Travel Duffle with Trolley Sleeve

18 inches wide by 11 inches tall and 9 inches deep
"Travel Duffle with Trolley Sleeve" Pattern by Studio Cherie

This is the fourth bag I've made from a Studio Cherie Pattern.  The first three were made from Cherie's original Travel Duffle Pattern, which is a bit larger, and lacks the trolley sleeve.  Since the method for making this bag is very similar to the original, I was able to make this bag fairly easily.  I did add an interior muslin lining, which took some extra time and thinking.

I prefer the size of this bag to the original, but still wish Cherie would have included steps to add a true, "no guts" lining, as an alternate option to using a serger (which I don't have) or bias tape (which I don't like).   I'm sure there is a better way than how I did it.  Regardless, it is still a great pattern and tutorial, and I'll continue to purchase patterns from Studio Cherie.  The Departure Satchel might be next.
