My new travel bag, it was a chore to make but I do like the way it turned out. Reading independent designer instructions is so different than reading directions from the major pattern companies or maybe its the quality of illustrations that throws me because I am a very visual person.  I read and re read the instructions and sometimes I would fold them up and do it my way.  The dark brown is a faux leather knit fabric, I sewed it with a teflon coated stretch needle and only broke a couple needles in the process. It is interfaced with peltex a very stiff non woven fusible interfacing so the bag stands up on its own. I added a strap for my luggage pull handle and also added the zipper on the top. The original pattern was an open bag. It will hold my small purse, camera, sketching tools and all the other necessities. --Ann--
