Awhile ago I made a duffel bag for my little guy.
I finally got around to taking pics of it
(sorry it took so long Mom).
It's made from vintage denim that I got
from my Mom's fabric collection.
The only thing I had to buy to make this
was the 1" braid trim that was
used for the handles.
The pattern I used was Sunrise Designs-T108
The pattern was also vintage.
Check it out with the link above....it's funny.
It's got a zipper to close it which is nice
because kids are always shoving
tons of random items in their bag.
As you can see, it's nice and roomy.
There is also a pocket on both sides.
I think the pocket is E's favorite part of the bag.
It was easy to sew and I would say it's intended
for a beginner to medium skill level.
The denim I used has some stretch to it and
because of that my circular ends didn't match
up exactly. I had to take a pinch on each end
and sew it together so it's a bit puckered
on each end at the top by the zipper.
It's still totally functional, just not as
polished looking as I prefer.
It's the perfect size for my son and he loves it.
I think he's decided that it will be his
new "school bag" this year.
