...Yo must make the fold in picture 5 equal on both sides, otherwise the bag will be skew...

So true, so true.  I thought mine was even, but it must have been ever so slightly off.  Really should have practiced on something other than Amy Butler fabric!  Oh well, i guess I get to keep this one for myself!

Thanks SO MUCH for the tute!

Thanks everyone!

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

 Grin I think it also depends where you live. Ulf is not a very popular name here in Sweden right now, but I think it will be in a couple of years Smiley And Harold or Herman can look very cool whit the right font. And the font I used for Ulf makes both of them look great I think, look here:

I'm sure you can!

Can't you just get rid of the two last seams and make them again? It's to bad to waist good looking fabric. And it probably don't look half as bad as you think. Wink

I suppose I could, but I also went so far as to sew down the pleats on the ends, then I sewed a pintuck edge onto each corner along the length (running the same length as the zipper).  So it would put a lot of miles on my seam ripper!  Smiley  The skew-ed-ness wasn't so obvious until I did these extra steps.  I don't mind keeping this one for myself.  Smiley

That puts the hole thing in a different light, better to keep it, then Smiley

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I tried to make one yesterday.  It came out ok.  It's not stiff enough to stand up properly.  I used vinyl for the outer fabric and a cotton for the inside.  I think I'll try a heavy interfacing for the lining next time. The only thing I'm worried about is my machine not being able to sew through too many heavy fabrics, it barely made it with this one.  Thanks again!

I hold my thumbs (A Swedish expresion thats means the same thing that you mean when you say " cross one's fingers") that you make it through all the layers Smiley
