Escape Pod Travel Collection (Weekend Bag and Clutch Bag) sewing pattern (with videos)
This is a TWO PATTERN COMBO! A spacious weekend bag with a matching travel clutch. Both sewing patterns are included in the set.
Fits current airline carry-on specifications and is suitable for domestic sewing machines. Ideal for men or women. Perfect for a weekend away, the gym, or even as a baby changing bag.
This generous weekend bag has an ingenious wide-opening top flap silhouette, and pockets for your water bottle, phone, glasses, and electronic devices. The gussets mean we achieve a boxy structured shape and give a huge capacity for all your weekend essentials, and the flaps keep everything securely inside.
Folds flat for easy storage and is perfectly sized to add Packing Pods too (separate pattern).
The Travel Clutch has compartments inside, credit card slots, and a handy wrist strap – they make the perfect set.
