Hoop Travel Bag

since starting The Dessert of the Month Club it was obvious i would make a Hoop Travel Bag. both patterns come from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery store. and i saw this one first. i paired a brand new modern oval with a retro sheet. not sure i like my "k" embroidery. not sure it needs it. or why i don't like it. so i may take it off. a bit puffy because i used 2 layers of batting. it does feel good. but next i will use 1 layer of batting or a woven interfacing. i say next because you really can't have too many of these.yeah to me. doing the happy dance to have come up with this awesome-zipper-pull on my own. that is until someone tells me i did not. if you want to do this. take 3 strands of 26 in. cotton knitting yarn. or not so much if you want it smaller. thread thru hole in zipper pull. and straighten until you have 6 ends together. separate yarns so that you have the 2 ends that belong to each other. braid until you like the length. place a knot in the end. snip the tassel even across. or if you are a free-spirit. leave it be. all raggedy.

Cute bag - should do the job to keep those desserts under control. Love the zipper pull too.
