A lightbulb moment!

I have always loved the big overnight duffel type bags. I wanted to make one of my own. The only difference is I do not like the way the insides looked. Most of the duffel bags that I see have binding over the seams on the it (in my opinion) a not too finished look. I knew there had to be a different way to do it but for the life of me I could not figure it out....then one night as I was trying desperately to get some brain went gaga! I had that ultimate light bulb moment of AHA! So you know what I did next right....I got up and sewed til 3 in the morning! I am soooo happy with the way this bag came out....its exactly like I envisioned!

The front of the bag....2 big pockets
 I did contrasting print straps and black piping around the whole bag.
 a double zip zipper.....I am soooo loving this
 a side pocket....fits my cell phone perfectly!
 and voila.....the inside. As you can see it is completely seam free....very neat and tidy!
I love when what you envision comes to reality and it is everything and more! Did I say before that I have truly found my passion?!
