The Roadie is a mini version of the Road Tripster Tote and is such a great size. It will quickly become your favorite go-to for an every day bag. The Roadie has many of your favorite features from it's larger sibling (like all of those pockets!), but includes some extra goodies like a recessed zipper option and a bottle sleeve.  

This pattern is suitable for a domestic machine and is beginner-friendly. This PDF pattern download comes with written instructions for each step along with coordinating photos. Full-size pattern template pieces are also included, however it's not necessary to print them as all measurements are included in the cutting chart. You can use cotton, canvas, cork, or vinyl.

Mini Tote

Great pattern - good pictures showing how to put together. Made out of vinyl and getting through some of the seams was difficult. I'll need to rethink this next time. Thanks!

Fun and cute sew

Easy to follow and fun sew. I will be making many more.

Cute bag!!!

Not only is this bag cute, the final sew turned out amazing!! The instructions are well written and easy to follow...I will be purchasing more patterns!

Awesome bag pattern

I’ve made 2 and absolutely love the design.

I love this pattern, but…

I may have chosen the wrong fabric. My water-proof canvas might be too dense. My machine, which has sewn many bags, would not make stitches through the side seams. I will try again with quilters cotton.
