    Little Duffles

    I made these for my three daughters-in-law, and my best friend, for Christmas gifts. They are in sets of three. I used two fat quarters to make a "sandwich" for each set, and alternated the fabric that is on the outside. The tiny and large sizes are lined with the fabric that is on the outside of the mediums sizes. Fun to make!

    They look so very handy for taking things in when you travel. I can just see make-up in one, jewelry in one and perhaps medicine or fingernail polish in the other one. I know they will be so appreciated.

    You did a wonderful job on these little duffles. Did you use interfacing or
    batting inside?

    No, I used a pattern that I bought at my LQS where I took a two hour class on how to make them. Here's a link to the pattern.

    Love these. Have you seen the price of cosmetic sets like these? Even the cheap ones start at $10. Yours are really nice. I love the colors.

    Thanks! I used a thin fusible Heat & Bond but you could use a Pelion or anything you already have that isn't too thick.

    Did two fat quarters make all three sizes? Or did it take 2 fat quarters for each bag? What a great gift idea, what's the name of the pattern?

    It took just two fat quarters (one for outside and one for lining) for all three sizes...the medium, small, and tiny size. The pattern has directions for a large size but I didn't make any of those. All I did was make a quilt sandwich using the heat and bond fleece with the two fat quarters and cut all three finished sizes out. (The pattern has you start with a bigger size piece for each size and then trim it down. I took the quicker route! I made templates and cut around them)
