Okay, inquiring minds want to know (or at least I do):  is the lining cut after the pleating (I suspect so), and is it "wrong sides together, then stitch around the top" (please say yes; that's the easy way IMO!)?

that's the way I always do it. and I agree, it is the easier way! (is there another way?) hehe.

i was going to make this bag this week for a friend and i was wondering if it is possible to make it out of a lightweight canvas material.  i want for it to be sturdy, but i also want to be able to make pleats.  i've never tried to make pleats out of canvas, so i wasn't sure if it would work.  any suggestions?

Here are the 2 I made using your wonderful; pattern! I added lining and a lil' pocket in each.(I also aparently don't believe in ironing... so they are a bit crinkled.)  They are both for 2 friends for their x-mas presents. The directions were super easy to follow, thanks for a great bag!

and lining:

What a great tute! I love all the bags! It's amazing how the same basic pattern can turn out so many variations in size, band width, poofiness, etc.

Speaking of which, I made one myself! You can see it <a href="http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=150357.0">here</a>.

here's mine! next time id do it with a thicker fabric or line it but i had this fabric to use up. im awful at sewing so this actually turned out well for me.



the patch on it reads "that which fuels our fires leaves ashes in our hearts" and has a girl holding a crowbar!
