This is the Xanadu II which gives you two new smaller sizes to the popular Xanadu Traveler Bag! It’s the ideal small duffle bag to use for travel, a weekend away, a carry on carry-all bag, or for a trip to the gym or pool. The smaller size makes a neat everyday handbag.
The designer RLR Creations Sewing was asked by many customers for a smaller Xanadu to use as an accompaniment to the Xanadu Traveler Bags or to use as a handbag. The designer and their testers created the Xanadu II set with two new sizes and both options for a bag with or without the bottom zip compartment.
With the Xanadu II, the top corners unhook for easy packing. The perfect carry handles along with a long strap allow you to carry the Xanadu II over your shoulder or even to wear it crossbody. Best of all, easy to complete bottom zipper compartment with no drop-in linings or curved zippers to install.
The Xanadu II comes in two new sizes and two options to allow you to create the perfect travel bag to fit your needs:–
- Option 1: Create the ideal travel bag with a bottom zipper compartment to hold an extra pair of shoes, toiletries, or even dirty clothes. Perfect for the gym to carry shoes and a towel.
- Option 2: Make the perfect getaway bag with a spacious interior and a contrast bottom that lets you pack it all in.
Both options offer two sizes to choose from:-
- The Xanadu II Mini Size: Measures: 8″ High, 11″ wide, and 6″ deep. Perfect for all your essentials to use as a toiletry bag, handbag, or to carry small stuff you don’t want to put into your larger Xanadu Travel Bag.
- The Xanadu II Tote Size: Measures 10″ high, 12″ Wide, and 7″ deep. Perfect for a work bag, day away bag, a small gym bag, or even a carry-on bag.
The Xanadu II is a full pattern with instructions and pattern pieces to complete either the Mini Size or Tote Size Xanadu with either a Bottom Zip Compartment or a Contrast bottom.
