Duffle Bag

As you may have guessed, I like to take road trips.
But sometimes I just don't want to haul around a big 'ol suitcase.
What's a girl to do?
Hop on Craftsy is what!
Found this great travel duffle pattern on Craftsy.

I prequited some fabric from my stash
(really trying to use up some stash, I just have too much)

Here's a really out of focus photo of me sewing on the straps.
I of course altered the pattern and switched out the jute straps for
duck cloth. I just can't get past the smell of jute.

On go the ends. Probably the hardest part, and it wasn't hard at all.
Except that I broke three needles doing it.
Darn zippers, seems I hit them every time.

One end on, one to go.

My finished bag.
Its big!
It could easily hold enough for a week long trip.
Vera Bradley, eat my sewing machine dust!

Loaded up and ready to go!


  1. Love it! I want to make one of these or Amy Butlers Weekender Bag. Just haven't gotten up the nerve.


I love to hear from you!
