Make a Duffel Bag That's Better Than Santa's

Some sturdy fabric and other materials, basic sewing know-how, and the instructions that follow are all you'll need to make a duffel bag.

Fig 17. After the duffel bag is completed, sew a buckle onto one end of a yard-long section of webbed strapping. Fig 18. Slide a hook fastener onto the strap's free end. Fig 19. Pull the strap through the buckle. Fig 20. Sew on a second fastener so that you wind up with a strap like the one you see in Fig. 20.
