I followed the skipping bag tutorial and here's what I came up with:

Please excuse the paint on the floor

Lining:

Detail of the exterior (the flash on my camera washed it out a bit):

The exterior is made of this really cool vinyl (yay for washable/wipeable!) with a nice bright red satin lining.  I'm thinking about adding a snap or something to keep the bag closed.  I haven't sewn the opening in the lining yet either because I'm thinking about sliding in some sort of cardboard insert to keep the bottom of the bag flat.  Hmmm, options.

What do you kids think?

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

Hmm, that's weird.  I can see them.  Anyone else having trouble?

Starlene:  thanks for the compliment!

I love your bag!  I make the "skipping bag" for myself all the time, but yours came out with a slightly different shape that I really like.  What are the dimensions of the bag, and what did you use to get the rounded edges at the top?

Wow, thanks everybody!

thingwraith:  thanks for the compliments!  The finished dimensions are 11 x 16 (not counting the handle).  For the curved top, I just followed the tutorial on here for the skipping bag and used a plate for the rounded shape where the handle meets the top of the bag.

Ahh, that explains it.  I used a CD spindle to get the rounded edges on mine, and the plate probably produces a more gradual curve.  Thanks for clueing me in, hehe Cheesy

Sure, no problem.  Do you have any of your bags posted?
