The Vagabond Travel Bag

I love tote bags and I have created quite a few, in all shapes and sizes. I've noticed that BIG bags are usually preferred, the bigger the better and it has been suggested (many times) that a zipper closure would be just grand (ugh!). BIG bag, no problem. Zipper closure...OY VEY!! I have always been terrified of zippers, and for good reason...they're a pain in the tokhes, seriously! Well, I have been practicing and practicing the fine art of installing a zipper and even though I think I have mastered it, I still think they're a pain. BUT, in order to create the perfect travel bag a zipper was a must. The Vagabond Travel Bag features a heavy duty sports zipper, which is pretty cool. It also has three large pockets and it's quilted with batting, muslin and heavy weight interfacing. This is one sturdy and durable bag, indeed! Measures 23" wide at the bottom, 18" wide at the top and 17" from top to bottom. In the shop, ya'll!

Elegant and sassy, created with Centerpiece in Gray fabric from Summer Soiree by Paula Prass. A scattering of flowers against a cool gray background and topped off with a wild zebra stripe!
