Crimson and Clover Train Case

This is the Crimson and Clover Train Case designed by Sara from Sew Sweetness
I have a huge fascination with retro styled bags.  This case could be used for many things: make-up, toiletries, jewelry, toys, craft items, etc...
Here is the inside of the case.  I love all the pockets around the side and the big zip pocket on the lid.
I only made few changes to the bag.  I wasn't able to find a 32" zipper in the color was I was looking for.  However, I did mange to find a 30" zipper.  So, I made the bag tab piece a few inches longer. 
I used home décor fabric for the exterior fabric and quilt fabric for the inside.  For the lining pieces, I used SF-101.  In place of the Soft and Stable I used automotive headliner---I think that's what it is.  I bought it at Joann's.  I did use Peltex #70 on the inside of the top and bottom.  I felt it needed a little more stability for when items are inside the case.  It could be because of the larger size of the bag. 
This pattern comes in three sizes.  This is the largest size.
