I made this last night with my Wild Ginger pattern.  I used a linen for the outside and a pink lining.  I think it would have looked better with interfacing.

1.  Cut 2 of each outer material and lining for the sides and 1 of each for the lining

2.  Sew the sides together

3.  Open it out so the seams are opposite each other

4.  Pin the bottom to the sides.  You will need to clip the corners.

{I used felt here}

5.  Sew the bottom being careful to pivot at the corners and then do the exact same thing with the lining.  Make sure to leave a hole in the lining to turn it right side out.

6.  Put the bag inside the lining, RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER


7.  Pin lining to fabric and stitch.  Before you stitch, it is helpful to pin a ribbon to the tip of the handle to help in turning it right side out.


8.  Clip edges carefully


9.  Turn right side out through opening in lining, stitch lining closed, press, and topstitch.

Wow thanks for the tutorial, it's really clear!
I love the color of the bag.  How much time did it take to make it?

Under 2 hours, I think.  I worked on it off and on.

Go to www.wildginger.com and look for the free downloads.  It's called "Wild Things" and you can adjust the patterns to the sizes you want, set up the layout on regular sized printer paper, print it, and tape the pages together.  The instructions are not clear, though.  Wild Things just has accessories, unfortunately.

Does anyone know of any similar free patterns that can be downloaded that are actual clothing?

I would definitely use interfacing and do topstitching.  (I didn't get to that part yet-will do it tongiht)

I love this style of bag, we do quite a few of them.

Here's a tip: if you want the square bottom, like in this tutorial, instead of having to go through the pinning on of the bottom (which can be a pain!) you can always cut the squares out and stitch the bottom up (like in Jordy's tutorial). I have been doing my bags like this for awhile, before I came across craftster...

because this bag is sewn differently than it *appears* when you've cut it out, it can be tricky. But.. it will look like this laying flat... (kind of eiffle tower-ish)

http://img35.photobucket.com/albums/v106/BagLady/bag_cutout.jpg

and then when you get to step 3 (above), you will have the cut outs on each side, and you can stitch across the bottom (leaving a hole in liner to flip) and stitch up your corners, and viola! Simple square bottom bag that ties on top  Wink

Hope that helps somebody!

Wow!  That is great-thank you so much.  I'll try it tonight.

My DH is ready to kill me!!  He says I better sell them or something.  We are getting ready to move and it's making a lot of clutter.  Plus, I don't really want to do anything but sew bags since I found this board!

Thanks for the pattern! I went out today and bought some black suiting material as well as a "The Rock" Cotton panel. The panel has extra printed logos for applique, so I'm think I'll put one on the outside, in the center of the bag. I want my bag to be a good size, with fairly long straps, so I'm going to be doing some tweaking.

There are a couple of things regarding the pattern that I'm not too sure about, being a bit of a sewing novice. Hopefully once I start, I'll be able to figure things out.

Also, Is interfacing completely necessary? I've only made a few purses before, and I really want this one to turn out well.

Advice is really appreciated. If everything works out, I'll be posting some pictures of the finished product  Smiley

Wish me luck!

Okay, what do you mean by "The Rock" cotton panel... I'm imaginining a purse with that wrestler The Rock's face on it!  Grin

Yes, I'm referring to the wrestler  Grin

The panel is for a pillow I believe, the appliques are of this logo:

I have some iron on transfer inkjet computer sheets that I may use to put a photo on the bag.  Wink
