Thanks for the tutorial.  I've made these before, but unlined, using a pattern from the Nancy's Notions website. 

My biggest problem was step 6 - sewing across the folded zipper.  I didn't break the needle on my machine - I broke my machine!  Oh well, it was a good excuse to buy another.

I live in suburban Detroit, and the other day I was trawling a local Value Village when I saw two different pyramid bags on the purse rack. I didn't open them, but they looked home-made and it made me think of this thread and wonder whether it was a Craftster member who ditched them!

i did mine too! it ended up bigger than i thought and i completely messed up with the handle so that it finished INSIDE the bag instead of outside Cry but it is really easy and i think with some practice they might end up looking actually nice... this one is some sofa uphosltery fabric lined with linen-lice fabric. i plan on a make-up case one lined with something vinyl-like

thanks for all the tutes inside this post! they are really helpful for newbies (even though i sew the zipper twice on the wrong side and had to unsew it all Tongue

i am so proud of doing things myself, even though they are a billion years away from all your gorgeous ones Grin

I really want one!  I am going to have to work on those sewing skills.

I've made a few of these bags and they were really fun to make. They were also quite simple too.  Grin
I'm very thankful for the tutorial.

You can see the insides in these two pics:

I just made the green one; I realized that I needed something to put my bathroom stuff in when I visited my boyfriend's house, and this was simple to do and fast to make.

I'm definately going to make more of these in the future.

Woo-hoo!  I am so glad that I stumbled upon this tute.  I have been wanting to make one of these binky holders:
but could not wrap my head around how to sew it.  It turns out it is just a smaller version of this bag.  Now I have one:

I am going to make another, this was my trial one.  I used up some leftover squares from an old quilt.

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

I tried it out and it was great! Here is my version of the bag. It's meant to be a binky bag.

Hi; This is also known as a humbug bag.  I forget where on the internet I saw it, but I had seen it before.  The name "Humbug Bag" comes from the candies that are/were available in England, which are called Humbugs.  They were the same odd shape.
