bag series: portside duffle bag

The portside travel set features everything you need in a weekender bag. 
The pattern allows for making the duffle bag, a travel pouch and a roomy dopp bag and provides details on material quantities to make all three. Please note, in this class, we will be making the duffle bag only. The details below are for the duffle bag quantities only. 

The duffle bag (as pictured) features handles that can be carried or slung over the shoulder as well as a removable adjustable strap. It measures 20"L x 11.5"W x 12"H. Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, inserting a zipper and basic hand sewing.
