Mini Duffle Bag At Innovative Sewing I found this tutorial how to make this small duffel bag. I wasn't sure if it was ideal for beginners or not but it does say it's easy to make. Isn't it cute? I think this one would look nice embellished with those flat back crystals as well. I've got an obsession with flat back crystals lately.
