The Portside Travel Set features everything you need to tote your handmade garments around proudly! The travel pouch is perfect for smaller items such as power cords, passports, and other tiny things you may need on the road. The roomy dopp kit fits all your toiletries and features a front pocket separate from the rest of the bag. All of this packs neatly into the duffle which is perfectly sized for a long weekend (or week if you’re a light packer). Duffle features handles which can be carried or slung over the shoulder as well as a removable adjustable shoulder strap. Both the duffle and the dopp kit are fully lined.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, inserting a zipper, and basic hand sewing.
