Thank you so much kellebelle! I was just starting to make my pattern now, and I had just got to the angle part, so I came here to check if my question had been answered! and Voila! It is.
Thanks so much you guys!

rr, I'm not finished with the one I made for myself yet but my daughter has used and abused hers.  She takes it everywhere with an assortment of her people (Little People), assorted stuffed animals, crayons, and a Dora doll usually stuffed inside.  I have packed it with snacks and juice boxes for trips to the park.  It is holding up very well.  I didn't use particularly stiff interfacing though.  I'd have to say it's medium weight.

Here's the sha sha I made today. You can't tell in this picture, but there is a green pocket on the inside.


The lighting's a little funny; the button actually matches the light green fabric.

I'll be making more of these soon!

Wow that one's really good! Great job! I finished the main body on mine (pretty fast, too!), and have pinned the lining and outside together at the top and everything. But I have just been procrastinating for a while, so I guess I'll finish it soon. I'm so lazy...

I wanted to address the angle question. Although a 90 degree angle works fine, it will give the bottom of the bag a slightly rounded appearance. if you angle it up slightly, it will produce a squarer/flatter bottom. Has anyone else found this. I took mine up about 1 cm from the 90 degree line.
Does that make sense?

haahaha.. I've never had so much fun drawing lines and such.. my husband has a "geek box" that I have never paid attention to... I decide that I am gonna draw this thing out.. the geek box has drawing tools in it..

I have  discovered that a rolling ruler is the most amazing thing I have ever used in my life!  No jagged-off balanced- crooked lines...

so thank you for the wonderful pattern and thank you for making me  realize the value of the geek box.

Yep, I also found out that if you angle it up too much the corners refuse to lie nicely and are really hard to iron flat.

I made one for a holiday gift last weekend.  I didn't have paper big enough to draw the pattern on, so I opened up a paper grocery bag and it worked perfectly.  I had problems with the angle issue, and none of the four flappy things came out the same size on the pattern.  I found that if you just match them up when you're pinning, though, and trim the excess, it will be fine.  As long as you get the length measurements right, slight variations in the angle don't seem to make much difference.  Although I've only made the one bag, so it could have been a fluke that it turned out as well as it did!





The lining came out a little puckered, and I didn't put a closure on it, but I think that for my first sewn bag it looks nice!  Thank you, Buglake, for such an awesome pattern and tutorial!

Here's a little pattern hint if you want the sides to all come out the same size: I made my pattern out of a newspaper. It was folded twice, the way newspapers are, and I only drew one fourth of the pattern on, and then cut it out. When unfolded, everything lines up, because they were all cut at the same time.

(I hope that makes some sort of sense!)
