Here's a Jordy I just made.  The pics are kinda dark, I hope you can get the idea.  The bag is dark brown.  I added two straps just to make it a bit different.

Greg, thanks for your detailed instructions Smiley

Treasure Cat, love the use of the two handles. Very good! What is the flower on the front of the bag, is it stencilled or what?

Aaurora: The flower is kinda "embroidered" with some yarn I had laying around.  Looks pretty neat, cause it isn't as finished looking as it would be had I used embroidery floss.

This is fantabulous!!  I think this would also make a stylish diaper bag for hip moms.  But compartments are essential for it to be transformed to a hip diaper bag.  Do you have suggestions how to make the compartments?  (like pockets, zippers, and stuff??)

I have made several Jordy bags since finding this tutorial (I'll prove it when I get some pics!) but I can't get my straps to look good.  They always have an exposed edge that frays and looks icky.
I need to get some stiffer interfacing, too.  Can anyone tell me what kind seems to work the best?
All these bags look so cool.  Every time I check this site, I'm inspired to try something different with my bags!
THANKS!

I feel your pain, mnwild- I find straps difficult too- they're never very even and there's always a little bit showing- sometimes I just use something creative - like wide twill tape (like a thick ribbon) or webbing (like seatbelt stuff) to get around the whole turning them inside out etc- keep in mind that the stiffer the interfacing you use in the handles, the harder those little buggers are going to be to turn- especially if your handles are thin and long.  good luck.

My handles usually turn out fine. Make sure you sew a little bit away from the edge when you are attaching the handles and they should be fine. I use Medium interfacing for my purses..

Here are a couple of my Jordy bags, made from quilted Chinese polyester fabric.
The handles were really tough to turn inside out because the fabric is quite thick, but it was worth the sore fingers in the end!

Thanks for the great pattern, Jordy!

Weltanschauung, looking at Jordys tutorial, you don't need to turn the handles inside out. I use her handle tutorial to the T and they always turn out great, with no inside out stress  Grin

I love that fabric Cheesy

Does anyone happen to have the tutorial saved/cached offline somewhere? The pics are all listing as photobucket bandwith exceeded and I'm kicking myself for not pulling the instructions off for myself!
Help is appreciated Cheesy
Thanks a bunch
Stephanie
