very cute so if you make one just like it how do you know you'll pick up the correct one? Get in a store somewhere and find you have no money and someone els's drivers license!  (only saying this cause I've done it between me and my sister years ago)  But really  cute design I like all of the ones you've shown us.

I love all three of them! Is there a tutorial you used, or could make?

I thought I was being original when I came up with this idea but turns out there is already a posted tutorial for this bag. The only thing different is that I didn't round my sides I just simply cut 18 inches long and a foot in height and just sewed it like that with points at the end. Then when I pleated I marked it off and inches. I would meet two marks together where there was a mark on the inside where the crease was. Then the fabric would just lay on top of that so there was three layers altogether. I can take a picture of this, it might be a little confusing if you've never pleated. I also didn't do the straps like this but I think this would look better then what I did because I just simply sewed two pieces of fabric, 2 feet long and 3 inches wide and then flipped them inside out and sewed to the top afterwards, so you can see the strap seam on the inside. I like her idea for this though, so I will be attempting that next time. But yeah, so heres the link to the tutorial I never saw until after I made the bag, lol.


Thanks for all the compliments. =)
I'll try and take a better picture of the bag when my sister comes over next.
So yeah, we won't have much chance of getting them mixed up, too many times. lol.
I'd probably do the straps different or something so we could tell them apart.
