My kitty loves paper bags so I thought this would be a good idea.

I just kind of made it up as I went along.  The bag itself wasn't too difficult for me, rather the difficulty I had was pushing layers of cellophane through my sewing machine.  The feeder thingy wouldn't grip on it, and it kept ripping along the stitching.

Anywhoo, about 2 hours and a bit of cursing later, Argyle didn't even want to play with it.

I hate to sound dense but I am going to ask this anyway - the crinkly bag here - does it have a bottom or is it just a top and bottom?
I am thinking of putting an extra layer of fabric in it on top of the celephane so that it doesn't tear when going through the machine..

but I have no clue as to what on earth a jordy bag is.  I am lost.  I am pretty new to sewing and really want to make this for someone that has it on her wist list..

Can anyone help me understand how to make one of these?

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I cannot answer your question about crinkle bag construction, but the Jordy Bag Tutorials are in the purses board.  Some day I need to make one of them  Wink

My cat is wayyyy to low maintenance for ANY of the things anyone mentions for cats. It's sad! I wanna make crafty things for my little man but all he ever wants is tinfoil balls and cardboard boxes! haha.

Haha! It's true... we spend so much effort for our kitties when sometimes they're just happy to play with a fallen leaf  Cheesy I eat your crinkle bag version though, it looks really nice! I know my kitty just looooves to pounce on unsuspecting "victims" when it's crawling under a blanket, so you might want to initially put your hand in the bag and gently scratch from the inside or rustle around in there. She might be interested and pounce on your hand from the outside and realize, "Hey!! What's that enticing sound? What's inside this thing?!"
