Departure Satchel

bag sewing pattern

I had a customer request for a very specific travel bag. She paid $395 for her current bag, but she wanted to see my version. I don't copy other peoples designs, so I set out only with her needs in mind for carrying her notebook computer, having a trolley sleeve to carry the tote through the airport, and approximating the total capacity of her current bag.
The result is the departure satchel.

I tested it myself and can honestly say this is a bag you will love for travel. I went away for a week and used one of my full sized duffles and this bag too. During the trip, we did a 2 day one night excursion for which I only brought this bag and it was perfect!

You can pack your essentials for 2 days and a night, use it as your carry-on and be okay if your luggage gets lost.

It will also work fantastically as a diaper bag. Great capacity and pockets.

15" wide
12" high
6-8" deep

For those of you who carry huge purses, here is your new favorite.
