I saw some rag bags this spring while on a holiday and I came home and got to work.  I used corduroy on the outside, and cotton prints on the inside.



The brown bag is my favorite, it's just so stinkin' cute!



The inside is all pink and green - my 5 year old daughter adores it.



The green one...



And the inside.

After crusin' through this forum, I'm inspired to try some more complex bags - hopefully I'll be able to post something again soon...

Thanks for looking!

Recently 'discovered' sewing machines and now I am addicted. I have been making clothes and bags and I want to try to make poppet sometime soon.

Thanks!  I actually didn't know about craftster.org back when I was looking for a tutorial, so I found it on youtube - it's here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIz-whiBMww  The tutorial talks about cutting the fabric with a die cutting tool, but you can just use 5" squares instead (the die adds scalloped edges - so you could use a pinking blade for the same effect).

Anyway, the tutorial also shows how I made the handles and the closure.  Everything I did is from this tute.  However, I did stumble upon a similar tute here on crafster - it's here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198049.0, but it doesn't have the same closure.

Thanks again & happy sewing!

Thanks so much for the links. It landed on my sewing list for the upcoming winter season Smiley

You'll be able to make a bunch - this bag, from cutting to finished bag takes about 2-1/2 hours.  Happy sewing!!
