Description

I had a customer request for a very specific travel bag. She paid $395 for her current bag, but she wanted to see my version. I don't copy other peoples designs, so I set out only with her needs in mind for carrying her notebook computer, having a trolley sleeve to carry the tote through the airport, and approximating the total capacity of her current bag.
The result is the departure satchel.

I tested it myself and can honestly say this is a bag you will love for travel. I went away for a week and used one of my full sized duffles and this bag too. During the trip, we did a 2 day one night excursion for which I only brought this bag and it was perfect!

You can pack your essentials for 2 days and a night, use it as your carry-on and be okay if your luggage gets lost.

It will also work fantastically as a diaper bag. Great capacity and pockets.

Dimensions:
15" wide
12" high
6-8" deep

For those of you who carry huge purses, here is your new favorite.

Things you will learn in this pattern:
+ A pocket I just made up and have never taught before that you will want to add to cargo shorts and simple totes - I call it the origami pop-up pocket.

+ How to add a secret pocket - so awesome for traveling.

+ The pouch front pocket is also a new one for this bag. It is like a kangaroo pouch, one big pocket, but it is shaped such that you can carry a water bottle standing up in one side and still access the other side.

I have been listening to you and know you have been wanting travel bags with interior pockets. This bag is it. I will be doing a duffle sized version of it as well. That one has some new pocket designs that I think you will love too.

There is no quilting for this bag, just get right to it.

If your fabrics are washable and preshrunk, this bag is washable too.

It's my new favorite bag! I hope it is yours too.
