In the midst of summer, and all it’s fun, I whipped up a Cargo Duffel among other things I have yet to blog about.
I absolutely love it! There will definitely be more of these.
I did make a few changes, which are:
– I used 2 layers of cotton batting in all the pieces of the main part of the bag.
– Linen was my interior fabric, no canvas.
– I added 10 inches to the strap length, I prefer a longer strap.
I also made a matching triple zip (which I made 2 inches longer than the tutorial) for the inside. I used my snap press to attach it to the inside of the bag, that way it can be removed. My secret sister I made it for requested lots of pockets, so I needed to improvise 🙂
I also used a baby corduroy for the bottom of the bag, I really like how this turned out. I really feel like it added more to the bottom, and hopefully it won’t wear out as fast as quilting cotton.
I’m telling you, this one was a little hard to give away. But, she absolutely LOVED it, so that made it much easier!
