The Doufflay (Mini Duffle) Sewing Pattern


Pattern Description

The Doufflay if a miniature duffle bag that can be carried in the crook of one's arm OR as a crossbody bag! 

The downloadable PDFs include all pattern pieces, fully illustrated instructions on how to construct the bag, as well as PNG files that can be imported into craft cutter or laser software.

Note that this pattern is for intermediate to advanced sewists who have experience with zippers and gusset construction techniques. It is a bias-bound project, but don't be afraid! It's actually not that hard as the pattern is designed for quick assembly in mind for those of us who want to bulk produce for craft fairs!
