Pattern Description:

I created this bag out of the necessity to be unique and have an eye catching bag when traveling. This bag can be customized for so many people. Men, Women, Kids, Grandparents...virtually everyone on your list. I also like that I can take this bag with me to the beach.

This bag has the unique feature of being able to change it's size. During the week, clasp down the sides and use it as a purse. Then on Friday when everyone is ready to head out for a fun weekend, run home, unclasp the sides, fill it up and you are ready to go.

The pattern features pictures and instructions for virtually every step of the process. I have included a larger font for ease of reading and clear pictures. I feel if you have a basic knowledge of sewing, then you can make this bag.
