It's been a while, hasn't it?! But I have finally been back at the sewing machine and this is the result. The pattern is the Avignon Traveller from Nicole Mallalieu's "The Better Bag Maker". It is a bag of many pockets - behind the dandelion print on each side of the bag are large, zipped pockets which are good for magazines or travel documents, then inside there is another zipped pocket and a large compartment pocket (a bit hard to photograph!):
There is plenty of space for everything you need on a flight. I've just got to Scotchguard this and then I'll be ready to try it out!
