Anyone know of a tutorial or pattern for a lunch bag like this one? Thanks for your help!

Even though the directions are for oilcloth and quilted fabrics, I'm sure you can use whatever you want.

The original site is gone, but the pattern can still be retrieved.

Is it just me... or are those photos totally NOT potholders...?
It's not you.  They USED to be pictures of potholders; I'm not sure where they've gone off to.  I had a printed copy of this tutorial, but I don't remember where it is. Sad

Hi there!
Last week I did these two cases....I saw this idea in an art street market and I just made it. The most difficult thing is calculating where do you must to sew the beginning of the zipper because it will determine the width and the length of your case. If you have that clear the sewing matter is quite simple.
My first creation was the toilet kit. This was made by denim in the outside and by white cotton fabric in the inside.

My second creation, the glasses case, was made by leather and the lining was polar (this fabric is very soft so I thought it would be perfect for the glasses).
[images]
I hope you like my cases. If you made some of them, please show it to me!
Thanks for reading!!
When I saw this post, I immediately thought of this tutorial on Creadoo.  My German is a little rusty, so I couldn't really translate it (and I was never very good at reading it anyway), but the pictures should give some clue as to how it all goes together.

Please share with me an easy bag that I can make, following instructions from this site.  I would like to print it out and go to town with it.

Thank you so much for any help sent my way.

Happy Crafting.
It's not from Craftster, but the With Love Tote tutorial is super easy (only 3 pieces) and it's lined! 
If you want to have boxed corners, read this page as well:  Tutorial: Box the Bottom Corners of a Bag

There used to be a PDF of it all, but it's gone now.

p.s. i can't seem to embed photos from my flickr into my posts properly. Sad when i grab the html from the "Share This" menu it ends up just posting all the code instead. i'm no expert, but as far as i can recall from what i learned during my myspace profile personalization days, pasting the html code of a picture is supposed to embed it, right? should i be doing something differently?
Another quick and dirty solution is to right click on the images, go to "Properties", and copy the image URL.  Use that in the <IMG>link</IMG> code (with [] in place of <>).  If you use Firefox, you can right click on the image, choose "Copy Image Location", and proceed as before.  This may not be within Flickr's rules; so, check before you do it.

"taggettes" it's my favorite font. I found it originally on DAfont.com but I think they took it down. It's available other places though. Just google it.

You are very welcome. If you get stuck let me know I'd be happy to try to help!
dafont still has it! Cool Yay!  Tagettes

Your skirt looks good!  Did you use a pattern or did you just wing it?

Thanks, y'all!  This really helps.  If anybody else has suggestions, don't hold back. Smiley

I saw the Jamie that is apparently also a favorite of Brad Pitt and thought I had hit the jackpot. A co-worker is having a baby and I would really like to sew her and her husband a diaper bag that will work for both of them.

Problem #1:  I know nothing about what makes a good diaper bag.

Problem #2:  Her husband is a very large man (muscular and very tall former football player) and while the Jamie bag looks cool, it doesn't really suit his size.

I was thinking of using these tutorials to make a knock-off version of the Jamie bag, but I would really like some input from people who have actually had need of a diaper bag to give me some tips.
