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!
