The pattern was easy, and free.  Wink. I'm sure you could pull it off Jillybeans.

 I found this free pattern on line and decided to try it.
http://fabricmutt.blogspot.com/2014/01/ellie-travel-case-tutorial.html
 Here's what I came up with.

 I made two bags for the Summer Games. The pattern was really good and clear. The zipper was a little tricky due to the thickness and the curves, just go slow and you'll be fine if you decide to attempt it. It was the first time I had done straps like this too. I pinned the edge of the fabric down until I had my needle firmly in it to keep it from unfolding.

 To help it go faster I made them at the same time.

 I got lots of help setting the zippers in. That's Venkman inspecting them. I call him quality control.,
 And here is a pic of getting the second side of the zipper. Sorry about the cat butt, he is always right next to me.
 I don't recommend doing the zipper with the bit of linen showing. I did both ways and the one with the linen showing had a weird pucker to it.
 Here's the first one I finished. I have had this abstract bird fabric in my stash forever and thought it would work well with this project.

 The inside is a blue polka dot. I liked that the bird showed on top too.

 For the second one I bought this fabric when I got the linen. I thought it was really pretty. A classy pretty instead of the normal flashier stuff I do. Cheesy Front & back.  
],.
 The inside was a soft yellow-ish beige with white polka dots.

 These pics are just for size reference and to show off my beautiful Dahlia.

 Thanks for checking them out!

 and this my friends is why people learn to sew. To make completely awesome and amazing outfits that would otherwise cost a fortune if you could ever find it.
 Amazing job. Can't believe you made up the pattern! Great fit and fabric placement too!

Thanks everyone! I like the one with the lights. He's why I decided to try my hand at Photoshopping them so I could do the little light halos.  Cheesy
