I've been wanting to make a duffel bag for a super long time! This one was inspired by Abbey Bominable, a super cute character from Monster High. She's supposed to be the daughter of a yeti so her color story reflects a winter palette (with pink thrown in for good measure). I made the pattern using strips of butcher's paper and hand painting the sections. One side has a zippered pocket and I added plastic d-rings for the option of using the long strap. The keychain is Abbey's pet Shiver, a little woolly mammoth which I made out of felt and faux fur.
