Holding Pattern Overnight Bag from Modcloth

January 20, 2012 Leave a comment

If boring baggage is becoming a pattern, try this charming, vegan faux leather overnight bag on for size! This cute carry-all is perfectly tailored for a quirky crafter, or a jetsetting Jane looking for a vintage-inspired valise. The stitchery-style prints and darling button details conceal enough space to stow all of your sewing supplies, souvenirs, and other accoutrement. In a shirtdress, wire headband, and Mary Janes, your seamstress style is stunning by any measure!

Okay, the description is a little over-the-top (notice how it specifies the whole outfit? “Shirtdress, wire headband, and Mary Janes…”), but still, it’s a cute bag. I’m impressed that it’s vegan, too! I don’t need an overnight bag, though, so I’ll just admire it from afar. 😉

Remember Charlotte’s big bag of goodies from the Quilt Festival? One of the items that caught my eye was the magnetic bookmark. While pondering what to post on the blog, I saw a post on someone else’s blog about this magnetic bookmark tutorial. Perfect! So without further ado, here is the tutorial as well as two related links:
