Retro Duffel Bag

The Italian was suppose to take the kids to his parents house the past weekend.  Unfortunately my little George's ear infection from 2 weeks ago never went away, so we ended up back at the pediatrician's on Saturday morning for our second round of antibiotics.



BUT, before all the illness drama went down, I worked away on a Retro Duffel Bag for George to take his precious belongs with him to Grandma's house.  He requested a green bag when asked what color he wanted.  When he woke up at midnight Friday night in pain and with a fever, I had just finished the Retro Duffel Bag.  It was perfect timing because when I told him his bag was done he quickly got excited.  I love how easy it is to distract my kids.



He was excited and I was too.  I love the way the bag turned out.  The tutorial is well written and easy to follow, and the bag is very easy to make and comes together quickly.



George uses his bag around the house to carry all his stuff.  I'm hoping that soon he'll get to take his new Retro Duffel Bag on a very special trip to Grandma's house, so my pregnant self can have a weekend vacation at home!!  If I do get a weekend to myself, watch out.  I have big plans that included securing myself the prize for craziest friend that Annee has!  I'll will for sure keep you all posted!

I have the original green duffel circa 1980! Yours is much cuter (although they are pretty close to identical!)
