Generously Sized Bags are Perfect for Travel

The Longer One is Roomy Enough for a Small Sewing Machine!
Make one or both of these generously sized travel bags for times when you need to haul a lot. Instructions are included for two sizes, and both have room for clothes and essentials for a few days way.
The long version will hold a Featherweight or other small machine, too. Make one up in beautiful fabrics for classes and retreats.
Sturdy bottoms support the weight of whatever you pack and the zippers are super easy to install.
Start with a beautiful focus fabric, an accent for the base of the bag and something complementary for the lining. Or, get creative with piecing or applique for your own special bag.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
