Make Your Getaway Duffle Bag Sewing Pattern
I have a piece of stiff red luggage that has wheels that i take on the airplane for trips. I pack it up when i am going to check my bag and I know it will get the job done. But Ugh! It is ugly and not fun. Now that so many of us just do carry on and drive where we want to go, that ugly old luggage can be put high up in the attic.
This cute piece of luggage is so versatile and easy, you will be making matching duffles for everyone is your family! (maybe something in solid for your husband??). The directions are full of pictures and simple explanations. It is a great size for a 5 -7 day trip the beach or to visit family. The size can also be easily be adjusted to fit your needs. Optional interior pocket instructions are included.
I have also included pattern pieces for child's size duffle. This size can also be used for you for a weekend and as compliment to your larger duffle. You can also adjust this bag yourself to create all different sizes! The bags are great sizes, the larger is 19 1/2" wide x 14 1/2" tall x 7 1/2" deep and the smaller is 18" wide x 12 1/2" tall x 5" deep
The bag can be made with bright stylish cottons, canvas, upholstery fabric, or even a wool. You can choose to include the lining or not. Pockets are very easy to add if you choose. The base is a quilted piece for extra strength. The closing is a zipper which you can hand sew or use your machine.
You may sell bags made from this pattern on a small handmade scale. I would greatly appreciate credit for the pattern.
