I adventured myself sewing the Weekender Travel Bag, by Amy Butler:



I made a blister in my finger handstitching the lining but it was worth every damn stitch (the lining is the same fabric as piping)

This one is not that stiff as most I've seen online because I didn't use Peltex (no such thing around here). . Fabrics came from IKEA, again. I could have matched the pattern  but I have a life beyond my sewing machine and no extra fabric for that Smiley

I really like my new bag and I'm going to make some as xmas gifts (only to persons who can appreciate all the work such thing envolves  Undecided)
