It’s Easy Enough for Beginning Bag Makers!
Are you heading out for the weekend? This large duffle bag is so attractive and holds a lot, making it perfect for travel and more.
If you’re in a hurry, make it up with one fabric you love on the outside. Or create the appealing patchwork version from 3.5” scraps of fabric or fat quarters.
There are two outside pockets and one zipper (a 30″ double-slide handbag zipper). Plus it’s easy enough for beginning bag makers.
By Annie’s Soft and Stable provides nice structure for the bag. Batting works too for a slightly floppier version. Both are great options and allow the bag to fold up when not in use. The handles are made from 1 1/2″ polypro strapping.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
