Learn how to make a huge bag that folds itself into a small pocket. This bag is great for travel! Stow it in your luggage, shop on your trip, fill it up and use it to haul those treasures home. It will fit in the overhead storage on an airplane. It’s lined, has a zippered pocket inside and a zippered pouch on the outside. It also has a zipper to close the top. Sewing experience is necessary.
