Botanics Cargo Duffles & File Update

More Cargo Duffle action over here!  Finally showing the other two Cargo Duffles I made for quilt market.  Gosh, I love them all.  And I might be keeping them all to myself, I can’t choose!

I do want to mention that there was some missing information on the cutting list that is now corrected.  If you’ve downloaded the first version and haven’t sewn it up yet, be sure to stop by again and download the updated file.

Okay, so these two beauties are again made with Carolyn Friedlander‘s newest line for Robert Kaufman called Botanics.  I am anxiously awaiting to place an order for more of these prints, they are all just so good.  And did you notice the very subtle and beautiful metallic accents in some of the prints?  Love.  Anyway, the remainder of the duffle fabrics are a linen denim and yarn dyed essex fabrics.  I keep a pretty good size stock of fabrics like these on hand.  I can always find prints that work well with them.

Oh and did you see Carolyn’s clammy cargo duffle?!  Gah, I’m just melting over those clams!  So good.

    Nice fabric choices! I really like the orange!
    If you have a second, could you share what type of zipper you used? I was looking for something similar for a bag I’m making and haven’t been able to find anything nice at the regular craft stores. Thank you!

    1. Anna says:

      Hi Sara, the zipper is a coats and clark brand 26″ coverall zipper. It’s noted in the pattern’s PDF. I also ordered some similar YKK brand from amazon. Lots of sizes and colors there.

    2. Sara C. says:

      Thank you! I must have overlooked those. I’m sure JoAnn’s stocks them. I’ll check out Amazon too.

  16. I saw these at Quilt Market! I remember asking about the pattern! So much happened that weekend, it’s all a blur now. Small world! I love these.

  17. Cindy says:

  18. Lydia says:

    Um, I’m JUST seeing this now and it’s amazing! I want one! Of course, I usually want one of everything you make anyway. I’m coming over tomorrow to view it in person. 🙂
