Arizona Cargo Duffle

Thank you so much for the helpful links you gave me yesterday for my failed paper piecing attempt! I'm sure I will give it another go because I really want some of those feathers!

On a very successful and happy note, I made a Cargo Duffle bag last week! I've had it on my must make NOW list since the pattern came out but I never could settle on the fabrics to use. Well, when I saw Anna's tote bag in the Arizona fabrics I knew that was it! I pre-ordered my fabrics and cut into them the day I got them.

I was slightly intimidated by making a duffle bag but I knew how great Anna's patterns are (plus she gives extra tips on her blog). I just took it step by step and had no problems at all! All in all, it took a bit of time but was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

I love your version of this bag- one of my favorites! Do you mind sharing what the fabric on the bottom is? Thanks!

Another cargo duffle that leaves me speechless. It's lovely!

I love the pink fabric inside your pockets. Can you tell me where I might be able to find that?
