Toiletbag for my father

My fathers toiletbag is a total wreck so I thought it would make a perfect Chrismas present. I have used fake skin fabric and viledon (to make it hard) for the outside and some type of thin plastic on the inside. I put a littel machineembroidery on the outside with his name on the outside to make it more personal. He likes it simple and so it is.

Really great job  Smiley

If you don't mind my asking -- what are the dimensions of the bag and did you use one of the tuts here, or was it your own pattern?  If it was your own, would you care to give your own tut?  I have recently been working on these bags, but I like your style alot better than the ones I've made. 

I'm sure your father will love this!  Grin

It's a very simple patter that I have seen somewhere on a Swedish page. Here is a simple tutorial I have drawn:


This is what you need. The measurements are what I used for this bag, you can have almost any measurements you want.


Place the zipper between the fabric and stitch close to the zipper.


Turn it inside out and stich down along the zipper. You now have a tube.


Make a strap, fold a piece of fabric as in the picture. You decide how wide and long it should be.


Fold the strap and place it on the rightside over the zipper. Pin or make some stitches to hold on place.


Turn the tube inside out. Fold as shown on the picture (leave the zipper open). Make sure it's equal on both sides of the zipper. Stitch the edges, the red dotted line.


Turn the bag to the right side and poke the corners. Voila!

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?
