As the name implies, the Takeoff Tote is designed to be your personal item and sit on top of your carry-on suitcase handle. The straight sides make it perfect for a narrow airplane aisle and fitting under your seat. It’s a simple design on purpose, so it won’t take you more time to sew than it will take to travel to your destination. :) Testers have declared their Takeoff Totes as their new travel, work, teacher, knitting, and even diaper bags. When not flying, I use mine as a gym bag and as that extra tote I throw in my backseat with all the things I don’t want to carry in my purse but might need while I’m out. I hope you find it as versatile as I do!
