had to order it online... no sushi fabric I could find locally!  Sad

but, it's called Chopsticks Please and it's a Robert Kaufman fabric.  I'm sure you can find it- just google Robert Kaufman and Sushi or Chopsticks.  it's darn funny =)

good luck!

Great bag and the tutorial instructions look so clear - definitely one for my "to do" list.

Thanks

I made this bag for a friends as her x-mas present. She is from Maryland, hence the crabs. I call it her "Maryland is Better than California" bag or "I went to Crew and all I got were crabs" bag. (both inside jokes. Rowers may get the second one) Mine is not reversable though, so the other side just became lining, and I sewed ribbon onto the handles because she is an eastcoast girl.


I really like this bag... I may have to make one for myself once I am done with all this holiday junk and I get my hands on some good fabric.

I love this!  I modified the pattern a bit, and made mine a lot taller and thinner- it's about the right size for a binder to fit in upright.  It was a lot of work, but very worth it in my opinion.  I may use it for my knitting, or for rehearsals and short days of school (it's not quite big enough for all my stuff)

being modelled by my bathroom doornob and some of my school stuff:

side 1


side 2


close up of fabric, pocket, and my wonky topstiching.

very imperfect- the red side has some puckery bits, my topstiching is wobbly, and I made the pockets far too short, but I still love it!  I also had to switch thread colors- darker red to lighter red, midway through because I ran out!  It's only really noticable in one spot though

The red fabric was some cotton from a swap and the blue was an old sheet plus interfacing, so it's really quite sturdy. 

I plan on making another variant of this bag... possibly not reversable, but I love the straps , so I'll definitely keep those how they are!

This is an awesome bag, another wish list item for me, and a to-do on the never ending list! ^__^

The fabric on all the various versions just make this more enjoyable and so inspiring! <3
