My vet is actually a man but his sister Kayla is the office manager and I just love the whole family. I am taking my 9 year old Dachshund to him today because he chipped a tooth (old codger).....anyways, thought I would take her a little XMas gift. Hope you can see the fabric well......too cute, little animal doctors. Appropriate huh?

Have you posted a tutorial for your bags?  I love the shape and size of them!

I am selling my crafty things to raise some money to go towards my adoption costs!

That is so cute!  I love blackbottomed bags like that.  I second the call for a tute if you haven't posted one, or a link to one if you have.  (I'm just so darned lazy Grin)

Hi ladies, I hate to say it but I dont have a pattern even that I used for these. I can give you general directions, but that is about it.


My basic (before sewing) size is 14x12 with a 2 inch cutaway at bottom for the square bottom.
To make the black (or whatever you want) bottom just form a pattern and cut the top 2/3rds off to make the bottom and a seperate top. Cut enough to leave a quarter inch seem allowance or whatever allowance you are used to.

After cutting all pieces, fuse interfacing to wrong side of outer fabric. Sew together the bottom of outer fabric with the right sides together. Sew sides then at corners fold together and sew to form square bottom. I double stitch for reinforcement.
Repeat above (except interfacing) for the lining. If you like you can make interior pockets at this time. Make sure you sew pockets in before sewing lining together  Wink
Turn outer fabric right side out and press well. Do not turn lining. Press lining well. Turn a 1/2 inch at the tops of both lining and outer. Outer will turn inward, lining will turn outward. Press well.  Either make handles out of a contrasting fabric or use webbing. I prefer the webbing as I am too lazy to make them....haha. Pin between the outer and lining and sew taking care to reinforce at the handles.

Sorry this is horrible direction........it is soooo easy, it is hard to explain. If that makes sense.
