The Reisende Bag Pattern by Sew Sweetness has a classical bag look and a handy (but optional!) false bottom that holds it's shape really well. There are two zippered pockets in the lining and this pattern comes with 3 differently sized bags ranging from a classical purse size to a bag that is great for carry-on luggage! Sizes are as follows:
medium 17” long x 11” tall x 5” deep (43cm long x 28cm tall x 12.7cm deep)
large 19” long x 12” tall x 5” deep (48.25cm long x 30.5cm tall x 12.7cm deep)
This bag also has a top-zip closure to keep your items secure.
