Pattern Details

My wife and I travel often. 99% of the time we use carry-on bags only. We wanted a bag that would not take up more room than the contents it contained. This bag fit the bill because you can stuff it into a carry-on bag and it will not take up much room. Hand sewing the drop-in lining takes a bit more time, but the results are worth the effort. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic Sewing Skills - Some Hand Sewing Required. If you have weak hands then this may be a problem for you, so be aware that sewing through the zipper tape takes some strength. I've created a sew-along video series that shows you step by step how to complete the bag. These videos provide the instructions to complete the bag. Therefore, there are no written instructions at this time. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5 inches Tall by 7.5 inches wide by 4.75 inches deep Four PDF Patterns are included for you to download.

Recommended with this pattern

  • I prefer 22" zippers as they make is easier to sew in.
  • 1/4 yard for inside of the bag (or a 2nd Fat Quarter)
  • 15" plastic zipper or longer. ( I often match my zipper color with my lining.)
