I've started to make special Sasha/Gregor carrying tote bags - based on the tote bags I used to make when sewing for craft fairs and the bag we were given at the Sasha Festival in Ohio last year. All bags are fully lined with pockets inside and can have domes closing them if required. All seams are sewn and then overlocked, but with no exposed seams. The bags have a 'gusset' to add width to them so that you can fit in all the necessary supplies for a day out, such as a purse, camera, book, packed lunch, drink bottle etc...
I trialled one of these bags on my trip to Australia and New Zealand and found it a great success as plenty of room both inside the bag and also for carrying a doll.
This was the bag I made for New Zealand which many of you will have already seen.
In action, it carried my purse, camera, kindle, passport and various other bits of paraphernalia!
Out and about!
Of course not everyone wants to be seen out and about with a doll, but for those that like to travel with one and visit various places, this is a lot easier than having them stuck in a back pack or bag that you have to lift off your shoulders, undo and haul them in and out of all the time.
