Your set of travel bags is almost complete! In this month’s project we’ll add that must-have travel necessity —an overnight bag.
Functional yet stylish, this sturdy duffle bag carries everything you need for a weekend trip — and easily fits in the overhead bin or under the forward seat.
Get Out of Town 2.0 may look intimidating because of its size but don’t be deterred. You’ve already learned all the skills you need to make this bag.
Refine your bag-making skills with these expanded techniques:
- Make a double slip/zip pocket for the front of the bag.
- Skip the zipper/side strips that we’ve used in most of the previous projects and attach the top zipper right to the body of the bag!
- Discover tricks for making sure things are centered and evenly spaced.
- Master joining the ends of binding as you make a comfy shoulder pad for the carrying strap.
