cargo duffle

Hello friends, happy Thursday to you all!

Did you have a nice Christmas? I sure hope so. We had such a lovely time it's kind of hard to get back to my regular work, clean, cook, ... routine now. At least the kids are still on their winter break so the transition is not that harsh :)

I didn't sew a thing over the last few days and I'm really itching to get back to it tonight. Hopefully I'll make some more blocks for my Tone it Down quilt. Fingers crossed.

Today, though, I wanted to share my version of Noodlehead's Cargo Duffle.


This bag a little smaller than I somehow expected, but that's a good thing. It's a perfect size for an overnight trip, and not that difficult to put together.


I used leather for the pocket flaps (my favorite thing about this duffle) and cotton webbing for the handles which saved me quite a lot of time. If I made this duffel second time, however, I'd wrap the handle webbing in fabric to make it prettier. It will do for now, though :)


I used one of my all time favorite polka dotty fabrics to line the bag. I love the pretty contrast of the muted exterior and this surprising, happy, colorful interior.
Now just to think up a trip and I'm ready to go :)
Talk to you soon. Svetlana
