here's a tutorial for the skipping bag I posted here....
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12103.0

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.

STEP ONE
Cut
2 x Outer fabric
2 x Lining
and
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"

 STEP TWO
http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/step2.jpg
Lay out your two peices of lining as shown and stitch up the sides (these will become the centre seams)




STEP THREE
http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/step3.jpg
open the fabric out as above, matching up the centre seams.


STEP FOUR
http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/foldup.jpg
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)

STEP FIVE
Stitch the base to the main part of the lining on three sides only!

STEP SIX
Repeat steps two to five with the outer fabric except sew the base on all sides
http://jen.f1-comics.com/tute/outer.jpg



STEP SEVEN
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


STEP EIGHT
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!)

STEP NINE
Press the top edge of the bag and stitch around the top edge and up the straps.

STEP TEN
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.

And you're finished!

I just made this and well, um, hmmmm... it is really wiiiiiiiiiide. The 17 inches looked a little wide to me, I dunno maybe I screwed something up? But on the bright side, once I put some velcro in it, it will look great anyway. I used a black and white herringbone looking fabric for the outside and I real cute pink polkadot for the liner. I'll post a picture when I get this film developed.
Thanks for the tutorial!

I'm so glad you all like it!

it is a Wiiiiiiiide bag, I made it on the large tote side of big handbags so that it could feasibly hold a lever arch folder, or a bunch of yarn or just a jacket and the crap I seem to carry on a daily basis.

but

you can always adjust the size, just use a different size circle to get the curve right.

I neglected to mention that it is shoooooort and wiiiiiide. Yours has a much better proportion.
I just had an "aha" moment... I bet i cut too deep of a curve, huh?

possibly... any chance of seeing a pic?

guide for those who follow, if you treat the body of your bag as a rectangle, make that the size you want the body of the bg to be then add the handles on top then it should be a good size
