the bag looks magnificent.  hippy-ish indeed   Smiley  what are the measurements?  it looks like the perfect size for my school bag.  [must i say i'm a nerd and carry around my dictionary, thesauraus, and numerous other books?  ..therefore, i need room!!]  if you could post the measurements, i'd be thrilled.  thank youu!

How did you make it exactly? It's adorable! That would be an awesome book bag (even though I already have one) :p

Your bag is really neat, I love chaotic quilts like that, I just wish I had the patience.

gorgeous, oh how I love crazy quilts.

Nothing beats going to Denny's at 10 pm with Becoming The Archetype and sharing a milkshake with Seth. Nope, nothing.

Now that, indeed, is a work of art.  Very eye-catching and the perfect size for an overnight/cram the world into it bag!  Grin  I love it!

Awesome bag!  But definately not too big for everyday.  I carry on a regular basis:  wallet, sunglasses, phone, assorted tins of altoids and gum, four to six diapers, pack of wipes, changing pad, two books, three to five toys, coloring book and crayons, bag of assorted meds, bandaids, skin cream, etc... think it would all fit???

Wouldn't mind -- and would be quite grateful --  if your tutorial came with measurements... hint, hint... as my frazzled brain is not good at computing these on my own.

Okay... here's what I whipped up for a pattern...

1. I sewed all of the patches together into one large piece of fabric about 24" wide and 40" long.
2. I cut my pattern pieces out of a solid color fabric and pinned them to the right-side of my patched fabric.
3. I sewed the pieces like you would a pillow leaving small openings to turn the pieces right-side out.
4. I sewed the long side/bottom/strap piece into one continuous loop.
5. I cut a second piece of fabric the same size as the front and sewed pockets onto it (this became the inside divider.)
6. I sewed the back piece with the inside divider on top of it to the side/bottom/strap, wrong sides together, up to the dotted line in the picture.
7. I sewed the front piece to the side/bottom/strap.

Is that as clear as mud?  Wink It's been a long day so if any of that doesn't make sense let me know and I'll try to clarify.  Smiley
