Scrappy Orange Daily Duffle December 12 2014, 0 Comments

We have another Daily Duffle bag we want to share with you! We coined this bag the Sassafras Lane duffle. We made it from our large stash of orange scraps. We cut them into 2 1/2" strips and pretended they were a jelly-roll, a very orange jelly-roll! We paired the orange scraps with a black and white zigzag and I absolutely LOVE the result!

We found the perfect colored zipper for the bag top. We like to call this the Sass Orange =] It matches the orange walls of our studio. Isn't it pretty!

The green grass covered with yellow leaves scattered about made a great backdrop for this bright bag. Unfortunately I am not tall enough to not be in the photo. Please ignore me stepping on my tippy toes!

Here is a close up of the handles -- I fussy cut the zigzag fabric so the points would go down the center of the handles. We used 18 different orange fabrics... because 9 just wasn't enough and one great orange diamond print for the lining!
