It's not the Buttercup bag is it?http://madebyrae.blogspot.com/2009/02/free-buttercup-bag-sewing-pattern.html
It's not triangular, so I guess that's not it.  The top part looked familiar, though...

I want to make this bag:

Anyone know how? I've pretty much got this much:
It's got a long skinny piece going all around it, which seems to get a little fatter at the bottom of the bag.
The sides are sort of a misshapen circle with a cirle cut out, but how to make the pleats... I was thinking of drawing out the front of the bag, cutting it apart where I would want a pleat and spreading it out (so that the final pattern would have extra fabric for the pleat), but how would I make the pleats so bulgy? As opposed to the flat pleats you might get on a skirt for example?

Any help is welcome, I am not good with 3d shapes when they are not some form of square/rectangle/etc Tongue

On a totally stylistic note-- do you guys think it would look good in a microsuede, or is pleather definitely the way to go here?

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

It's not the buttercup pattern, but that's actually very, similar, more so than the Estelle bag. I could definitely work with it though, because the top part is mostly what I'm looking for. Thank you. =)

Well, it is so bulky because it is made of leather or p-leather.  If you use microsuede for that model I think you'll get a "softer" look, but the whole model is pretty so I'd try that as well.  Regarding the making of the pattern, you've described exactly how it is made (cut pieces and spread them to get the final piece).

There's also a very brief explanation here ... http://diyhandbags.wetpaint.com/ .

The pattern that I know of for this kind of project, is called Snap Happy! by Carrie's Fabric and Crafts - I don't think she has a website, but you could probably find an online vendor that sells it. 

I was gifted a bag made with this technique - it's really cute and it does "snap" closed!  We use it in the car for our GPS unit Smiley  My oldest son works on a construction site so I now have a couple of dead tape measures to try the Snap Happy! pattern Smiley

I found this knot handle reversible tote on http://quiltwoman.com/bh-101.aspx. Does anyone know where I can find a free pattern or can someone help me make it. Thanks for the help.
