that turn into
Bag when you need it -
wallet when you don't.
Quick background - I remember being fascinated by these bags as a child. All the airlines used to give these out as gifts to passengers - rectangular solid-color vinyl wallets that turned into thin ripstop nylon bags when unzipped. Does anyone remember those? They've always been on my to-do list, not only because I love anything that looks like there's magic involved, but for the challenge of sewing yet another bag with all the raw edges tucked away.
And then there's Jessica Jones' incredible fabric - home dec. weight, modern, gorgeous, gorgeous prints (and you know I don't say that often).
I thought, with summer coming, I'll need a few of these to throw in the car, or in my purse, for emergency farmer's market shopping, or emergency swimsuit-containing, or emergency library visiting, or emergency anything, really. And then it hit me - why be confined to rectangles? I can do round! I love round.
I think I'll make some for the girls' teachers when they say goodbye for the school year - solid canvas wallet that they can draw on with fabric markers, and a funky print bag inside.
Make some with me?
