Welcome to the Mini Duffle Bag tutorial! here you will find photos, list of materials and links for things i use, PDF download and Video tutorial!

This is not a full written tutorial, please refer to the Video tutorial for full instruction.

This bag is great in a more rigid fabric such as Canvas, unholstery fabrics.

Cotton fabrics would require medium weight to heavy weight interfacing to have a more rigid bag.

Zipper size – #3 or #5

I used Cotton for the hidden pocket lining.

    I am looking for the panel measurements for this pattern. I CANNOT find them anywhere. I have watched the tutorial and downloaded and printed the side panel but WHERE do I find the panel measurements? I want to make this today starting yesterday. Thanks

    I cannot for the life of me find the file. It’s downloading only one page. Can you help please? Thank you!! Love your tutorials!!

    • charmedbyashley

      it only has one page, the dimensions of the rest of the duffle is written inside the pattern piece on the bag, since they are just rectangles there are not actual pattern pieces to cut out for these pieces.

      have fun!
