Sewing: Making Luggage (Duffel Bag)

We've been getting ready for our family trip- so, I spent a few hours and sewed a simple duffel bag.  I LOVE this fabric and have had it for a long time.  I believe it is a duck cloth print (they currently have some super cute patterned duck cloth at Hobby Lobby).  Just remember to wash your duck cloth before sewing- I had some that shrank like crazy when I washed it (full length curtain became a valance- almost).

There are patterns for this "luggage" bag available at most fabric stores (Simplicity 2274, free pattern online, etc.).  I just made up my own pattern.  I serged the interior seams- I am hoping that reenforcement of the seams will give the bag some extra strength.... here is to many happy journeys!

Pin It!

Hi Jana,

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get the word out about my new site:

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

I am contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that I could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

I would also appreciate if you could spread the word about Mommy Giggles to other moms too!

Hope you will get a “giggle” out of the site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews
