The infamous Amy Butler Weekender Bag! Tick and Check!
I’m super happy with how it turned out!
There is heaps of help out there on the net. I found Milly’s version particularly helpful. I followed her idea to use a vinyl on the bottom to make it waterproof and a little more hard wearing.
I'd read somewhere that you can fit a heap of towels into the weekender so I thought I'd test it.
I had a magazine to put in the pocket but got out voted by the boy. He thought a dinosaur book would look much better in there!
So course he then clamied that it was 'his' bag! I don't think so buddy!
And you can open it right up for packing!
Loving how neat the zipper looks!
And about those towels - 6 bath towels + 2 kids beach towels + 2 hand towels.....not a bad effort
|Excuse the random linen plucked out of the messy cupboard....on the list for spring cleaning!|
Oh and just so you know.... the bag works fine without the lining!
Hubby and I managed to get a night away, a few weeks back, while my brother looked after the boy. I was totally bummed that I hadn't finished the bag in time....but took it anyway! Managed to fit a change of clothes each (including jeans!) and a few toiletries. Looks great with my camera/handbag for nights away!
