Are you off for a cheeky weekend away? – overnighting at a posh hotel? – want a really unique vanity case?
This is the ultimate in overnight bags – where you don’t want to take very much – but you want something really special.
There will never be another case in this fabric. It was designed by an American Designer called Tim Holtz for the Coats company – it was only produced for one year – and has been out of production for at least 6 years. All the panels are different – but coordinate their colour scheme – and the images are all about travel and time. The top is stickers from hotels all over the world – reproduced with all their age stains showing. The base is travel documentation / passports / tickets / timetables. The hinge cover is all tally type numbers. Inside the pocket is a striped matching fabric – with a patch pocket of watch faces. The side panels are a heavy plain brown canvas – and the binding is a cheeky animal fur pattern. The inside top and base panels are lined with a plain, heavy, cream fabric with a concealed pocket.
There is a single strap handle in another coordinating fabric from the palette – and all the ironmongery is the same as I use for all my dog collars – so it is super strong.
There is a long zip running round 3 and a half of the sides – with 2 sliders so that the zip is closed from the hinges to the centre of the front. There are metal coin charms on the 2 outer sliders and on the concealed pocket zip – just for fun. All of the bags and purses comes with it’s own Barker & Crabbe logo pin badge.
The overall size of the case is about 11″ square and 5″ deep. It is hard to be exact as the case is so lovely and squishy!
All the seams are fully enclosed so the inside is as neat as the outside – beautiful.
The fabrics are padded with a low loft fleece for softness and ‘bounce’ – and a firm stabiliser for strength and support. The top and base of the case are also padded with 4oz wadding making it quite a thick panel. I don’t add any cardboard or plastic sheet – this makes the item fully washable at 30
I only ever use 100% cotton fabrics – because it wears so much better – and I give the finished item a quick spray with a protective spray to resist the dirt.

I am a fully trained, professional seamstress with an insane passion for patterns and colours and way too much fabric. My big love is dogs – and you will find loads of my work features dog pattern fabrics for a really unique look. I started this new venture so that I could have an outlet for my bag making ideas, continue learning new skills, drafting my own patterns and have a little world of my own.
My bags and purses are all individual, interesting pieces – and you will find loads of hidden little extras. I love pockets, dividers and hidden zip pouches – and although I draw out my own basic patterns – I am constantly tweaking it so you will never get 2 the same. You will only ever find a small number of bags and purses listed because I take so much time over them.
I only ever use 100% cotton patterned fabrics – with high quality interfacing and wadding in between. I don’t ever add any cardboard or plastic sheets – this means that you can pop any of them into the washing machine – I do recommend that you put them into a washing bag or pillow case first.
I use high quality sliders that have been especially handmade for me and they are lovely and solid with beautiful curved ends.
My signature touch is always adding a couple of little charms to the zip slider.
You will find other examples of my sewing projects listed for sale – all of which have been made with the same attention to professional detail.
