Hi folks.  I made this for the Star Wars swap, but it was pretty simple, so I thought I would share. 


Gauge: About 3 sts. per inch.  Row gauge is not important. 
Yarn: Black Red Heart Super Saver, less than a ball. 
Needles: US 13
Notions, etc: Yarn needle, black sewing thread and needle, 1 sheet (like the craft store rectangle size) of burgundy/red felt, 1 sheet black felt, glue gun and glue.

The yarn is used doubled, so it's better to roll two separate balls of the yarn beforehand. 

Body of the bag:
Cast on thirty stitches, using two strands of yarn.  Knit in stockingnet stitch until, when you fold the piece in half, the bag is about as tall as you want it.  Then knit for about three or four more inches. 

Handles (make two):
Cast on ten stitches, with two strands of yarn.  Knit in stockingnet stitch until handle is desired length. 

Assembly:
Fold the bag piece in half and begin sewing up one side seam starting from the top opening (not the bottom corner).  When you get close to the corner, pinch it in like this:
.
Continue sewing the seam, pinching in the corner as shown. 

Fold the piece of black felt in half, and test it inside the bag (this is the lining).  Trim off the excess, and sew the sides of the felt to make a rectangular pocket.  I did not pinch in the corners of the lining, but I guess you could.  Sew in the lining.  (See here http://lizknitz.typepad.com/patterns/2005/05/lining_tutorial.html for a better tutorial on lining.)

Cut a three inch wide strip of red felt that goes around the lip of the bag.  If the rectangle is not long enough to cut such a piece, you may have to cut two, one for each side, and sew them together.  (Or get a larger piece of felt.)  Hot glue this down as an edging. 

Cut out a rebel symbol from the red felt and hot glue down.  (I used the template here http://www.starwars.com/kids/activity/crafts/f20050211/.) 

Sew on the handles.  They will stretch with use, which you can avoid if you line them. 

Enjoy Grin

Two strands means that you literally hold two pieces of yarn together and use them as one.  That's why I recommend having two balls of the yarn before you start.

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.
