This Wonderful Pattern is Easier Than it Looks!
Why settle for a ho-hum travel bag when you can have a bag made from beautiful fabric? You don’t need to settle when you can make your own pretty duffel from this pattern. Besides being able to customize the fabric, the capacity and sturdy construction make this bag a stand-out.
Select one fabric for the body of the bag and another for the handles. It will be beautiful in whatever color combination you choose.
This generously sized bag is a cinch to sew up, even for beginners.
Its big size is a plus. As the designer says:
I use my duffle frequently for weekends away and find it perfect for 2 who travel light or 1 who likes a lot of choices (i.e. when I bring 3 pairs of shoes.).
The bag is cleverly designed to manage the weight without sagging when packed full.
The finished duffel, from StudioCherie, is 20″ long by 12″ high and 12″ deep.

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!
