My husband wanted me to make him a bag for his exercise clothes. I had told him that if he just shows me a bag I can make it....so he found this duffle bag at work and well...you see the finished product. I was going to do a tutorial but it was hard when I was in the creating/thinking stage. I will tell you that the diameter of the circles on each end was 10"(grabbed a bowl from the kitchen), the actual body was 31" x 22". I had a 22" zipper. I put the zipper on first. Then I put the straps on, sewed on with zipper open. Then the ends, just like putting in a sleeve...easy...real easy. I think it took me all of 2 hours and that is with the calculating and planning. I will say that you could go 30 inches on the length, I had to ease fabric in when putting the ends on. I tried to stuff the bag to make a nice picture but I didn't do so good...oh well...He is so happy with it and well...I guess I am too. I did this on Saturday.
