Now, you might remember from two or three posts ago that I made the pictured bag for my friend Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy, hence the name "The Betsy Travel Bag". She was so excited about receiving this bag that she immediately blogged about it. (This is the part where I have to explain that if I had actual, proper internet I would have linked to that particular post. But, since I am blogging from the otherwise awesome Blogger app from my phone, you'll just have to go sleuthing.) This is E's picture that she texted to me shortly after opening her package:
The back of the bag has yet another pocket, this time it's one of those between-the-lining-and-the-exterior types; perfect for stashing your wallet, airline ticket, Sky Mall catalog, rental car agreement etc.
This bag isn't stiff or super heavily interfaced. I travel quite a bit and have to stuff my bag at my feet in a plane or squash it into an oddly shaped space in the trunk of a car. A crisp, squarish bag isn't so easily shoved into these kinds of scenarios.
Finally, the front detail. Two accordian pockets with D-Ring strap closures for good looks. The carry handles and extra generous strap make shoulder carrying or toting along with your wheeled suitcase super easy.
I'm really excited about this pattern. I am looking forward to finalizing the details and instructions and then watching all of you create something from it!
