Swoon Overboard

So it seems I went a little overboard recently for our quick trip to Sydney, when I decided to make some matching  bags and a wallet with my Tula Pink fabric.

1 X Brooklyn Traveler
1 X Ramona cross body
1 X Della Wallet ( hacked)
1 X TBGIM aka Pete

* Brooklyn is fabulous for airline travelling, it fits heaps, has a zip top closure, a long strap, as well as the short handles, and I added a slip pocket inside and an extra zip pocket on the outside for my phone.

* Ramona was perfect for our day trip around the Harbour, the adjustable long strap meant I could wear it across my body and have both hands free, it fits my iPhone 6plus, my wallet, lip balm, gloves and my knitted hat ( its was cold on the water).

* Della is just the right size, I changed the closure to a rivet snap over the top of the 2 zippered pockets, and it has the absolutely right number of card pockets.

* TBGIM aka Pete, is also the perfect/ right pick for me, tall, cute and my best friend.

Note: When we got home I decided I needed to tighten the card pockets of my Della, and I also added a little more interfacing on the inside.This was very easy to do as all I had to do was unstitch one of the zip pockets, make the adjustments and stitch it right back up.
