Develop Patterns and Sew Duffle Bags and Variation (New)

On Campus Short Course Bag Design Product Development

This course will teach you to make a barrel duffle bag. Draft the patterns, cut the appropriate material, stitch the bag with lining, and sew the zippers.

Duffle bags were historically popularized in the military as heavy materials were used to enable service men to carry their items easily in a barrel like bag with just 1 opening. But in contemporary times, duffle bags are a common bag style used in casual to formal settings with a variety of materials. This course will teach you to draft a barrel duffle, cut the appropriate material and stitch the bag with lining. This course will also cover the techniques of sewing zippers.
