DIY Carry On Travel Bag FREE sewing tutorial (with video)

This is a DIY Carry On Travel Bag FREE sewing tutorial (with video tutorial) from the designer Sewing Times.

This unusual mini suitcase travel bag can be carried by hand as a tote or carried as a shoulder bag, with the removable longer strap. It’s the ideal size for a couple of nights away, or to keep essential items with you and separate from your main luggage or suitcase.

The rear of the bag has an open piece that slides over the extended handle of your roller case so that it will sit on stop safely and you don’t need to carry it separately from your case.

The mesh pockets in the top of the bag are ideal for things you need to easily reach such as medicines, your phone or tablet, or your toothbrush and makeup so you arrive looking refreshed.

Once you’ve made one of these great bags it will be a great time to book a vacation and take your new bag with you!
