duffle bag

I like the way this bag turned out. All the cotton fabric was half price, so it wasn't expensive to make. The problem I had was sewing through all the layers of fabric and had to hand sew some parts. I also used 3 different fabrics instead of 2. Will be good as a gift for someone, I think.

Q&A with kasfrog16205111

judykfox119339004 asked:
If the duffle bag is only 12 x 15, why is the zipper 20” long? What size paper is needed to print the pattern?
kasfrog16205111 answered:
The zipper is longer than the bag, it just goes to the inside so it doesn't matter. You could trim it off if you wanted after finishing, but I didn't bother. The pattern prints out on normal A4 printer paper , then you just join them together with tape. Hope this helps. Karen
judykfox119339004 asked:
The reason I ask about the pattern printout is because I only get 14 and one half inches x 14 on the printed paper. So assuming the seams are one half inch, the length is only 13.5.
kasfrog16205111 answered:
Hi Judy Dug out my pattern, and it printed out at 17x12 1/2 front and back. Side piece 11inches high, finished bag 16 x 11 1/2. Maybe your printer settings are not at 100 %? Just a thought. Let me know how you go Karen
judykfox119339004 asked:
Thanks Karen for confirming the exact size of the pattern pieces. This really helps. Also, you might mention in the pattern directions to make the printer is set using the ‘landscape’ setting. Otherwise the printed pattern will be incorrect.
kasfrog16205111 answered:
That would help, Judy, but I'm only a maker, like you, so I can't alter pattern directions. Hope your bag turns out nice. I've made 3! 😊
