I made this GIANT tote from a tutorial I found online.  The website is http://craftywench.typepad.com/knittingwench/2007/07/very-easy-tote-.html I didn't put any pockets in it because it's essentially to put other bags in LOL.  My makeup bag, toiletry bag, straigtening iron, hair dryer etc when we travel.  It really is big and just to give you an idea, I stuffed it with 4 full sized bath towels and there is still a ton of room left.  I used up most of a 1 yard piece of 59" wide fabric for the outside and strap.  It's made with some decor fabric I got at Ikea and a cheap yellow quilting cotton with tiny polka dots for the lining.  I used a cheapy elastic headband and buttonm for the closure.  I just wanted something to keep the top from gaping open if the bag is packed super full.  This bag took about 2 hours to cut and sew.  (I made the chair cushions in the background, too LOL)

The next one is just a drawstring bag I made to use as a makeup bag.  I got the tutorial from http://yarnenvy.blogspot.com/2006/04/how-to-make-my-leetle-bag.html I love it because it stands up on its own and will fit all of my makeup, most bags in the store won't fit all of the stuff that I like to have with me.  I love makeup! The skull fabric is from Joann and the lining is from WalMart-it was only $1.50 per yard.  This bag took about 1 hour to cut and sew.

The inside

Both of these tutorials were super easy and made great bags.  I'd recommend them to anybody.

Wow!  The bag and pouch are amazing!  I'm definitely going to try to make the pouch...thanks for the link   Tongue

I'm moving to a state that actually has IKEAs in a few days...I'm so excited to go fabric shopping there  Grin
