Make Your Own Duffle Bag!


This Thursday! Come and learn how to make your own duffel bag with the team from Cole-tac! Students will be given all of the parts needed to make their own bag and will work step by step through completion. Some of the skills that will be used are part layout, straight stitching, webbing installation, zipper installation, binding raw edges, and bag customization. Be ready to work with heavy duty Cordura nylon and make a bag that is tough as nails!   It is encouraged to have some basic sewing machine skills prior to taking this class.
