I just made a very similar bag to this that came from a baby craft book my mom bought.  It's actually a diaper bag pattern and a little shorter and squattier than this bag, but the principal is the same, even with the magnetic snaps on the gusset to make the bag close up and expand.  I know she got the book at a local quilt shop in my town, but you may be able to find it online or at your own favorite quilt shop.

Here's the link to the book on Amazon.com (although it's not available to order from them):  http://www.amazon.com/Boutique-Baby-Karen-Roossien/dp/1883250552/ref=sr_1_20/002-4069752-2351240?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1192631218&sr=1-20
Maybe you could at least get the author's name and google it to see what you can find.  Just a thought!

I plan to post the picture of the diaper bag I made this week.

It kinda looks similar to the "all-day tote" in Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing Book.  Maybe you can check that out from the local library and take a look.  The only difference is that that one doesn't have the same pockets on the side, but you could change that.  Why won't Amy Butler sell her patterns?

Well, I see that there are already links to tutorials (didn't read pages 2 & 3 til now) so I'll post this anyway.  I guess maybe it'll help someone learn how to dissect a piece and learn to make a pattern Smiley

Love seeing everyones Sanibels Wink. Been drooling over this bag for months.  I sure would love to make one but not sure I am capable (started sewing a few months ago) of making my own pattern and putting a purse like this together..yet. I found this pattern today and was wondering if any of you think it would be easy to turn this bag (top quilted duffle) into a Sanibel. Its suppose to be a duffle bag but I don't see why you couldn't add rectangle sides & bottom (instead of circles), the height and width or the same as the Sanibel. Hobby Lobby has all its Simplicity patterns for 99 cents Grin. Do you think its doable?
~~Thanks, Mary

I made mine.  It took just about 2 yards of 60" wide fabric and about 30  minutes.  It measures just 1/2 smaller in width than the original.

How on earth did you manage to make this in about 30 minutes hun?  It took me over 2 hours last night just to cut the pattern out in cardboard, and then cut the fabric out! lol

Now today, I'll be sewing it together and seeing if I did the dimensions of the pattern pieces all ok....I doubt it though, as I suck at copying pattern pieces and sizes!

I didn't bother making a pattern just measurements to be cut with a rotary cutter with my trusty self healing mat and a rotary ruler

WILL SWAP for CLOTH diapers.........

Did you contact Amy Butler Design to ask if they plan to publish this pattern perhaps after the bag style goes out of production?  I'm also totally lusting over the Sweet Life Bags....particularly the Ashbury and have looked everywhere for a pattern that comes close.  It is not to be found.  Because I have a huge AB fabric stash at home, I don't really want to buy the bag when I can personalize it with my fave fabrics from her collection. 

Good luck finding what you're looking for.  Let me know if you come across a pattern that works!

I don't know if this pattern helps as it looks very similar...just is a lot taller, how length looks fine.


I made a bag from this pattern, & will take a photo tomorrow when there's some sun.  Instructions are badly written, but gives you pieces that you need.  if you have any questions, let me know!
