I was asked to make some messenger bags and a duffle bag to co-ordinate with the duffle bag. At first it was a daunting propect as I'd never made a duffle bag before. I did some research on the internet before starting and read a few tutroials to get an idea on how to approach the bag. My next task was to decide how to incorporate the applique part. Once i'd worked this out I decided on the dimensions and got onto it, always wondering if it would work out! I decided to machine quilt the bag to make it stronger and finished off the raw edges internally with bias. Of course when Lulu saw it she instantly said she wants one! I'll have to find the time to make more as they are truely gorgeous and the photos don't do it justice!
