travelers bag

Added Dec 18, 2008

by merita

Slap Ob Idrijci,...






I needed a bag … smaller than backpack. So that I can put in things I need for one or two days. I came up with mary poppins idea. I found this fabric I thought it`s perfect. I made a bag … and it was ugly. :) So I ripped it appart and made a new one. This is a result.

I made a pattern so you can try your own travelers bag. :)

Material Notes

some stronger cotton




Garment Type


me … and an old bag I remember from my childhood.

    I just wonder if there is any seam allowance inkluded in the pattern?

    Kind regards,

    To get the pattern you simply have to click on the ‘Get It’ button (Right side of screen), then in your purchase history you click get pattern. It may take a while to download but Im sure it willl work!

    Hey there – I couldn’t download the pattern either so I sent an SOS to the Burda people. So hopefully it will be resolved shortly . . . I need this bag!

    Hi Merita, the idea of this bag is very very great!!! It is so nice, that I decided to make it. But I have got a big problem with downloading the pattern… I tried it many times but I was not succsesful. Is there something wrong with my computer or with the pattern? :o) Many thanks…

    Wonderful! Most of bought traveler bags look ugly, because of the pattern, the fabric… But yours looks very stylish and pretty, it´s a very feminie and useful accessory! An how-to would be great ;)

    Živjo, Merita! Zadnje čase sem sicer bolj redkobesedna, ampak tole tvojo torbo bom pa komentirala: všeč mi je barvno pa še zelo praktična je. Bom vesela, če ti bo uspelo objavit how-to in se jo morda še celo sama lotim :) Lep pozdrav!
