well, to make this short, I would like to make the weekender bag. It looks like a lot of fun and I have a heavy duty sewing machine so I think I could easily do it. The only problem is that I do not want to spent $11 to $15 dollars for a pattern especially because I'm not going to spend that much on fabric. Does anyone know a free similar pattern or tutorial to help enable my cheapness? it doesn't have to be exactly alike, I just would like an attractive bag.
