New Pattern! The Traverse Bag - NoodleheadIf you’ve checked out Instagram in the past week or so you might have noticed I taught at Sewtopia this past weekend in Denver, Colorado. I had a super lovely time and met the most amazing women. So for the event I designed a new pattern, the Traverse Bag! And awesomely enough, today I’ve got this newest pattern available for purchase in my shop!

Traverse Regular (left) and Mini (right)

It was pretty magical to watch 80 women sew this bag. To see it come together in so many fabric combinations is truly something I’ll never tire of.

So for this bag I was definitely consumed with making something on the small side, a bag for traveling and for summer and one that’ll hold all your essentials securely. I ended up making two sizes because the ‘Mini’ size is just too cute not to include. Here’s a few of the features of this bag:

  • two sizes to sew! (regular and mini)
  • zippered main compartment
  • back zippered pocket
  • front pocket for the things you reach for most (I’m looking at you phone and keys!)
  • crossbody style with adjustable strap
  • interior slip pocket

On my trip to Denver I used the Regular size and it was seriously the best ever. I felt super comfortable walking through the airport and jumping in and out of Ubers. It carried everything I needed without feeling weighed down and there was never a point where I was stuck fishing through the bottom of my bag to find what I needed. I call that a win for sure.New Pattern! The Traverse Bag - Noodlehead

I’m excited to make more and show off the samples I’ve made so far. As for summer, which is just around the corner, I’m ready to make the Mini and take it with on all our summer adventures.New Pattern! The Traverse Bag - Noodlehead

Lastly, I have some hardware kits leftover from Sewtopia, so they’re listed in the shop in limited quantities. They include both zippers, strap hardware, cording for making piping and leather pulls. The only thing that isn’t part of the kit is the snap. The reason being is that there are many different snap types and manufacturers, so I’ll link to those here. You’ll need to have the corresponding setting tool for whatever snap you use, so don’t forget that! I have a press, but there are also hand setting tools for under $10 as well.

For this pattern, I recommend using a size 24 (sometimes called Line 24) snap:

Tandy Leather (snaps, hand setting tool: setter, anvil, or set w/tool)
Gold Star Tool (snaps, hand setting tool (choose GS-HS#803L-RNG-15mm, press)
Buckleguy.com (snaps, hand setting tool, press)
Snapsource (snaps, hand setting tool: you’ll want the setting tool plus the size 24 adapter)
Dritz (snaps, hand setting tool)

Many of these items or something similar may be available at your local quilt shop or craft store, so please check there as well!New Pattern! The Traverse Bag - Noodlehead
