Buy the Huxley Bag sewing pattern from Goheen Designs. Huxley is a crossbody bag, a backpack, and a bike bag all in one! Combine that with the two different sizes, and the two views (one with a lid flap and one without) and you have 12 possible bags – all the options you need for going from bike to hike to car!

The larger size fits a 13″ laptop, while the smaller size is perfect for carrying a tablet. Just enough room for what you need, without so much room that you are tempted to bring the whole kitchen sink. Wear it on your back to keep your hands free. Throw it over your shoulder as a crossbody for quick access to your essentials. Or snap it onto your bike for easy sweat-free riding. The Huxley is as adaptable as you are – the perfect bag for all your adventures!
