For Lindsay

The last time my faraway daughter came to visit 
she noticed the travel duffel that I made her sister.  
[How many links can a girl throw in one sentence???] 
 I took note when she said she liked it and wanted one for herself.  
I don't know why but when one of my girls likes something that I make I feel very honored.

I have never had a hard time buying stuff for Lindsay, 
but for some reason I couldn't make up my mind on fabric for her bag.  
So in the end I bought the fabric that I had been eyeing for myself!

The one thing that I didn't like about Becca's bag is that the cool burlap cannot be washed,
so I altered the pattern to make Lindsay's machine washable.
The lighting isn't the greatest since I was rushing to get the 
birthday box in the mail before the post office closed.

Here's a side view with the zippered pocket.  
This is a great pattern from Studio Cherie. It's very easy to follow.
 Or if you don't want to make your own, 
Cherie has some ready to purchase.

Love your fabric choices and looks like you did a great job adapting a washable handle. You should be proud. I am sure your daughter will love it with every trip she takes.
