Pattern Details

I am all about travel these days, and three trips ago I swore I was done with carried carry-on. When heading to Sydney last time, somehow I ended up with a nice wheeled boarding bag (yay!) and a giant, awkward duffle/tote thing that did not attach to my suitcase (boo!) so I still ended up carrying a heavy bag with my DSLR and a ton of other stuff. I knew standing in LAX back in September that this had to be my next pattern. Heading home, I left behind my cute little wheeled boarding bag so I could take my larger carry-on with me next time. I didn't take much home so even with room in my suitcases, there were still things I couldn't check, like my laptop and medication. I put my laptop in my big Daytripper and grabbed a reusable bag for the rest of it. I liked the concept of traveling light, but I needed a bag with some structure and a zipper and most importantly a designated spot for my liquids bag. And it most definitely needed to be compatible with my luggage AND be a great tote on its own. The straight sides make it perfect for a narrow airplane aisle, and it's not so big that it's going to be too heavy or be difficult to sort through. It's a simple design on purpose, so it won't take you more time to sew than it will take to travel to your destination. :) Testers have declared their Takeoff Totes as their new travel, work, teacher, knitting, and even diaper bags. When not flying, I use mine as a gym bag and as that extra tote I throw in my backseat with all the things I don't want to carry in my purse but might need while I'm out. I hope you find it as versatile as I do!
