Pattern Description:

The Xanadu Traveler is the perfect bag for when you are ready to hit the road. Make your weekend getaway complete with a way to carry a full weekend of clothing and footwear with room to spare. Stocked with a bottom zipper compartment, a spacious interior, an optional trolley sleeve to piggy back on top of rolling luggage, elastic straps on the exterior to carry a yoga mat, a towel or even a jacket, and lots of pockets to keep you organized. The small size makes the ideal gym bag too! Top corners unhook for easy packing. Perfect carry handles along with a long strap to carry over your shoulder or even crossbody.

Best of all, easy to complete bottom zipper compartment with no drop-in linings or curved zippers to install.

The Xanadu Traveler comes in two sizes and two options to allow you to create the perfect travel bag to fit your needs.
