Weekender Travel Bag sewing pattern

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Sew up this practical, and versatile overnight travel bag using medium-weight quilting cotton. Spacious enough to use for a weekend away and has plenty of pockets to keep your things organized. This would also be an excellent everyday bag or a gym bag.

This lightweight bag has a plastic canvas base insert to help give it structure and support, and a large zipper top for a wide opening to make it easier to find your things.

Making it out of quilting cotton will also make it easy to throw into the washing machine and clean.
