Going somewhere? Got things to store or carry? Then you need just the right set of bags. Then here is a great pattern that has Pack and Go travel bags in three sizes.
Want to sew something for your guy to carry? This pattern works for that too because in the right fabrics, these are a unisex style and they are great for the gym and travel for guys too.
Just choose a fabric that is appropriate for the person receiving the bag and it will be a great hit! The designer created this set of bags to meet the needs of her child’s sports gear, her own cosmetics (because she loves the shape of these bags), and for travel. She especially wanted a bag that you could travel with folded up inside the larger bag and then fill up with souvenirs to bring home. She likes that they are lightweight, collapsible, and strong. She hopes they meet your needs as well.
The bags are fully lined, have zipper closures, designed for strength and low weight. The Medium and Large bags have webbing inside the cotton strap covers that create a beautiful strap and one that can handle what you want to put in it. The bottoms are flat and reinforced so they will stay flat and the wide opening makes it easy to get to every inch of space.
Small Pack and Go Bag: base is 7¼” by 4″, 4½” high, handles are 10″ long with a 4¾” drop. Has one outside pocket.
Medium Pack and Go Bag: base is 15¾” by 8½”, 9½” high, handles are 19½” long with a 9½” drop. Has an outside pocket and an inside pocket.
Large Pack and Go Bag: base is 24″ by 15″, 12½” high, the straps are 43¾” long with a 21½” drop; There are two large outside pockets and multiple inside pockets. You can carry the large bag in a number of different ways due to the longer strap length.
