Almost there....

I'm in the final stages of the duffle bag.  This photo shows the last stages before it actually takes shape.

The body of this bag is just one large piece.  The webbing is both for accent and to give structure/support to the bag.

There is a great handle on the top - I special ordered it.  It's attached with the webbing and I did some of that corner to corner tacking to make sure it's firmly attached.

There is welt on the top, and around the side pieces, which will make the edges more sturdy.

It's hard to tell from this picture (I had to stand on a chair to get it all in one frame) but there is also a fold up flap on the front that velcros down.  It's for holding a fishing rod, I've been told.

At the bottom, there are velcro strips - I bought this 'one wrap' that has the loop on one side and the hook on the other, which makes it a great option for attaching to the hooks on the back of the seat.

Just three more seams and it's done!

Happy Sewing,

Susan, You are amazing. Thank you so much for your willingness to take on this project. When Jack first asked me about it I was clueless as to where to start. It's not the first time a Twitter friend has come to the rescue, and I'm sure it won't be the last. ;) Fabulous job, Friend! ~ jan
