0 Flares Facebook 0 Twitter 0 0 Flares ×

Rock, is a carry-on and weekender unisex bag pattern, with a trolley sleeve option to slide over a rolling luggage handle.

The Rock pattern includes 2 sizes. Small: free Ryanair carry-on size. Medium: large weekender size.

The Rock pattern is supplied with an additional projector friendly PDF file.

Rock, carry-on or weekender, unisex

Rock is a carry-on or weekender unisex bag. Sew one for each member of the family!

Its opening extends to the sides in a distinctive pretty triangle design.

With its handles you can carry it by hand or over the shoulder, and a removable shoulder strap option is included.

Rock has 4 to 5 pockets : 2 zippered pockets inside + 1 front pocket with flap + 1 zippered pocket at the back and, also at the back, a choice of 1 patch pocket or a trolley sleeve.

Trolley sleeve option

The Rock pattern also includes a trolley sleeve option to slide over a rolling luggage handle.

Indeed, in addition to the zippered pocket at the back of the bag, you can choose to add either 1 patch pocket or a trolley sleeve.

2 Sizes : free Ryanair carry-on or large weekender bag

  • Small – Free Ryanair carry-on* : width 38 cm (15″) x height 25 cm (9 7/8″) x depth 18 cm (7 1/8″). *on the pattern release date (June 2023), Rock Small is slightly smaller than the dimensions allowed by Ryanair for a free personal carry-on (40 x 25 x 20 cm). This slightly smaller size is to help the bag stay within the allowed size once it’s full.
  • Medium – Large weekender bag : width 45 cm (17 3/4″) x height 30 cm (11 7/8″) x depth 20 cm (7 7/8″).
Small and Medium sizes

Sewing level

The majority of the Rock pattern’s 15 testers ranked it as intermediate and it’s therefore the level that I assigned it.

I developed an assembly technique for the opening that extends into a triangle on the sides, which is easier than it looks on the finished bag 😉 With a clean finish on the inside and on the outside of course.

  1. I just checked these dimensions against Australia domestic carry-on luggage.
    Rock’s medium 45x30x20 easily fits within 56x36x23 carry-on dimension limit here.

    1. That’s great news, thank you Karey !
