I'd like to make some duffle bags for my boys (ages 2,5, & 7).  I've never made one before so I'm not sure what fabrics to use.  I'd like to be able to personalize them.  Either by using a print fabric (think Spiderman or something like that) or just by putting their names on the outside.  I can cut vinyl with my silhouette for names or I can take the fabric somewhere for embroidery.  I've made a few bags with quilting cotton and heavy interfacing but I always feel like they wrinkle way too easily and I don't care for that.  But something like duckcloth isn't going to come in a cute print for boys.  Suggestions?  Also suggestions for a good duffle bag pattern or tutorial would be helpful.  Thanks!

I've seen some cute printed canvas type materials at fabric.com before.  Not spiderman, but certainly stripes, nautical themes, animals and things like that, if that helps at all.
