your tutorial is great! I made a bag similar to that from a little girls pattern from Simplicity, but I like your dimensions much better! I must have made this bag for every little girl (and big girl  Cheesy ) I know in the last two weeks.

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley

Hi ya'll!  Long time visitor, first time poster... Just wanna say thanx to Jordy for the great tutorial!! I tried it last night and made two cute bags in a jiffy. It wasn't my first time making a bag like this, I usually don"t cut the corners of the bag but I tried it Jordy's way and it was sure less complicated for me to do! Thanx again!!!



p.s sorry about the crappy pictures, my camera is a mess....

I love you for having put this up. In the summer I tried (unsuccessfully) to make a square bottomed bag. It was also my first bag with plastic handles.. I almost want to take it apart now to re-make it using this tutorial!

YEAH JORDY!!! you're the best. i finally had a chance to try this out and it worked great! thank you thank you thank you!
so here is my first "jordy bag".  Wink i made it from a vintage handtowel and washcloth. the lining is from some scrap i had lying around. i didn't have any interfacing so i used a tyvek envelope - worked out fine! there is a velcro closure under the tab.

That is totally adorable! I love the colors. What a great idea to use an old towel. Yay for recycling!

where in chicago can i find tweed for 4 bucks/yd?  i've been tryna find a good fabric shop besides joanns and walmart.  i buy most of my fabric from hawaii (asian and hawaiian), but the solids and tweeds i can't find at a good price.

i don't live in chicago so i can't answer your question directly, but there is another string of posts going where someone made a messanger bag out of an old coat. i do know from having been there that there are lots of good thrift stores in chicago. you could find tweed coats, suits, skirts, etc. and repurpose the fabric.

Hi. I'm new, and French (please don't pay attention to the way I write).
I've been sewing each time I got time to, which means not very often ...
So, here are my 'Jordy bags'

I made them out of my son's old jeans and fabric leftovers from other projects.

I made much more, like pants for my son, skirts for me and my mom etc,  but they don't fit in the scanner (yes, I did the pics with a scanner).
