You may have noticed this beast of a bag when I shared my Luna Sol booth recap post. Guess what? Today's the day I push this jumbo baby out of the nest! I'd like to introduce you all to my new bag pattern, the Guild Duffle.
The Guild Duffle gets its name from the running joke about how many projects I bring to show at my guild's Sew & Tell session. I need a pretty big bag to lug them all! I anticipate most people would use this as an overnight bag or a carry-on during flights (I designed it to meet size carry-on guidelines), I'm mostly going to be using mine to ferry lots of quilty goodness around.
The Guild Duffle measures 14” H x 18” W x 8” D and features two jumbo gusseted pockets with press snaps, thick handles, piping, a double zipper, a removable bag base, and a detachable, adjustable strap. I like to think of this gal as the Collegiate Tote's big sister since they share several qualities.
My pattern testers made some big beauties that I hope will inspire you!
@leahrene made a bewitching out of Cotton + Steel prints, cuz who doesn't feel a little witchy when dealing with travel? :-p
@marci_girl's playful duffle in Koko Seki prints are giving me some serious color palette goals. And that red piping! This bag just kills me.
Stephanie put her own twist on the Guild Duffle by swapping out the corded handles for canvas webbing and press snaps with leather tabs.
Kate took a similar approach with leather pocket flap tabs an flat handles.
The Guild Duffle is available now in my Craftsy shop! Happy sewing!
