Sloan Travel Bag



This bag is large – use it as a travel bag, school bag, laptop bag, or just if you have a lot of stuff! It features a 3-dimensional front pocket, zippered pockets, and padded straps. Keep everything safe with the top recessed zipper closure. There is also an elastic key strap in the lining, which will allow you to magically open a door without unhooking your keys from the bag! This pattern is rated for an intermediate-level sewist.

The pdf pattern includes 26 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 65 step-by-step color photos.
