I had a pink duffle bag that was falling apart and I am too cheap to buy a new one, so I bought some fabric, took took the bag apart, kept parts of it to use in the new bag, and used the other pieces as patterns. This is the biggest project that I have done. By the end I didn't care how it turned out, I just wanted to finish it. 
Here is the finished bag

Here's the inside

Here's a side view

This is the original bag

This is awesome!  I wish I could even attempt to do this.

After you have done this, would you make another?

That looks amazing.  I wouldn't have the courage to tackle a project like that.
