I found all the fabric I used for this bag at the thrift store for less than $1.50. I was so excited  Cheesy

[b]TUTORIAL:[/b]

Step 1.

This is a freehanded pattern. Just play around with it until you get the size that you like. You will need to cut more fabric later for the straps and ties, but we will get to that.

Step 2.

You have to make a hem all the way across the top of all four pieces. This gets rid of the raw edge once you're done with everything.


Step 3.

Take both pieces of the outside fabric and put them together with the right sides facing eachother and stitch where the white dotted lines are. Do the same with your inside fabric.


Once you're done sewing around the edges, turn right side out. Now you can see the shape of your bag.


Step 4.

Cut the fabric for your strap. The width should be the with of the tab on your outside fabric once it is turned right side out.


This pic just shows the size of your straps compared to the size of a pair of scissors. I didn't give a measurement, because its up to you and how you think you would like it. But, you dont have to make them long because the bag slouches, which makes the whole thing longer (just see finished pic at the top).


Step 5.
I forgot to take a pic of step five, but its simple. Just pin the straps to the tabs on your bag and sew them across.


Step 6.

Cut two small strips of fabric. These will be used for the ties for the closure of the bag.


Pin the little ties to the middle of each side. I don't really see a need to bind them first, but you can if it makes you feel better =)


Step 7.
Just put your lining inside of your bag so far, and sew all the way around the top. Just make sure you take your straight pins out when you get to your ties.

I hope everyone understood my tutorial. I tried to make it as easy to understand as possible. Its my first tute, so im sorry if its a little confusing.
