Duffel Bag

I dream of traveling. Someday that's all I want to do... don't we all. Anyway I had a chance to go visit the bestie in Texas a few months ago and didn't want to take a huge suitcase so I made a duffel bag. This duffel is quite large though so I brought way more than I should have.

Textile Used: I used quilting cottons and jute webbing from Joann and batting that I had on hand. If you need to fine the jute look in the upholstery section.

The Good: It was super cute and easy enough overall.

The Bad: Bigger than I had in mind.

Changes Made: I quilted in a chevron patter, which took longer. I also added a strap in the back so I could loop it over the handles of a suitcase if I travel with both.
