Easy DIY Instructions to make a Journey Purse! This PDF purse pattern is a tutorial with step-by-step color photos and paper templates.

The Journey Purse is a cross-body (or not) shoulder bag, which will hold all your travel necessities in a messenger-style pocketbook. The purse has a 6-slot credit card holder and a zipper pocket for bills and change under the flap. Behind that is also a full-size pocket for your passport. Inside there is another, divided pocket for necessities like a pen, sweetener packets, or tissues. The purse main compartment will hold your camera, small brush, and lots more! There's a bonus pocket on the back that's perfect for your tickets. The flap closes with a magnetic snap.

Smaller than some purses, but bigger than the Adventure Bag, this one is great for a longer journey. Size comparisons of my purse designs: http://sidquilts.blogspot.com/2012/04/size-matters.html

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! Pattern pieces are also included for those who'd like to cut and pin!!
