This travel set was made as part of a "Hope Chest" Gift Basket that I made for my niece, Kelly's, Tea Party Shower last July. (See HERE for details of the Tea Party Shower, an explanation of the Hope Chest' gift project, and the first set of gifts. See Here, Here, Here, and Here for Parts 2, 3, 4, & 5).
In checking over the photos that I made prior to wrapping the gifts, I have made the sad discovery that I didn't take pictures of some of the gifts at all and many of the photos that I did take, are of very poor quality. I apologize! This set was inspired by some travel bags and totes in some of the Australian magazines: Handmades . (I am no longer able to find them in the shops here in Florida and I treasure the ten issues that I have. I don't know if they have gone out of business like so many of my other favorite magazines. Does anyone out there know?) I chose lavender and purple to complement Kelly's wedding colors. The cylindrical shaped bag (shaped circular bottom) on the left was made with a Kona cotton and a lovely piece of lawn that my friend, Jana, gave me. It had the hand of a Liberty and was a joy to work with. The bag contained a pair of pretty vintage edged glass goblets tied with purple and lavender ribbons. (One of the pictures I didn't take! :( ). I thought that the bag could hold some of the items she would be taking on her honeymoon.
