My boyfriend is recently obsessed with South Park, so I'm going to borrow this idea and make some, maybe all of the characters for him. Thanks for the pattern!

This is excellent! I'm very tempted to make a few for my dorm room, just to switch things up a bit!

These are adorable!

I'm a bit of a n00b to the crocheting world, so I kept it rather basic... however, I'm also a college kid, so this is an EXCELLENT way to save some money. Since I have a plethora of free time, I'm going to try the actual more complex version tomorrow, but I'm going to test drive the pair I made tonight as well tomorrow.

I definitely agree on the elastic though...

I'm not sure if anyone else had a bit of a scuffle with this, but I think it may help if you said something about putting the flap and the strap into lining as well at that one part... I didn't know I was supposed to and it made it a bit funky, but I figured it out.

Well, I'm sure I didn't pay anything close to 50 for my field hockey bag but... make sure you add a little pocket on the side handy for MOUTHGUARDS!     It also depends how big you want to make your bag how many sticks you put in it... I always had at least 2 with me.
Thats what they've been turning up around here for. they advertise $20 on the website and then hit you with $50 at the stores. Thus why I'm going to make it myself... plus I've a bit of an idea that I think will be awesome to make.

And of course I'll have a mouthguard pocket.. that goes without saying. Haha. I'm always misplacing mine(I'm on my third this season!) so it'll be brightly colored so I remember to put the guard back in it. I'm quite excited about this... I'll be sure to tell you all how it goes!

A field hockey bag is quite different from other bags I've seen anyplace... and quite over priced, going for about $50.

Its basically a thin, elongated oval with a few very large pockets on the side and a long sturdy strap. At the moment, I'm using a very large shoulder-sling bag made from a sweatshirt, and thats holding up quite well. I'd much rather have something more professional, though. Any hints you could give would be lovely to have!

Well, if you want it to look professional...

I'd suggest a few things. Get some neat stencils, first of all. They can spruce things up, as can stamps and neatly sewn patches. Glitter would work as well, especially on a black bag... but make sure you use some sort of sealer on it afterwards so that the glitter isn't coming off all about the office! That certainly wouldn't strike plus points with your office mates.

An easy bag I made once that required little sewing and even less expense... I'd think it would serve the purpose for fundraising.

Its easy and requires very little sewing. Its incredibly sturdy as well... I've been using mine as a gym bag during the off season, a track bag during spring and winter, and now its even housing my field hockey gear! Its yet to rip or break or even pop a seam, and thats pretty good considering all the crap I stuff in there, including my track spikes!

What You'll Need:
* A sweatshirt or tshirt, preferrably oversized for a bigger bag
* A shoelace or two
* Needle and thread
* Scissors

1) Get an old shirt
2) Turn shirt inside out
3) Cut off the arms and the top of the shoulders
4) Sew the parts that you cut apart together
5) Turn your bag normal side out
6) Cut a small slit in the cuff, near where one of the side seams is. If there are seams on both sides, make holes at each side of the seam so that the shoelace(s) can pass through. Cut another small slit in the corner of the bag. (Detail below)

7) Depending on how long you want the strap, either thread one shoelace through the waist cuff, or tie two together and thread them through.
Cool Finish off your bag by tieing the ends of the shoelace(s) together through the hole in the corner. You can't see it very well, but thats whats going on in this picture
