Stitch a large, sturdy tote that fits a laptop and work essentials, enough necessities for a weekend getaway or diapers and baby clothes. The faux piping featured on the tote only looks complicated.

Travel Companion Bag
Where can I purchase this pattern and Instructions please?? Thanks, Val
Travel Companion
Where are the instructions? I downloaded the pattern, but there are no instructions. Thanks,
Question about Interfacing
The pattern states double sided fusible interfacing but there are no instructions to fuse beyond one side. Please let us know if this was an error or clarify the instructions. Thanks
Question about pattern pieces
I printed the pattern and taped it together, matching the cutting lines exactly. The pieces don't match up. The width of the bottom is 1/2" smaller than bottom of body and side piece is 1/4" shorter than side of body. Is that right? Want to make sure before cutting my fabric.
RE: fabric
It's a licensed fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store. We don't know if it's still available, but check with your local store.
Love this tote and really love the fabric and wondered if anyone knew what the brand is, or where it can be purchased or anything? thanks!!
