Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This pattern will walk you through all of the sewing steps. If you have never quilted before, you can start with pre-quilted fabric.

Pattern Description:

Everyone has a duffle, but not everyone has a gorgeous duffle. Now you can sew up your own custom travel bag.

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.)

It is also our family beach bag/carry-all.

You will love the capacity and sturdy construction of this bag.

Beginners and expert seamstresses all love this pattern for the unique travel bags they make with it.

I just posted a video showing the different travel bags to maybe give you a better idea which one to make (copy paste to your browser:)
