Combine your love of sewing with your active lifestyle as you make this combination backpack/duffle.
Inspired by multiple requests for a bag to carry pickleball and tennis rackets, we've designed this versatile travel bag.
Courtside is a spacious hybrid backpack/duffle bag that can fit under the seat on an airplane.
It includes features for carrying rackets, slipping over luggage, and opens wide for easy access.
It's also hybrid in its construction: the body of the bag is quilted but the pockets are unquilted for a more modern aesthetic.
You’ll love its large easily-accessible interior. Multiple slip and zippered pockets plus expanding dividers organize everything from personal needs to water bottles.
Carry with quick-grab handles or use the adjustable padded straps for hands-free carrying as a backpack. A trolley sleeve on back makes travel extra easy!
NOTE: This project has many pieces and multiple layers so is recommended for intermediate to advanced sewists using a sewing machine that can handle bulk.
Finished size: 15"H x 11"W x 4¾"D at top, 15"H x 14½"W x7¼"D at bottom
