    Project bag with trolley sleeve

    I just got a wheel-around tote for my sewing machine. I'd like to make a project bag with a trolley sleeve. Does anyone have any recommendations for patterns or tutorials? I've Googled it, but haven't seen anything yet that really grabs me, so thought I'd pick the marvelous brains here. You always come up with such good ideas!

    Thanks.

    I just got back from a retreat. Before I left, I made a bunch of stuff to hold my stuff, including a bag that would work for you. Here's a link to my post with a link to the "Luggage Rider Carry-on bag". Easy pattern, worked well for supplies.

    You can also add a sleeve to pretty much any bag pattern you like. Since there will be some stress on the sleeve, use an iron on interfacing to strengthen, then add a lining. Make sure that the space between the stitching is at least the width of your trolley handle plus 2 to 4 inches for ease. So the bag doesn't flop forward, I would make it about 3 inches shorter than your bag, centering it so there's about 1.5" at the top & bottom.
    It's easiest if the handles extend to the bottom of the bag, just sew the sleeve between them, adjusting the space between the handles to accommodate the sleeve. If the handles are just at the top, cut your sleeve to size (remember to add seam allowance!), iron on the interfacing. Cut a lining the same size. Sew the 2 pieces, right sides together, around all the sides, leaving an opening to turn. Turn right side out and top stitch around the edge, then add to the back panel of your bag. Make sure you secure the top & bottom of your stitching lines by reversing a couple times.
