Was inspired by a post by 'xperimentl' here...... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339980.0 using a sew mama sew tutorail here.... http://www.sewmamasew.com/store/media/blog/SMSAprilBags.pdf - the shoulder bag option
Have never made a proper bag before so liked the look of this as it didn't need the dreaded zip!
This is it with 'stuff' in it, makes the top scrumple
This gives you an idea of scale, apologies for bad pic
Only changes I'd make in future would be thicker handles, but all in all quite pleased only took about 3 hours to make (including ripping seams and re-stiching bits when i made mistakes)
