I have seen these Origami bags on here and really liked them. After podering and mulling over the whole thing, I decided to make one for a swap.  Here is the finished bag.  The outside fabric is a heavy duty uhpostery type stuff and the liner is a lightweight cotton.  A bit mismatched and a challenge to sew...but I managed to wrangle it into some resemblance of a bag.  I boxed the corners at the bottom so it would sit flat.  This took a lot of fabric.  I used 36"x36" square of each fabric and it ended up being about 12x12" finished.

I had been looking at these bags for a while and I pondered some 3 different directions.  I even made a paper one jsut so I could get it right in my head how this all works.  When I finally made this one it was pretty easy.  The fabric choice made it tough to sew through but with a lighter weight fabric it would be very easy.  The actual sewing was only 7-8 straight seams!
