These little bags are so addictive.  I have made a ton of them.  I use them to organize my glove box, hold cosmetics, take my lunch to work, sort phone and iPod chargers, you name it.  Here are a few that I have made:

A close up of one (it's made from two bandanas):

What it looks like when partially open:

All the stuff it can hold:

A buried treasure one with a matching tissue holder:

The one I use for my lunch uses Tinkerbell fabric - it is really cute, but it needs a bath, so I didn't want to take a photograph when it wasn't all clean and pretty. . .

These are so cool!  Are you going to show us how they are made?  I'd love to have a dozen hanging around to use like you do.

I found this post that has a link to a tutorial. It also has a tip about making the pocket.

Too cool!  I totally need to look up that tutorial and see if it's something I think I could make . . . (adding to the already very long list of to-do projects!)

The tutorial looks very easy! And, if you use a bandanna, or some other double-sided fabric, you have even less sewing to do! I haven't made one yet, but I have some free time this weekend, and an abundance of fabric...

The bandana bag measures 6 1/2" x 8" x 2 1/2".  The other bags vary. 

The instructions I used are very similar to the ones craftADDchick flagged, but mine included a boxed bottom.  Sorry I didn't get back to ya' sooner, but I was out of town, and had no (gasp) computer access.   
 
And a big thank you to craftADDchick for finding a tute!

You're welcome! I still haven't made one, but with the rainy icky weather, today could be the day!

A boxed bottom...hmmmm... If you're using 2 layers, do you box the bottom before you stitch them together, or after? I'm guessing that if you want it reversible (assuming you can make it reversible), you box it beforehand, and if not, you can box it afterwards.
