Make Your Own Striking Quilted Duffel Bag.
Make a stunning week-ender bag that you can easily take as your carry on luggage. Practical but unique and the most stylish bag at the airport! Everyone could use a good duffel bag, but this is a gorgeous duffel. The bag is light yet roomy enough for two for a weekend away. It’s a fabulous family beach bag/ carry all with room for beach towels and bathing suits for five plus a queen size beach blanket! There’s even room for shoes. The zippered outside pocket will hold sunscreen. The outside pouch pocket can hold cell phones or sunglasses.
The duffel comes in handy when you need a sturdy, shaped bag that can carry big bulky items. Broad handles for comfortable carry, look chunky and fashionable too. There’s a zippered pocket at the side with an expansion possibility. The bags in the feature image were made using Amy Butlers Nigella fabric which is a home decor weight but soft enough for quilting and fashion. Quilting the bags make them plush and firm.
When choosing your fabric for the bag start with your favorite as the feature fabric for the bag. Use contrasting fabric for the handles. The handles are partially covered with fabric to make them comfortable to hold, but edges are left showing because it looks great. Big bold florals and paisley prints are striking for these bags. Make up sets as bridesmaids gifts as well as the bride for destination wedding! This pattern includes a royalty-free cottage licensing agreement. That means that you can make these bags for resale! The bags are 20″ wide by 12″ deep and 12″ tall.
The bags are available for purchase as a custom order by Studio Cherie, and you can order up to ten at a time!
