Sorry this post is late...

This is how far I've gotten with TT Kitten 2 but this was not all done in the IHSW weekend.

HAED TT Kitten 2 as of 20/7/14

I made the larger version of the Buttercup Bag. I made so many mistakes on this one compared to the first, I will now remember that just because I have already made one, it does not mean I can rush through the second! This one is just for me though so I don't mind and it was made using fabric that I already had.

Following the photos of the travel bag I made, I have now got another 3 on my to do list and that isn't including my sister's.

Finished already

I popped to the shop today to get the threads I needed and managed to finish both bags off today so without further ado...

This is the large bag, it can even fit a single duvet in there! Being that this is the first quilting/big bag making I've ever done, I can say although it is far from perfect it will be used and was a great learning piece. This has one good sized pocket that has a zipper and a smaller one that you could put phones, keys, etc. I am proud of the zippered pocket on this turned out great!

This is my smaller bag which I intend to use as a carry on when flying. Still not perfect but I learned a lot from the first bag and this did not have missing inches ;) This one fit my big fluffy dressing gown and there was still a fair bit of space, it also has a trolley sleeve so you can safely rest it on a suitcase and and 2 good sized pockets.

Oh well back to the pinning and sewing as I need to do the small one in pink for my sister.

Just a quick update

I've mainly been sewing...well trying to. I started a duffle bag but not only is it too big to double up as a flight bag, I also ran out of thread. I miscounted along the way so it's around 6 inches short! I've found there is more detail given in the smaller version of this bag by StudioCherie. So I have a large one that is nearly finished, a small one for me that is half way finished but I'm about to run out of thread again (what am I like?) and a small one for my sister that is cut out but not started.

This is the start of the wedding sampler which has a deadline of September.
