Our Road Trip a.k.a Tool/Work In Progress Bag is officially over, and it was a little bumpy in some places but overall I hope it was enjoyable.

This bag is perfect for carrying around our projects when we are on the go, Β it can be worn as a backpack or as front bag.

We learned 3 techniques/ stitches: Star/Marguerite Stitch, Trinity Stitch and the most challenging to me was the Catherine Wheel/Starburst stitch.

I learned a few things: the Catherine Wheel technique can be tweaked to your liking and you can make more changes to a completed project, Β if you don’t “feel” the design. Remember it is over when you feel it is over/completed.

I had to change the button from top to bottom because I did not like how it looked at the top of the bag, when I sewed the button to the lower part of the bag, I “heard” a click …. it looked perfect now πŸ™‚

Here is my bag:
