I had trouble fitting all of my roller derby stuff into my bag, so I made a new one! I had all the materials lying around, so why not?

Here's what you'll need:

a ruler or something long and straight and a measuring tape
chalk or something to draw on the fabric
110 cm of 120 cm wide fabric plus fabric for the straps, or 145cm wide fabric 110 cm and you'll get a few quilt pieces left over...
scissors
needle and thread
sewing machine
 
Here's the video tutorial: https://youtu.be/S1oBW28_qkU

Start by measuring these pieces onto a fabric:



Cut the pieces out and then either serge the edges if you have a serger or use a zig zag stitch to make the edges neat.

Then sew the pocket pieces like shown:



 

After that, take the two longest pieces and attach the zipper.



 

When you have the top part sewn together, attach the pockets that will be at the ends of the bag. Sew them from the outer edges, and leave the previously finished top edge open, so it will become a real pocket.  



After that, add the side pockets to the larger piece. Make the straps and use them to attach the pockets.



After that the two pieces are ready to be sewn together. Remember to put your stitch length low, I had mine on the setting "2". This way the bag is less likely to fall apart Grin



Remember to leave the zipper open. After you have pinned the pieces together by their edges, just sew the bag and turn it inside out - or right side out Wink Then you'll have a really nice, big bag for all your stuff! Smiley

Awesome! Thanks for sharing your process! I would have looked for a tute like this rather than making my own. Excellent work.
