Get Out Of Town Duffel 2.0

As part of the Travel Handmade program from By Annie, my local quilt shop hosted a class to make the Get Out Of Town Duffel 2.0.

I love this bag, and it’s a good thing that I do because I have invested about twenty-five hours into making it. Whoever said handmade items were cheap never made one of these babies! The work paid off. It’s a great bag, and my below photo was chosen as a runner up in the By Annie monthly photo contest.

The main body is Alexander Henry’s Sewing Sorrows print. This fabric cracks me up, all honest and real sewing problems, as told from these retro ladies in a fun comic strip.


I felt the bag lining fabric should be light and bright, so that I could see when I am looking inside. I used some of this Heather Ross frog print.

The accent fabric is my very favorite of the Art Gallery Fabrics denim solids, it’s called Wicked Sky.

Bag zippers, zipper pulls (I mixed colors!), purse hardware, mesh fabric (there’s pockets lining the bag’s inside), Soft & Stable, and polypro strapping are all from By Annie.  I found her prices to be so reasonable and ya know what, the products are awesome. For this being my third bag project, I am by no means a pro and I need products that won’t have me crying….like the ladies in my main print!

You guys, I just adore this bag. I can’t wait to use it and, well, GET OUT OF TOWN!
