. There is nothing difficult about the construction, very straightforward. I am a quilter, so I spent most of my time quilting my fabric before assembling it. You want to cut the pieces larger (about an inch all the way around), and then cut them to the precise measurements ... more...
