• Sew a Portside Duffle Bag

Sew a Portside Duffle Bag



Travel in style with your own DIY duffle bag! In this workshop, we'll make the Portside Duffle from Grainline Studio-- perfectly sized for a long weekend (or week if you’re a light packer). This duffle features handles which can be carried or slung over the shoulder as well as a removable adjustable shoulder strap.

  Here's what we'll cover:

  • How to follow a commercial bag pattern
  • How to install a zipper
  • How to use D rings and swivel bolt snaps to attach adjustable straps
  • How to sew a lined duffle bag from start to finish

Fabric and other supplies will be available for purchase in our retail shop at a 10% discount to students. All tools needed to complete this class will be provided and sewing machines will be available courtesy of BERNINA of America.

Skill requirements: This is a confident beginner sewing workshop; you do not need to have any experience sewing bags, but you must have basic machine-sewing skills. Our Sewing 101 class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for this class. (You can register for one of our upcoming Sewing 101 workshops here.) If you're unsure whether you have enough sewing experience for this class, please send a brief email summarizing your sewing experience to hello@brooklyncraftcompany.com.
