“Feet, why do I need them, if I have wings to fly?
Frida Kahlo

My new travel bag, made with some CAOK-gifted fabric featuring my favorite artist, from Viv of Maine. Amy Butler birdie sling, canvas interior and handle. Red polka dot pocket for luck inside. Will hold: stack of books, journal, camera, Nalgene, snacks, knitting project, gum, lip gloss and my passport. Something about traveling with a bit of Frida makes this all that much more exciting!

  1. SQUEE! I love it!!

  2. another gorgeous bag! Etsy now says my pattern has shipped, but I ordered it over two weeks ago. I am getting antsy to make my own birdie sling with some birdie fabric I have 🙂

  3. Hi Kelli,
    Love this bag style (hint hint ;)) But no nalgene, it contains that yucky chemical BPA! Get a nice stainless bottle, they say it makes the water taste better, too. Though I thought the point of water was that it had no flavor? Have a great trip! Can’t wait to hear about it and see pics!

  4. Wow! It can hold all of that!!??!! I love your choice of fabrics 🙂

  5. Totally cool Frida fabric!! Wow, I am envious.

    Cute bag and safe travels! Hugs.

  6. vaya con buena suerte, mi amiga.

  7. I sent my mom a link to “Segundo Pajaro,” and she loved looking through the rest of your projects. She sent an extra email to me tonight with these two lines:

    “Whoever is the ‘person’ /sewer on the blog site (that was in the forwarded connection) was a great seamstress…her sewing was good. I was impressed. Pass that along when you are blogging with that person. The red apron was precious.”

    She used to be a home ec teacher. I don’t think she can help but judge one’s work (maybe that’s why I never learned to sew!). Anyway, I just had to pass it on.

    (and in the first email, she mentioned she has that pattern. she bought it last week at a quilting shop. there went any motivation I had to make it for myself…)

  8. I LOVE that fabric. Great bag. 🙂

  9. Another really nice bag! Frida will surely take care of you and bring you safely home!
