Emily’s Cargo Duffle

I couldn’t make one without making another, right?  Seems only fair.  Emily is quite pleased with her very own Cargo Duffle (free pattern designed by me for Robert Kaufman).  I just loved seeing her reaction to this bag.  She was so excited to put her things in it right away.

If you can’t tell I love this project and using different combinations!  Next month I’m going to be teaching a class locally for the Cargo Duffle, so stay tuned for updates and information on that.  I’m very excited to be able to teach it!

I’m slowly running out of batting scraps to make more duffles, so I guess that means I need to be making some more quilts.  Love that.

Fabrics: Suzy Ultman (Handle with Care) for Robert Kaufman – Kite Chase , Comma (Brigitte Heitland) for Moda, Kaufman Interweave Chambray in Sorbet

Stay warm everyone!

    I love this duffel and can’t wait to make one. Would it work with all quilters cotton or is the canvas a necessity for stability?
