Even men need travel bags, and masculine laminated cotton isn't always easy to find. For Christmas 2013 I was on a travel/wash bag roll and everyone in my family received one as a Christmas gift, including the men. This is the travel bag I made for my husband, Simon.
The outside laminate is NYC Subway map - on licence from MTA and available only from The City Quilter in Manhattan where I teach. Available in 100% cotton and also as a laminate it's a really great print - I've used it for quilts
So the laminate was a perfect choice for Simon's travel bag...
... and inside I included some fabric from one of his all time favourite TV series - Star Trek by Camelot Cottons.
I fussy cut the fabric so The Enterprise was as visible as possible. I've turned the wash bag inside out here so you can see just how that lining looks!
And then the co-ordinating tissue cover and yes that too has Star Trek lining.
Over the last 12 months, Simon has travelled across the world pretty much weekly and the travel bag has boldly gone with him - it's safe to say it's been a huge hit.
