Today, the first pattern of 5 was sent to Road Trip Pattern Club subscribers. But it is not too late to join! Just click here to purchase your membership and receive this pattern today plus 4 more in the next couple of months. If you're not familiar with the Road Trip Pattern Club scroll to the end of this post to learn more.
The first pattern in the Road Trip Pattern Club is this Road Tripper Duffle, designed by Betz White. I adore this bag and absolutely cannot wait to make it. Just look at the details:
This Road Tripper Duffle will be perfect for all your upcoming travels whether you are taking your kids to the beach, enjoying a mountain retreat with the family or just spending the weekend in the big city with friends. It's got pockets galore (who doesn't love pockets?) and two sets of handles/straps so you can hand carry it or throw it over your shoulder.
So, what's the next pattern, you ask? I am absolutely dying to share this with you, but I can't show you the full thing just yet. All I can say is that it will be a women's garment that will fit ALL women, no matter your size or body shape... cool, eh? My pattern will come to you on June 16th. Here is a tiny sneak peek to whet your appetite. :)

There are 5 travel inspired patterns that include bags, accessories and women’s clothing, ranging in skill from confident beginner to intermediate. The designs will be a mystery until they are revealed at each road trip “destination” every 3 weeks.
The first pattern is being released on Tuesday May 27 (TODAY!), followed by 4 more patterns revealed every three weeks through August. The one-time membership fee for the club is $35 for all 5 patterns.
