Description

I made this moderate size duffle bag with matching toiletry/makeup bag for a family member for Christmas. She wanted bright and fun fabric and loved purple.

I bought some fun duck cloth and added light purple webbing for straps and for the zipper. I added pockets on the side of the duffle and embroidered B’s in purple. I did not line the duffle because I made a ripstop bag to go inside to put her suit in. I added a double pocket on the inside of the suit bag and hand embroidered the front. I used an old not used shoelace and a toggle. The toiletry/makeup bag I used the same fabric combo but I lined this. All of this fits in the duffle plus a pair of flip flops and a towel. I also made a removable purple suede tassle. I used a couple different ideas for the duffle and added some of my own. Oh almost forgot to say on the caolina pattern for the US folk use a 3/8" not a 5/8" sa and trim the sides when you put on the seam binding it will work way better.

Since this is a duffle set for the gym for her swin class I would pair this with for her Beach Blanket Bingo Piece Plus Size for the ModCloth Handmade contest

    Thank you for the fabulous tutorial! And your generosity to share! I always try to make homemade gifts, now more so with the economy not so great. And for chemo baskets made up for the patients when they go to chemo or come home… fabulous little perk in there for holding some calming tea for them! Thank you again! packaging supplies
