Spring is here and soon summer will be, which means time for weekend getaways! Whether you’re planning to travel by car, train, or plane, here are 8 super fun bag tutorials that will ensure you travel in style.
This Amy Butler weekend bag (via A Handmade Tale) is incredibly popular. People love to sew this up. It’s a great shape and super sturdy (Amy loves her interfacing).
The curves on this bag make it ideal for an intermediate sewer, but if you’re a beginner up for a challenge the results could be awesome! The pattern is free from Liesl Made.
We love the laminated chevron fabric used for this bag by Polka Dot Chair. This project, for the intermediate to advanced sewer because of the tricky fabric, is great for testing out some of those specialty feet that came with your machine.
If your weekend getaway means an adventurous trip to the park for rock finding or picture taking, then this retro camera bag via Happy Sew Lucky is for you.
A weekend tote made from a vintage blanket? What could be better? This one from A Beautiful Mess is super fun to customize.
The Portside Travel Set via Grainline Studio is a great option for the weekend or a full week away. The pattern even comes with a dopp kit option for toiletries.
