so between pic 2 and 3, you flip the tube inside out before folding it down and sewing those two ends, right?  Just trying to make sure I got it!  I'm gonna have to test this out Smiley

How/where do you insert the strappy handle thing?

I'm thinking at the end of zipper, right sides together, raw edges even...but maybe Alvan did this differently?

That looks so great! Was that hard to sew? Im sure I'd make a mess of that if I were to attempt it.
Its very simple, there is only two things you have to be careful with. Yo must make the fold in picture 5 equal on both sides, otherwise the bag will be skew. And you have to watch the needle when you pass over the zipper so it won't break.

Okay, kudos on a very well-crafted toiletry bag, but I have to give kudos to your dad for being named Ulf.  Apart from sounding cool, it has much more visual appeal than, say, Harold (my dad's name Smiley )

or Herman Sad  (my dad AND little brother's names) lol

Though I made my bro an apron for christmas and put "Herm" on the front, which looks a bit cooler than "Herman" hehe

Ulf is way better than Herman

What a great toilet bag ... so simple, but so effective.   Thanks ever so much for posting the tutorial - definitely one I'll add to my "to do" list.
