Just seeing your reply from back in March Undecided, sorry it took me so long to say thanks. Love the tips you gave on how to do the sides! I will check out that tutorial too. One day I will get around to doing one of these bags, we are in the process of building a house so I haven't had much time to sew (with work and chasing my 15mo around Grin). Thanks for you help!!!!!

Hi everyone,

I just made another one of these today, and I've found something out, by trialling it on todays' effort....after you've sewn the bag and it's looking like the first of my pics, see how the bottom doesn't look right?  and is all floppy-ish, well to stop that, and make the bag stand up without a bottom insert or heaps of interfacing, what I did, was topstitch right up against the edge around the bottom of the bag.

I'll get the bag and take a pic and load it in this post so you can see what I mean.  If my camera behaves itself and takes a pic you can see.

I've also changed around the pockets a bit, I no longer put the end pockets on the outside, but put them on the inside and in the pink one I made today, I added an extra divided/pleated inner pocket, so all up it has ten pockets - 6 outside and 4 inside.

Let me know what you think.  As you can see, even on an office chair, it stands up quite good.

And here's a close up of how close to the edge I stitched.

I also love this style of bag. I attempted to make one today. I just tried to post pictures of the bags I made and since I am so new it said I needed to post ten times...
