Pattern Used: Travel Duffles with Trolley Sleeves by Studio Cherie
Featured Date: Week of 12-15-22
Hi! My name is Faye Pottorff and I live in Illinois. I have been sewing for over 50 years. I love making quilts but I also like sewing bags. This particular bag is for my granddaughter, Rylie. She is in the 6th grade and this is her first year being a cheerleader.
I opted not to do the Trolley Sleeves and instead I added a different side pocket and an inside pocket. My version has a zipper pocket on each side and a zipper pocket on the inside. Orange and blue are her school colors and this bag will perfectly match her cheerleading uniform. I hope she likes the this bag. (I’m sure she will love it!!!)
