Pumpkin Patch Weekender

Pumpkin Patch Weekender If you like travel bags that are girly and offer easy access to your things, this is a wonderful tutorial by the ladies over at Kojo Designs. I like this bag because you can sling it across your body, too. Nothing like free hands to peruse flea market and souvenir stalls.



The Weekender

The Weekender How sexy is this bag? I will probably fit inside this one. Which, of course, makes it a must-sew bag. Don over at Weekend Designer gives us comprehensive instructions on how to make this weekender.



Large Patchwork Bag

Large Patchwork Bag I have just recently discovered the joys of patchwork sewing (15 years after learning to sew *aherm*) and I think this bag will be fun to make. If you happen to have a large collection of fabrics, this is wonderful project for you. I bet this will be lovely in bright summery colors.



Cinched Tote

Cinched Tote This** DIY travel tote** is a shoulder bag style. This one is roomy and will definitely be useful on any trip. Even a quick trip to the supermarket.



Beach-Towel Bag

Beach-Towel Bag Beach towel turned into a tote? All sorts of brilliant. The best part: this is incredibly easy to sew and will require only two materials. The size of your bag will depend on the towel you use so choose wisely.



Beach Bag

Beach Bag Here is another free pattern for making a** beautiful travel bag**. This one will also involve a bit of patchwork and quilting. Check out the link now for a downloadable PDF with the free pattern.



Canvas Beach Bag

Canvas Beach Bag Boy, I am loving this nautical bag. Looks store-bought, doesn't it? According to Leanne: "...this bag is extra big. I can fit 3 towels, tons of sunscreen, and plenty of snacks and toys in it" Sounds like the** perfect travel bag** for someone with kids or who likes to lounge beside the pool with 3 different books.



Mesh Bag

Mesh Bag This** travel bag tutoria**l requires only two materials: fiberglass mesh and grosgrain ribbon. Sewing this bag is very easy, too. Head on over to Martha now for the complete instructions.



Pleated Beach Bag

Pleated Beach Bag I am having a serious case of fabric envy over here. I love that colorful bottom panel! It's wonderfully perfect for a beach bag, no doubt about it. Of course, the construction and style of this travel bag are also fantastic. Like I said, I like travel bags that you can sling across the body and this one can be modified to fit just so.


I will definitely be making one of these** DIY travel bags**. I might give number 9 a go; the size and design are actually quite similar to my current travel bag of choice --- an H&M bag. Hope you like these travel bags to make! Do tell us if you end up following some of these tutorials.
