Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Suitable for intermediate / advanced who are confident with using a sewing machine and have some knowledge of inserting zips, although clear step-by- step instructions are given to walk you through the project.

Pattern Description:

Stitch this fun, modern take on the traditional weekender / travel bag which I've designed using vibrant Michael Miller fabrics. It will work well with any medium weight cottons of your choice.

The travel bag is very practical, yet fun and stylish. It has plenty of room to fit essentials for a night or weekend away and has handy exterior and interior pockets, to keep small things close at hand. This versatile bag could also be used as an everyday hold-all or gym bag. The bag closes with a zipper along the full length of bag top, making for easy access to contents.

You can make it for yourself, family, friends or you can SELL your finished items - please credit SusieDDesigns as the designer in all descriptions.
