Introducing: Travel Duffle Bag 2.1

We are so excited to announce our brand-new updated pattern, Travel Duffle Bag 2.1!

Learn more about our largest travel duffle in the Introduction video below and find out what you need to make this project in our A Closer Look video HERE.


Functional yet stylish, this sturdy large duffle carries everything you need for a weekend trip — and still fits in the overhead bin*.

The full-zippered top allows easy access to all your gear. Slip and zippered pockets inside and out keep everything organized and close at hand.

Carry with a padded adjustable carrying strap or quick-grab handles. A trolley sleeve on back slips over handles on rolling luggage.

The finished bag measures 13"H x 21"W x 8"D.

*NOTE: Airline restrictions do change, so be sure to confirm baggage regulations before you travel!


Travel Duffle Bag 2.1 is an update of our popular Travel Duffle Bag, Travel Duffle Bag 2.0, and Travel Duffle Bag II patterns which were released in 2013, 2019, and 2021 respectively.

The new 2.1 version doesn’t change the design of the bag, but we’ve changed a number of dimensions and rearranged the steps to make the pattern easier to read and follow.

We also filmed an Add-on Video to help you with the more unique or challenging aspects of the pattern.

Since the Travel Duffle Bag 2.1 pattern includes a coupon to get the Add-On Video at no charge, we would recommend that you purchase the new and improved version of the pattern.


We have a variety of different duffle bag patterns at (See our Travel Bag Comparison Chart here.) But, just because Travel Duffle 2.1 is the largest, that doesn’t mean it’s only good for traveling!

Here are a few ideas for ways you can use this functional travel bag:

  • Sewing Retreat — pack fabrics, tools and supplies, an iron, and more!
  • Weekender — there’s the perfect amount of space for packing clothes, toiletries, and anything else you might need on a weekend out of town.
  • Baby — whether it’s an overnight bag for a parent at the hospital or a way to carry all of a little one’s needs, this duffle has you covered.
  • Storage — this duffle bag is also a great way to store fabric, blankets, sheets, and more.

Let us know in the comments if you can think of other ways you might use this handy duffle!
