This set of bags is perfect for travel. Available in two sizes (regular and long), you will be able to pack a few days worth of clothing and essentials inside! The bottom of the bag is sturdy, and the top zipper is easy to install (if you have made a zipper pouch before, you will be able to do this easily!) – no hand sewing necessary!
The pdf pattern includes 13 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 28 step-by-step color photos.
