Us being super touristy. I think this is the only picture of me in the whole bunch.
Of course what that said to me was, totally need to make a new bag! Did I do this months or even weeks in advance? Ugh? NO, why make things too easy?
On top of packing for me and the littles I set out to make this bag about fours days before we were leaving. I didn't actually really get to it until two days before and finished it at around midnight the night before. Worth it? Yes!
The Low Down
Pattern: The Showoff Bag from my dear friend Made By Rae
Fabric: Amy Butler Lotus I think? Lithuanian linen my Mom got for me when she went there in 2009, some quilt weight cotton left over from Loki's quilt.

Bag on vacation lounging poolside (pool not pictured) I love this chair. It goes so well with my bag.
The one thing that happened because I was in a rush to make this bag, and you may have noticed if you have seen it before, is that when I carefully laid out my fabric I cut out the pattern for the lining instead of the main bag. It really wasn't a problem I had time to fix so I just skipped the pleats.
Maybe I'll leave more time to make my second one.
