.....

I figured a way to make the inside seams look neater too, I wrote them down so that I can make them faster & faster.

Care to share?  Smiley

I flipped over a 1/4 inch on each of the long sides(right side folded to wrong side of fabric), both fabrics.  I stitched in place.  That way when I'm stitching up the final top & bottom, it makes a clean seam, with no ends fraying Cheesy

I also made sure to pin the long edges when I wanted to sew them, that way, the fabric couldn't shift and throw my seams off.

Thanks for the tip. I presume therefore that you would just stitch over the 1/4 stich line made when closing the final top and bottom seams? Let me know.

Thanks

Yep Smiley  I usually sew half the 1/4 inch, so the stitch line is actually @ 1/8 inch.  It looks very neat/clean when finished  Grin

...right side folded to wrong side of fabric...

So you folded back the right side of fabric, right?  So if the right side is up, you don't see any raw edges?  I'm just trying to picture this in my head.  Do you double fold it to hide all raw edges, or just fold it once?

Yes, just fold once, so when the right side is up, you don't see raw edges Smiley  You don't need to double fold because it's going to be sewn into another seam anyway Cheesy

I want to thank tinybits and all the rest of you who have had input on the pyramid bags.  I think they are so cute and am sharing a couple of photos of my recent creations.  I lead a small vocal ensemble of 12-13 yo girls at church, and I decided to make them each a pyramid bag and stuff it with some cosmetic goodies.

I made 12 of them assembly-line style, and it went very quickly.  It took about 3 hours to make all of them, and the bulk of time was spent on cutting out the fabric and sewing up the turn space at the end.  I added fusible fleece to the inside to give the bags a bit more shape.  Instead of making a handle, I inserted a small loop at the top and used a mini biner clip.   That way, the girls can clip the bag to their backpacks, belt loops, etc.  The finished product was about 6" across each side

Here is my army of pyramid bags:

and here is the inside of one:
