I made the straps two-toned. So fun! (They are 28" long.)

Bonus: Geta's pattern is so unique... This bag can have many "looks!" Geta provides superb instructions, diagrams and photos that also show how to create a Bon Voyage bag with a hexagon front! These bags were made for Geta's sisters, who all traveled to Paris together . Aren't they gorgeous with hexagons and the exquisite quilting?!!

So, how much can a Bon Voyage bag hold?
|This is a big bag! Along side a 24 inch ruler|
|There's an exterior zippered pocket on the back side!|
|There are four big slip pockets inside|
|I began by placing a curling iron in the bottom...|
|On top of the curling iron, I put a large beach towel...|
|How will the Bon Voyage Bag handle- 4 pairs of gym socks, 4 polo shirts, a button down shirt, and a pair of shorts?|
|No sweat? It's all in there!!|
|There's still space in the exterior zipper pocket yet!|
|My mother would've stuffed A LOT more in this still!|
There's time for you to make The Bon Voyage bag, and have a totally stylish and practical gift for holiday giving.
Stop by soon to see another pattern that Geta designed for her sisters and their trip! You will love it!
