I am bursting at the seams happy about this new duffle pattern: the Cargo Duffle! The lovely folks at Robert Kaufman asked me to come up with a pattern that they could post on their website. You know what that means, right? It's for YOU and it's FREE! I can see this pattern working with so many fabrics and it's just the perfect size (if you ask me) for an overnight bag or carry on.
And those cute front pockets?! Aren't they awesome?! I want to squish them. So are you ready to make a Cargo Duffle? It's available now! There is a downloadable PDF on the Robert Kaufman website and you can get busy and make your own! Just in time for all the Holiday fun, too!
This duffle was made with the awesome new line by Carolyn Friedlander called Botanics. I feel genuinely giddy over how awesome they are and couldn't be happier with being able to sew with them. Carolyn has this beautiful way with design and color, to me it's pure heaven (on fabric that is).
I have a few more to show you, so stay tuned! Hurrah!
PS. in the pattern I call for a 26" coverall zipper, they're lovely because they zip from both ends. I found the Coats & Clark ones at my local Hancock Fabrics. I also had my friend find some YKK brand on Amazon, Coverall 26" Zipper. The snaps are Dritz brand (also purchased at Hancock) size 24. You can also find great snaps at Snap Source.
Oh, and I would be thrilled to see any you make! You can add them to the Noodlehead flickr group or the Robert Kaufman flickr group or both!
The amazon link to the zippers is an affiliate link, but of course I definitely recommend them, and have purchased them myself.
