Default Playing with selvedges!

I have wanted to tackle a travel bag for some time. I love working with selvedges and denim...so delved into my stash and went for it!!! It's been a learning curve!! It would have benefitted from firmer interfacing but I'm quite happy with my first effort! I even managed the zip!!! (I have an aversion to zips!!!) Considering the thickness of some of the seams I'm amazed I only broke one needle when I hit the zip end!!image.jpegimage.jpeg

What a pretty travel bag! It looks very roomy and practical. Great job!
(I know what you mean about zippers; I am the same.)
