Did you use a pattern for the bag itself?  This is a great size and design, I'd love to make something similar (except for stitchers bwahahaha!).

So adorable, I love everything about this Smiley

Thanks Smiley I didn't use a pattern for this. It was actually pretty simple to do, but kind of hard to describe. Maybe I can sketch it out and post later.

Also, for those that love the fabric, it is Alexander Henry's Paseo de los Muertos from the Skulldiggery collection: http://www.ahfabrics.com/products.php?cat_id=510
It is part of the current collection and is widely available (so no need to kill for it, just buy some!)   Wink

Here is a quick tutorial on how I made the tote with the side panels. The front and back panels were about 18" wide by 16" tall, and the side panels were abut 5"x16".

Note that you will lose some height because part of your side panels will become the bottom of the bag, so cut the panels taller than you want the finished bag to be. If you want to calculate it, it depends on how wide your side panels are-your bag will be shorter by half the width of your side panels. Example-if your side panels are 4 inches wide, your bag will be 2 inches shorter than the pieces you cut. (plus seam allowances)

I hope that makes sense??
