here's a tutorial for the skipping bag I posted here.... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12103.0http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/fabric.jpg
okee it's an odd little pattern but if you mark out the base dimensions and the center line then you can put a plate as shown below to get the curve.http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/pattern.jpg
2 x Outer fabric
2 x Lining
1x lining for the base
1 x outer for the base
if you plan to use interfacing I don't recomend putting it up the straps because it makes it too stiff to turn out.
in the picture shown my straps are actually two inches wide but that left me with a tiny seam allowance and it was quite tight to turn out the right way at the end so I reccomend going at least 2.5"
Lay out your two peices of lining as shown and stitch up the sides (these will become the centre seams)
open the fabric out as above, matching up the centre seams.
fold up the base as shown and lay over the base and pin together
(my pinning is below - gloriana has a good show of pinning in her messenger bag tute)http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/pin.jpg
Stitch the base to the main part of the lining on three sides only!http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/3sides.jpg
Repeat steps two to five with the outer fabric except sew the base on all sideshttp://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/outer.jpg
put the lining inside the outer bag with the right sides together, match the center seams and the straps, pin and join, sewing completley aroun the top edge (i've show a detail of the strap just so you can see)http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/join.jpg
Turn the bag inside out through the hole you left in the base of the lining (like the jordy bag) and before you seal it up make sure you push out the end of the straps so you have some neat corners then fold the holes edges in and stitch it closed (again like the jordy bag!)
Press the top edge of the bag and stitch around the top edge and up the straps.
join the straps together at the top (stitching a box and fill the box with an x is strongest) add a decorative button as below.http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/button.jpg
And you're finished!http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/finish.jpg
decorate as it pleases you....http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/stencil.jpg
