Lovely clear tutorial @Sheilago - Thank you. :) I'll probably have a go at this (if I can find my sewing things under all the decorating mess). :S

@Lilian  ... Make sure you choose some heavyweight canvas and strapping for handles then ... and be careful when sewing through those thick layers ... I'd hate anything to happen to your machine!

@Kenora , wonderful stuff Darling ... Looking forward to seeing your creation

Great tute @Sheilago. Must have taken ages!  :o
I'd say I'm in but I tend to sleep all week-end now that I'm back to work so I'll do my best.

No rush @wrenkins , this is just for fun!

As to the tutorial, I made the bags, took the photos and wrote the instructions, but I had lots of help from @Iminei and I can personally testify that she has the patience of a saint! :angel: It was like my own personal tutorial tutorial 0_0

I'm in too - maybe just a tote bag, but possibly a makeup bag or two (they do count as bags, don't they?  :o

I will definitely be following @Sheilago's brilliant tutorial too, but I might not be able to squeeze it into this month.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I will join in, not too sure what I will make yet, it might just be a drawstring bag to hold my knitting projects or maybe a new shopping bag.

I have been busy today .... finishing the second curtain and making lots of mistakes on my bag!

Yes really ..  I thought if someone bothers enough to make a tutorial we should try it ... after all what can we lose ???

So the cut off bits from the curtains are going to be made into a storage bag (the 2 piece one, Im not unrealistic) for my bedroom where there are many medications in paper bags which would look oh so much more innocent and appealing in a hand made (and coordinated, once the curtains are up) bag!

Photos incoming in a day or two (after I've claimed Flobears soul   :devil:  )

Am I kicking off with the first photo then ??

Ok Here goes ...

Here are my fabrics ...



Those strips of paisley is all that remains of the fabric I made my curtains from , obviously not enough for the bag at 4 1/2 " each but with a lil imagination .....



and a very blue photo ....



The last one is me cutting the lining (from the curtain lining) which as you can see also has to be pieced!
