Sloan Travel Bag

$ 9.00

Brand Sew Sweetness

This bag is large – use it as a travel bag, school bag, laptop bag, or just if you have a lot of stuff! It features a 3-dimensional front pocket, zippered pockets, and padded straps. Keep everything safe with the top recessed zipper closure. There is also an elastic key strap in the lining, which will allow you to magically open a door without unhooking your keys from the bag! This pattern is rated for an intermediate-level sewist.
