In this book there are six fun projects that will help you travel in style. The Weekender is just the right size for an overnight stay. Organise your make-up or toiletries in the Cosmetic Bag. If you take along the Laundery Bag for your dirty clothes, you will make unpacking a snap.

When you are not travelling then the Hanging Garment Bag will keep the dust of your favourite clothes.
