The Swing Bag – A Scrap Dance Pattern

230 Comments

Wouldn’t you love to have a great travel bag for the holidays, or any travel weekend?  This weekender bag is compact yet packs a punch. You won’t believe how much you can fit into it, and still have organization!  It will hold enough clothes and toiletries for a weekend getaway, just Swing it over your shoulder and dance off to the beach or the cabin in the mountains.  The construction isn’t hard, just follow the steps one by one. The great majority is constructed flat, so it is easy to handle. Use up scraps by making a larger piece of fabric and cutting your focus piece from it. Use charm squares, jelly roll strips, layer cake squares, crumbs or orphan blocks, your only limit is your imagination!

After the initial bag was done, I showed it to some friends who suggested a few improvements.  So, the pattern has several options for extras in pockets and details.  Purchasing the pdf file on Craftsy for the very low introductory price of just $2 will give you more photos and more detailed instructions.  Click on Swing Bag for the pattern link.   I really appreciate any purchases as that is the way I pay for the costs of the blog, so I can bring more great free patterns, giveaways and projects to readers.  I also invite new readers to follow my blog for a wide variety of subjects, crafting and cooking, sewing and quilting, gardening and photography, mountain living and more.

And have fun with the  Christmas In July blog hop which will have new posts every day for 12 days.

Here are the participant blogs, have fun!!  And read down below for the giveaway!

  1. Thanks for the chance to win some Christmas fabric – it will be interesting to see what the other bloggers post about 🙂

  2. Thanks for Christmas in July. I have followed you all year and plan on in future. this time last year is when I found you. Was looking forward to this year.

  3. First, let me say that I am not a fan of bag-making, but your tutorial is so clear, I think I’d have to really work to be unsuccessful at this one. I just bought the pattern and have yet to check it out, but I think I’m really going to like this! Thank you!!

  4. I love the travel bag! I will share with my friends if that’s ok! Your directions are fab! I AM already working on Christmas gifts. I am making a mitten quilt for my sister. An idea I’ve been working on in my head. I want to embroider her name and her husbands and all thd kids and grandkids in them. Thanks for the chance to win! Rebecca

  5. Thanks for the bag pattern. Can’t wait to sew it.

  6. Great bag pattern, and I love the sewing-themed fabrics you used for yours. Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!

  7. Your instructions and pictures are very well done. Thank you for this opportunity to gain project ideas for Christmas and the chance to win great fabrics!

  8. fantastic tutorial..thank you!

  9. Great tutorial. Love the bag.

  10. Your pictures show how easy this bag is to make. They are laid out so well. Thanks for Christmas in July.

  11. I made a bag like this when I was in high school-many, many years ago-thanks for bringing back memories!
    Have a great weekend!

  12. Great tutorial, I want to give this a try.

  13. Ooh! I love Christmas!

    Thank you for the tutorial. xo

  14. Thanks Carole, for great design pattern and tutorial. What a great gift this is!

  15. *Thank you* for all you do, Carole, to teach, encourage, and inspire!
    I just downloaded your pattern at Craftsy!… Thank you for the extra pictures in it, and the extra details! (That makes your great directions very clear to even beginning sewers.)
    Pat T.

  16. Nice project. And thanks for the fun.. Love your blog.. I live in Western NC too.. been here for 28 yrs.. So we do call it home..

  17. Nice looking bag. I will have to give it a try. I enjoy reading your blog and have been following for several years via email.

  18. It would be fun to make “sleep-over” bags for kids with novelty prints. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  19. Great bag and tutorial. It will be a nice gift.

  20. These would make great gifts. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  21. Love this bag-I really have trials & tribulations in making a bag, but this one looks like a can-do for me! Thank you, Susan

  22. What a great bag, as usual Carole! Christmas in July starts next Friday for me at the Quilt Show, when the shopping frenzy of visitors to the show begins! One of my bees I belong to is doing a Christmas in July project in 2 weeks. I am cutting 5″ squares of holiday fabric for a swap, but I don’t have any idea what our project is going to be yet. Just gathered my fabrics for Pat Sloan’s Grandma’s Kitchen project. Decided on 1930’s reproduction. Felt that it was appropriate for my generation and memories!

  23. Your bag would be a good one for toting toys too. I’m currently doing birthday sewing, and then catching up on some sew-along blocks. With the high temperatures, quilting in the basement is the perfect weekend activity.

  24. PS – I just downloaded the pattern , and I LOVE all the extra photo’s and details you included!!! Worth much more than the minimal $2 investment! Going to “share a link” today with my Queen Bee friends on facebook and send them to the blog & to the Craftsy store.

  25. Terrific bag!!!!

  26. Nice bag. We are always looking for dance bags and soccer bags and overnight bags, this is a great Christmas idea, different for each grandchild. Thanks

  27. Thank you for the very complete tutorial. I don’t need another thing on my to do list but…..I do follow your blog and enjoy your very different seasons from here in Wisconsin.

  28. Hi Carole,
    Yes. Yes, I would love to make a new bag for traveling. Either for later this year or for an upcoming cruise – and a CUTE bag at that. Thank you for sharing all the details.

  65. Thanks for sharing the duffel pattern, I will be giving this a try!

  66. What a great bag! Thank you for the tutorial. I know you mentioned it as a getaway bag. . . .but I am thinking that this would be a great way to carry my “Show & Tell” and other items to guild.

    Have a lovely day,

    Sherry V.

  73. Oh, how fun! I absolutely love bags of every size and shape, color and form. I’m the original bag lady, I think. LOL Thanks for the wonderful tutorial and pattern, Carole. Have you also seen the lace zippers for smaller, cosmetic type bags? Oh, I’m having fun with those and making gifts for the holidays and for our guild’s boutique next year. :o)

  79. I really need a new travel bag, so the Swing Bag would be a super one to make (and not drive me batty with so many details). I don’t usually make Christmas projects yet in July, but I am thinking about Halloween with a bundle of fabric that I’ve got. It never hurts to get a leg up on any holiday!

I’m leaving Tuesday for nearly a week away on retreat—I wonder if I can get a bag finished in 3 days? hmmmmmm…….I missed so many of your blog posts—just coming off a 6 week bout of pneumonia and a head-on car collision….I was the hittee—-not the hitter. Good to be back…I’ve got some catching up to do on my reading!

  130. Very nice bag! I made an overnight bag for myself and another for my husband. I wish that the straps were sewn all down the sides like this one, looks good and is so much more supportive.

  131. Looks like a great bag–thanks for sharing!!

  132. Fantastic bag and tutorial. Thanks.

  133. Your tutorial is very clear. The hop is going to be lots of fun.

    Cute bag pattern- ideas for using orphan blocks and project bits are always welcome. Not starting anything new just now as I am wrapping up the final prep for my European adventure. Lots of wip’s and plans for afterward. 😀

  137. Very cool made me want to skip work stay home making one…Love the fabric too…. happyness04431 at yahoo.com

  138. Clever pattern. Looks like a lot of fun to make.

  139. Excellent directions for the bag. Great start to the Christmas Hop

  140. it’s so interesting to see what people are working on. Lovely bag and great photos of the in progress. Thank you.

  141. What a GREAT bag pattern. Thank you for sharing! This is my first time “on the hop” and I’m really looking forward to all the fun!!

  142. Cute bag, and a great tutorial!! Thanks so much!!! The hop is off to a great start!!

  143. What an amazing bag, thank you so much for sharing it! The pattern will work well for a charity our guild does, which is bags full of bathroom supplies for the women’s shelter.

  144. Great bag pattern and nicely done on the tutorial.

  145. Great bag! It is on my list for my grandson’s birthday coming up soon. Thank you for sharing it.

  146. WOW! I wish I had this wonderful tutorial years ago. My first husband wanted me to make a bag for him to carry his medications with him. He had to carry inhalers for asthma and some others. Any manly bag was too large and boxy. So I found a pattern from a major pattern company. He used it and it wasn’t what he wanted. I don’t think I did anything that really pleased him. If I had this tutorial, I could have cut the pattern down with the size of the circles. I think he wanted a barrel bag as I made, but much smaller. This is wonderful because it gives such clarity that I think a person could modify it sizewise easily. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!!!

  147. This looks like a great bag!

  148. Thanks for the bag tutorial. I haven’t ever tried a bag like this before, but it looks to be a great size and convenient to take on little trips. I will have to bookmark it…. we are moving in a few weeks so unfortunately I am taking a little sewing hiatus while we pack and organize. I will be back at it soon, though!

  149. What a great tutorial! Darling bag! Good idea for a Christmas gift.

  150. Love your travel bag. Great directions. Tks

  151. I’m into making bags lately so this falls right into my lap at the right time. Can’t wait to get started. Now to organize my fabric choices….

  152. Wow, look at the comments you received. I love the tutorial. How awesome.

  153. Pingback: Tu-Na Quilts: Christmas in July Has Arrived-Day One | Tu-Na Quilts, Travels, and Eats

  203. Just purchased your Swing Bag pattern and I’m delighted with the detail. So many details I missed on the blog. This will be a delightful gift for my high school aged granddaughter. But I will be making it from heavier fabric and a metal zipper for her. Also plan on making one for my quilting buddy, Carol (without the “e”) and one for me. I never seem to get me one made. Thanks for spending your time designing and offering this pattern. Now to peruse my stash for the perfect fabric.

  204. You make it look so easy. This is certainly a fun hop. thank you.

  205. Wow I agree very nice love your colors too… happyness04431 (at) yahoo.com

  214. Very nice bag! Thanks for the tutorial.
