At last, I understand how to do corners in a bag! I had a pattern that had you sew across these triangles in the corners. It looked great if you did it right but it was a pain in the neck to get them lined up right and to make them the same size.

This makes sense. I can do this.

Thank you.     Thank you.     Thank you.

Jesus loves me, this I know.

so i decided to make a jordy bag for my mom for mother's day. and it turned out great! i have to agree with everyone who has complimented jordy on such a great tutorial! thanks, jordy! i made a few bags from a mccalls pattern before, but yours was easier, and resulted in a nicer bag! so here's my sacrifice to the jordy altar:

p.s. credit goes to jinxy for the pretty flower applique that i put on this bag. i received it from her in the recent $5 swap and thought it would be the perfect addition to a mother's day bag.

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

these instructions were awesome. i'm totally lame when it comes to sewing, but i was able to churn out this project in just a few hours! i used a soft brown courdoroy for the outside, with a light blue cotton lining. and now i have this small and very cool bag! thanks!

 Cheesy Finally finished my first Jordy bag yesterday.  I lengthend the strap and enlarged the bag a bit.  So as soon as I put the picture on my website I will post it.  Thank you JOrdy for the informative tutorial.

I wish I got paid to make all this wondeful stuff....uh...nevermind, then it would be like a job.  EEWWW!

I had the idea of installing a zipper that would run to the right side seam and across the bottom of this bag (long story as to why) any ideas on how to do this so the bag would open like a book? thanks...oh and how would I install a zipper for my idea?

I had to register just to post about how easy and wonderful this bag is. I haven't sewn anything in a year and this was so simple thanks to the great tutorial. I just have one question, in everyone's pics the bags look so stiff and undroopy, my bag is quite droopy. I don't understand why it came out this way. I used interfacing! If anyone has any stiffen-up-bag hints, I would be really greatful.
