I want to make a slouchy bag that goes across your shoulder.

I did some ideas or possibly a pattern or tutorial to make it. I see lots of people using them but i know i could probably make one instead.

Any tips are appreciated and i will try to get a picture of what i mean.

EDIT: I know that there are some tutorials on here but i either cant see the pictures or they are broken, thus me asking.  Grin

If you wanted it to go over your shoulder, you could just make the bag as if you're making a tote, and just elongate the strap.  I made something similar, but my strap was shorter.  The bag slouched a bit and ended up looking more like a hobo bag.  If you didn't want the hobo bag look, you could probably add interfacing or something on the bottom to stabilize it.

What'd be really cool-and simple-is if you added a belt buckle at the top with belt holes so you can adjust it.  Ooh!  I think I have an idea for a new bag now!  ^_^

I made this bag but I put the seam on the ends.  I think it came out pretty good.  If you like this bag and want help figuring out how to fold it so the seams are on the ends rather than the middle, let me know.
Here's a link to the bag I made recently: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253491.msg2823937#msg2823937
