Hello again, I don't know if you're like me, but every time I'm planning a trip I start to think about what bag I'm going to take with me. In an ideal world, I'd have the money, time and energy to make the perfect bag for every trip! The trip I took to NYC this weekend was no different, and I got tons of inspiration from a new craft book that landed on my desk a few weeks ago. " Carry Me: 20 Boutique Bags to Sew" was the perfect book to read as I daydreamed about my trip. This is a Japanese craft book, published in English by Interweave, and so it's full of beautiful photography, step-by-step directions, easy-to-follow line drawings and (you know how much I love this) full-size paper patterns included at the back of the book. In the end I ran out of time and didn't end up making a new travel bag, but I don't begrudge the time I spent poring over this book and dreaming! Whether you're heading on a trip yourself, thinking about making a gift for a wanderlusty friend, or just want to do some daydreaming of your own, I think you'll get a kick out of this book. You know how it works: For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, October 25th. I will post the winner here sometime on Monday, October 26th. Good luck!
