Imagine this: You and your family pack your handmade Sallie Tomato bags and arrive at the train station, filled with excitement for the adventure ahead. As you step onto the platform, you're greeted by the sound of the train's whistle, creating a sense of anticipation. The train starts to glide along the tracks, and you and your family settle in, cuddling close together and gazing out of the large windows. The train passes through beautiful countryside, with rolling hills and vibrant green landscapes stretching out before you. The rhythmic chugging of the train and the gentle swaying create a soothing backdrop, adding to the enchanting atmosphere.
For the best adventure possible, we've rounded up 4 must-have bag patterns to make and take with you on your train traveling experience! Travel in style with these essential patterns!
Sallie Tomato has all your train travel bag must haves with our new collaborations with Missouri Star Quilt Company! Travel in style with these new patterns!

Next up we have the chic, customizable Traveler Bag! This one is absolutely perfect for people who are always on the go! The Traveler bag features a passport holder, ID pocket, exterior slip pocket, an interior zipper pocket, and card pockets. It is easy to style & big enough to hold your important travel must haves, but small enough to fit in between you and the train seat without being uncomfortable!
Traveling takes a toll on your skin and can make you feel a little tired at times. You’re going to need a place to store your everyday cosmetics and skin care when you are feeling a little bland on the way to your destination. What pattern is more perfect for that than our well-loved Bette! The Bette has numerous sections to organize anything you need to refresh on a long ride on the tracks! This is a cosmetic carryall that goes everywhere with you. This structured, zippered case not only has compartments for toiletries, cosmetics, but you can also keep essential oils if you feel easily anxious during travel or art supplies if you are traveling with children who need something to stay occupied!
We are needing just one more travel essential before we take this trip! A duffle! The Hamilton Travel Duffle Bag is the roomiest Weekender bag that you must have in your collection!

As the evening approaches, the train slows down, signaling your arrival at a charming town. You and your family disembark and explore the quaint streets hand in hand, discovering hidden cafes, boutiques, and cozy spots to enjoy a cup of coffee or a sweet treat. The town's charm, combined with the memories you've created on the train, adds an extra layer of magic to your date. When the time comes to return, you board the train once again, feeling content and grateful for the unique experience you've shared. The train departs, carrying you all back home, and you find comfort in the knowledge that this romantic train travel day will be a cherished memory for years to come.
