Tripper Travel Tote
Tripper is a functional backpack that can also be used as a diaper bag! This pattern has been cleverly designed to avoid using any bias binding. The name of this pattern was inspired by the American sitcom, Three’s Company.
This bag features two exterior zipper pockets, wide opening top, elastic side pockets, adjustable padded straps, carry handle, three interior elastic pockets, and is fully lined. The finished size is 12″ wide, 14″ high, and 10″ deep.
I’m confident that anyone can make this bag if they want to! It’s not a quick sew; however, it’s a very functional bag and well worth the time! There are quite a few pieces to cut, which can make this bag seem intimidating, but if you take it one step at a time, the bag will come together before you know it! When you’re done, you’ll feel very satisfied and accomplished!
The only hardware required is a set of Ladder Lock Buckles for the adjustable padded straps. Ladder Lock Buckles are available in five colors: nickel, light gold, antique, gunmetal, and rose gold
Included are step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand. Also included are many sewing techniques and tips to help you achieve a quality, finished project. This pattern is designed to help you learn and expand your sewing skills!
