    "This may seem like an odd suggestion, but have you tried diaper bags? There's been a movement recently to make them look less like diaper bags and more like messenger bags, totes, or large purses."

    "Diaper bags are almost there except they lack the key handle sleeve. Everything not luggage specific lacks the key handle sleeve. "

    "Except for the leather look, I think this one might have everything you need.

    "is the handle sleeve the thing that would hook onto your luggage?"

    "Our JuJuBe diaper bag could be extremely easily modified to change the diaper pad sleeve into the back sleeve for a rolling bag handle to go through. It'd just take one cut and some bias tape over the raw edge. One note, though: the front flaps are magnetic, which is super except when you're wearing it and you brush against anything ferrous.

    "I'm on an Epic Hunt for flattering ankle-high boots. I need them to be a color that will match most of my wardrobe, regardless of season, and with a low heel, but not completely flat. I wish you the best of luck with your Epic Hunt! And Happy New Year!"

    "I went on an epic hunt for a pair of long casual boots. I'm flat footed so they either had to have enough support or take my orthotics. I'm short, so too long and they're get in the way of my knee. I wanted a casual look in particular and I had big calves, which have only got bigger since I've taken up tap dancing. After finding that last fact out, after a three year search I gave up and git a pair of ankle boots that look a lot more formal than I was after - but at least I can do the zips up."

    "I also engaged in an epic hunt for a leather bomber jacket with a Steampunk feel and ultimately found the perfect one. It fit beautifully and felt lovely but after starting my dancing, my rack grew 2" (they promised the opposite would happen) and I can't do the zip up anymore. :("

    "Oh, Salsta, that's EXACTLY what happened to me! 2" might not seem like much, but when you are already huge, suddenly the fact that few things fit turns into nothing fitting at all!"

    "I have a Petunia Picklebottom (www.petunia.com) diaper bag, which I got at Nordstrom Rack about 2 years ago, that came with clip-on straps that can be used to secure it to a stroller--possibly adaptable to luggage. Actually, come to think of it, the hobo strap (about 6" long, as opposed to the cross-body strap--it comes with both, interchangable) would probably just loop over a roller luggage handle."

    "My friend Andrea just started her company and she does bags and jewelry, I think the Sheiga bag is quite close to what you are looking for http://www.cobacomplements.com/#!tienda-sheiga/ckkb and she does custom work so you can ask for pockets and zipper and materials.
    She works with leftover material from local big companies, so she has access to quality material at a reasonable cost (and less landfill for everyone).
    In the "Almacén" section you can see some of the textiles available. She also uses leather.
    The downside is she's in Spain so I'm afraid the shipping would cost almost as much as the bag :("

    "Miss. Carriger, may I recommend this to you? I have many of their bags and they are usually washable (after taking out the reinforced bottoms, wear like iron, and while this is the black you requested, you can usually get it in other fun prints. Not cheap but will not fall apart after two or three uses. http://www.verabradley.com/product/Color/Classic-Black/Grand-Cargo-Bag/1002228/defaultColorVariantId/184337/pc/639/c/0/sc/677/p/1002228.uts
