Triangle Travel Tote Bag FREE sewing tutorial

This is the Triangle Travel Tote Bag FREE sewing tutorial from the designer The Sewing Directory.

This Travel Tote Project is to make a very spacious bag for holidays and weekends away or to carry lots of supplies to your sewing classes.

To give you the idea of the interior space the designer managed to fit 3-bed pillows inside of her bag so it will fit lots of clothes.

You do not need to patchwork the outside, if you want a quicker make then just use a single fabric cut to the same size as the lining fabric (36 inches long by 25 inches wide).
