omgmarissa- The fabrics a faux fur. Its great and soft and when we get to go sit in the halllway and read....I have a furry pillow!
pillagethatvillage- That is SOOO cool we have the same name. I've never even heard of someone with a name anywhere near mine.
brookem- The strap was bought from Joanns.
twiggymissretro- The fabric was bought at Joanns as well.
Well here's my attempt at a tutorial. I'm going to explain it because I didn't take any pictures while making it...and I'm not making another one. So here goes:
I started out with the Simplicity Pattern 9000.
I made it way, way, way bigger than that though. You'll just have to guess at what size you want.
Instead of cutting out the strap of fabric I made it out of webbing. And this bag pattern calls for flaps with the velcro...I didn't like that so I made the front piece come all the way down.
I also put the pockets in before I sewed the sides to the back.
(Sorry if I'm confusing)
Then it was really flimpsy and it needed some support so I stuck a piece of card with quilting batting on either side in the back piece. I had to slide it down through the front flap. (that probably made no sense so I apologize).
Hope that made sense.
