A new challenge: This duffle bag pushed my abilities as a leatherworker more than any other project has. Specifically, sewing a zipper into circular gussets (one side with a pocket and one side with a handle) with the cobra sewing machine. Having never done it before (and having only been using the cobra for 3 months), I was nervous that as the last step, I might make a mistake sewing the ends on and ruin the bag. Thankfully, lots of practice on test pieces and advice from some other very kind craftsmen allowed me to get it right the first try. .
The dimensions of the duffle are 17”x8.5” (perfect for a carry-on item on a plane), with a 1.5”x48” shoulder strap. .
If anyone is interested in making one of their own, I’d be happy to share the dimensions of all the bag’s pieces with you. Just shoot me a message and I’ll send them your way💀
