I'm looking for a pattern for a large duffel bag.  I've found several patterns for duffles, but they all seem to be for really small duffels (which I don't understand the point of!).  Sure, I could enlarge them, but that seems like a lot of work and I'm not trying to 're-create the wheel' here.  

The one pattern that I've found for a slightly larger duffel just had an AWFUL pattern.  It was written basically in paragraph form and the author would give instructions out of order, which drove me crazy and caused several bad mistakes on my part.  I would follow along, one sentence at a time, but then when I got to something that was out of order and actually should have happened a few steps ago, I'd be in trouble.  I actually gave up on this bag and will not be finishing it.

Has anyone used a pattern for a larger duffel that they would recommend?  I don't mind paying money for a pattern if it's a good one, since I'll probably be making several of these.

Thanks in advance.  Any help is appreciated!

this one looks easy enough to enlarge, if it isn't big enough.
