Koi Cargo Duffle

Surely you didn’t think I was kidding when I said I had another Cargo Duffle finished? Okay, so here’s the other Cargo Duffle I made for one of the classes that I taught.  It was really fun picking out these fabrics.  I love the Koi (Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cloud 9 Fabrics) and think the rest of the colors really bring it all together.  I added a few simple stitches to the front pocket just to add some interest.  I think I like it.

Hope you’re joining along on C’est La Vie‘s Sew Along.  And take a minute to review my last post that has some tips and be sure to download the updated file right on over at Robert Kaufman.

I’ve seriously had so much fun making these duffles, but I think I have enough now as they’re starting to fill my front coat closet.  I’ll need to make some little plan to get them out my door.

Here’s to moving on to more fun stuff!  I’ve got a blazer that I’ve been waiting to make for so long!  I’m super pumped about it.  What new things are you sewing?  Already changing gears for Spring?

    I love your cargo duffles and have saved the pattern! Do you suggest a heavier fabric for the outside, like a home dec or will quilting cotton work? Thanks for your help!

  4. Nicole J says:

    I would gladly take this off your hands! My favorite one you have made by far!

    Hi Anna!! I think this is my favorite so far!! gorgeous and I love the stitching on the pockets!! thank you again for mentionning my sew along. It is going quite well: I have about 23 members on our flickr group and it is great to see sewer’s progress on their bags!:)

    That little stitching (and the pocket lining) are my favorite! Really, all those colors are awesome – especially together. So beautifully done.

  9. Kim S. says:

    wow! those pockets are so perfect! the pleating on the bellows is just awesome. the top-stitching adds so much to the professionally finished look of the design! just awesome-awesome!

    ohhhh this one’s so great. just keep making them, we won’t judge. 😉

  15. Rhonda says:

    I am so in love with this bag and recently purchased some very cute fabric to make it. Maybe I should try and catch up with the sew along. I will certainly bookmark the pages!

    I am enjoying all of the cargo bags you’ve been sharing. I have the pattern and can’t wait to find some time to make one. Thanks for the pattern and all the inspiration!

  17. Anya says:

    I desperately need some advice on setting the snaps. I can’t get the Dritz setter to work with the size 24 snaps even though it says it should. Once I get my snaps on, my bag is all done! Arrggg…..

  18. Farm Quilter says:

    Your duffles are so adorable! Heavens, all you have to do is put a price on them here on your blog and I’m sure you would sell out immediately and have dozens of special orders!!! I know I will never make one (I have 40 quilts I need to quilt first), so I’d buy/order one!

  19. Those sweet stitches are a great touch!

  20. Love it! (like all the others) If you really need help getting rid of them, I’m sure I can help 😉 I just got back from a trip to IKEA, so it’s sewing room makeover time for me. Yippee!!

  21. Alex M. says:

    These bags are BEAUTIFUL!! I just found out that you are La Crosse based, I was at Olive Juice Quilts and saw a few of the bags!! Do you go in and do tutorials?

  22. s kendron says:

    Every time you make one you add those little things that make them so unique. I love love love seeing what you create. Always a surprise and always so full of eye candy!

  23. amandajean says:

    I love all your cargo duffles, but this one is my very favorite! Those pink pockets are positively perfect! ��

  24. Elsa says:

    Such a lovely Cargo bag! All the details and fabric are wonderful!
    I’ve got my pattern printed and the fabric is waiting for me to make mine ~

  25. I love this bag and can’t wait to make one! It’ll be the perfect carry on bag. I love the brass snaps you did here. Thanks for the beautiful design.

  26. It looks great. I especially like the blue handles with the pink pockets, and I love the grey on the blue handles.

  27. Keami says:

    Is it possible to use the surfer for putting the prices together? Or should I just stick with the sewing machine? I just figured a nice finish with a serger would be cool
