    I love it! They are very cute. I'm going to make these for family and friends and also for our guild's boutique. Thanks so much for your time in teaching us. You did a perfect job.

    THANK YOU! That is neat. Can't wait to try it.

    PS not only is it a great idea, the tut is a very good explanation of what could be a very confusing process.

    Thanks again.

    Hey I'm quoting myself!
    I made Grandma's bag. Instead of sewing together 2 squares I used one large cloth napkin. I had picked up a package of 2 for $2 in the clearance at WalMart. Worked great. They were 19" square so just slightly larger than what np3 called for. I used some cording I had for the drawstring and sewed snaps and buttons on the pocket flaps. I think grandma will approve.
    As I was finishing this up I remember years ago making a bag similar to this out of much larger square of fabric! I still have it and use it now and then. It is a lot like a messenger bag.
    Thanks again np3!
