Webster Dictionary, 1913: Car"pet*bag`, A portable bag for travelers; -- so called because originally made of carpet.
Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary: car·pet·bag: a traveler's bag made of carpet and widely used in the U.S. in the 19th century
Encarta: traveling bag: a traveling bag made of a thick fabric such as carpet, commonly used in the 19th century

While real carpet may be much to heavy for Hitty, one could always use a fabric that suggests carpet, such as tapestry fabrics.

The bag should be made like a large soft sided 'suitcase', (Hitty-size, of course).
One could use upholstry fabric that is not too heavy or cotton that has a print that resembles it.
Perhaps even a large knitted bag or crocheted bag!
We'll leave it up tp to everyone's imagination, as long as it fits the dictionary descriptions above.
