I am a skeptical bag maker. I don’t really care for the look of a lot of fabric bags, to be honest. The ones I do like, such as big travel bags, often end up weighing 10 pounds before you even put anything in them! All that interfacing and stuff that make it have structure can be heavy! So I wasn’t sure about this one but when I got the metal frame and it weighed almost nothing, I decided to give it a go.
I lined it with this medium weight cotton.
Making it was fairly easy and it is extremely light, even with the moleskin accents.
I took it on a flight to NY with me and it was perfect for my carry on.
We will be having a class on this awesome bag at Sew Modern!
