What’s more fantastic than throwing a few things in a bag and taking a quick getaway? Our Overnighter Bag celebrates the thrill of travel; with just enough room to fit the essentials, you’ll never be weighed down or unable to catch the next train. This carefree attitude is reflected in the bag’s straightforward construction and sturdy materials. It’s beautiful but not too precious to toss in the trunk!
To make your own stylish little duffle, measuring 10¾ inches tall x 19 inches long x 6¾ inches deep, you’ll need…
- ¾ yards of 10-ounce cotton canvas
- 5½ yards of 7/8-inch bias tape to match the canvas
- 3 yards of 1¼-inch cotton webbing
- A 27-inch non-separating zipper
- A 274-yard spool of cotton thread to match the canvas
- A 110-yard spool of cotton thread to match the webbing
- An Overnighter Bag full-color instructional booklet and template
Bon voyage and happy sewing! -Molly
