How to Make a Duffle Bag - DIY
Purchase a Duffle Bag kit from Sailrite and watch this video to complete a versatile and attractive duffle bag that you will love. This is a great kit for new sewers and owners of Sailrite sewing machines. You will put into practice and learn many of the skills that are typically required for upholstery and canvas applications. Not only will you learn a lot, but you will be left with a great looking duffle bag!
Quality bag, straightforward assembly, great instructions
First rate materials and instruction video made this a pleasure to fabricate, and the finished product exceeded my expectations. I needed a custom sized bag and found it easy to adjust the dimensions of the stock duffle, came out great and was a joy to make.
Can't wait to start sewing!
Size adjustment potential
Love the kit! If you changed the dimensions to 22 x 14 x 9 inches you’d have a carry on bag kit that meets airline carry on limits.. I’d buy that!
Great idea! I've passed this along, but if you wanted to modify the duffle bag kit I'm sure that would be easily done. Often times airlines will accept slightly oversize carry on bags, but if you try this and need any advice, feel free to reach out to us via phone at 260-244-4647 or via email at email@example.com and we would be glad to help.
Always great products.
The bag showed up in a timely manner. I have made one bag before and will be giving this bag as a Christmas gift.
I recently purchased the Sailrite duffle bag kit. The project went well and I produced a nice bag. The instructions on the video were spot on and very helpful. The cut out patterns were great and everything came together. The only thing I would change (my opinion) is to put a 1" seam allowance on the bottom Panel to allow for a better fold over onto the foam padding. Basic written instructions and measurements would also have been a great help as I had no computer access in my sewing area and I had to constantly race back to another room to view the video . Great product ...thanks Steve
