I used this tutorial http://emmalinebags.blogspot.com/2013/02/free-purse-tutorial-great-granny-bag.html
If you make this bag and you have a directional print you need to cut the pattern in half and add seam allowance or one side of the bag print will be upside down. Thankfully I noticed before I cut my fabric.
It is huge and expandable, if I knit or crochet it would be the perfect big project bag. I will probably never use it I just wanted something to do with the rings I have had forever. I will put it in the future present, swap possibility box. Everything was stash including the vintage thread I used.

Nice job!  The bag is huge--perfect for carrying yarn for making an afghan!

lol I am glad to see that I am not the only one who makes something just to use up something...I laughed because I have those same rings...

so thanks for the link...I know what I am going to be making soon! Grin
