Rachel from Family Ever After created a duffle bag for her daughter to carry to dance class.  She added a ruffle to the top of the outside pocket, and it became the Dance Duffle Ruffle Bag.  But it doesn’t have to be just for dance gear.  It could carry soccer gear, gymnastics gear, or it could just be a cute duffle for overnights at grandma’s house.  She shares a tutorial showing how to make one.  Get the how-to.

    Hi. Your bag is so pretty, and I am try to do it as my first sewing project to my daughter. Could you please let me knwo what is the finish dimention of the bag.

    I’m not the project designer so I don’t have a bag in front of me to measure, but from looking at the cutting diagram in her tutorial I’d guess that the bag is 14″ long. The circles on the end make it hard to figure height, but my guess is that they’d be less than 8″ in diameter. How much less, I don’t know unless I do some more involved math. Hope that helps! –Anne

    Correction: The ends are squared, so I’d say that 7.5″ is a fairly good guesstimate for the height.
