FO(s): Two duffels

Quiltcon! It's here! By the time you read this, I will already be in Austin. I made a new duffel bag for the occasion, and an extra for my friend, Rhonda.

FO: Rhonda's Bag

I made this one for Rhonda. I used a Dear Stella print, Flea Market Fancy seeds, and a Stamped print for the outside.


I decided to use a little Aviary 2 for the inside, as well as some Innocent Crush woodcut and more seeds.

FO: Cosmonaut Duffle

As for my bag, I went with Cosmonaut Pearl Bracelets, a stripe from Out to Sea, and a pink/white pinstripe. Classy!

I used this Gingercake pattern. I really love the resulting bags. I had a little trouble with the pattern, but I definitely recommend it. Just be patient, and read through before you start cutting. I ended up wasting some fabric because of my hastiness. The bottom of the bag is quilted for durability, which I appreciate! I might add extra reinforcement in the sides next time, but other than that, perfection!


  1. Have fun at Quiltcon! Can't wait to hear all about it.

    Your bags turned out great.

  2. they are both gorgeous but your friend is very lucky! i would love to have a bag like that.

    have fun at quiltcon!

  3. I love that you made your own bags. Have fun!

  4. both bags turned out awesome! have a great time!

  5. Oh, have fun!! I so wish I were going to be there! I tried to convince Kevin last minute that we should go, but he couldn't get off work!

    I'll be stalking all of social media to catch glimpses of all the fun! Have some for me!!!

  6. Love your bags! I wish I was going, too. Have fun and I hope you take lots of pictures to share :)

  7. Love, love, love them! Have fun!

  8. They are both adorable my friend!! So glad to meet you here in TX :-)

  11. I love these bags! Have fun on your trip :)

  12. I never would have thought o sew a duffle bag...these look pretty cool! Just said the bottoms are reinforced with quilting but are the rest of the bags pretty durable with just cotton fabric (I was thinking you'd use a linen or canvas or something...but what do I know!).

  13. i do love these duffles so much! i bought the pattern and im excited to make two for sara and henry! we went to joanns the other day and they picked out their zippers. bright green and purple! ;) xo
