I love Instagram. There is so much inspiration to be seen and soaked in on a daily basis. Yes, it can be overwhelming at time (which is why I take social media breaks regularly) but most of the time it's awesome to share a space with so many other makers.
This bag was jump started by a bag that Kelby made for herself. She enlarged a Swoon pattern to use for a beach bag and when I saw it, I knew that it was perfect as a travel bag for Noi!
I think Kelby's bag is slightly smaller as this bag is enlarged at 141% - crazy, I know! But it turned out so good!
I used my favorite sparkle vinyl for the handles and the bottom base.
And I added a little BLING with some rhinestone rivets on the handles.
I already have plans to make another one! It's perfect for a long weekend trip! So much room!
