This bag was designed to organize the many things we need when traveling but at a fraction of the weight bags normally weigh.
There are pockets for passports, medications, vaccine cards, credit/debit cards, flight information, documents, you name it. The Large bag has twenty-six pockets.
There are step-by-step written directions and full-color photos and/or diagrams to help you complete your bag. One of the Testers is putting out a video tutorial and the designer hopes to have one as well.
Large is 11″ by 9″ by 3″. The smaller one is 8 3/4″ by 7 1/4″ by 2 5/8″ when completed.
This is NOT a beginner bag. Due to the number of pieces and construction methods this bag is suitable for the more advanced bag sewist. The bag pattern has been fully tested by a team of advanced sewists prior to publishing. The bag can be made on either a domestic machine, as the one in the pattern itself, or with an industrial machine.
There is a video sewalong for this bag from Faithwerks Designs that you can watch below
