Black Linen Voyager Bag

Last fall I bought a new bag pattern from Ghee’s, the Voyager Bag (#761).  I made the medium using some black linen in my stash.  As it was a light-weight linen, I underlined it to make it more durable.  I, also, fully lined the bag sections so there are no raw seams anywhere.

The finished bag, folded over, measures 8 in X 9 in.  There are a total of 8 compartments/pockets.  I had a beautiful piece of 3 in wide trim that I wrapped around 1.5 in cotton strapping to make the bag’s strap. 

Here is the back.  Not the pocket which could hold tickets when traveling.

Here is the inside.

Here you can see the antique buttons I used for the closure.  I found these years ago at an estate sale.
