I liked the faux leather that I used on this (click) bag so much that I made another travel bag. This is an Amy Butler pattern and I have had fabric and zipper for it for a couple years. I deviated from my original plan which I had pretty much forgotten and used the new fabrics which looked wonderful with the navy stripe that I have had for years. I made it an inch wider than the pattern. The faux leather fabric handles were thick enough that it was difficult to pin so I taped the handles in place and sewed. I also used my little red clips for holding some parts in place.
