Tech Bag

My boss's birthday was on Friday, the 13th. Her favorite pasttime is shopping so she is really hard to buy for. At least for me because I break out in hives just having to go to the mall. :o) I found a pattern on a blog some time ago for a cute little "Tech Bag". A quilted bag to take all your power cords for cell phone, camera, lap top, etc. when you take a trip. I wish I could give credit to the woman who made up the pattern but her name isn't anywhere on the pdf document. Here's the finished bag for my boss.

It measures 6.5" x 9" x 2.5".
My boss, Donna, is going with her daughter on one of those infamous 8th grade trips to Washington D.C. in May. I thought with a trip pending, I could make her this little bag for her birthday. I went to Target and filled it with travel goodies, including Tylenol, Advil and Excedrin. I thought that was good for a laugh since she was spending a week with oh, a hundred or so 8th graders!!! LOLShe loved it. Now I have to make me one. I loved it too. :o)

Great great job, Liz! Love it, and the headache stuff is hilarious. Hope she doesn't come back with all of it empty...

Looks good and is a good idea to have all those things together when travelling.
Would be good to have the link to the tutorial.

Having a giveaway if anyone if interested.
