Default ANYONE REMEMBER ? Daffoli Bag... small 3 sided pyramid bag

Does anyone remember in the late 1990s probably, a book on fabric-origami type of things, it had a little bag made from a 60-degree triangle, (facing and lining) with the 3 corners brought to a pyramid top, sewn up the 3 side seams, 3/4 of the way, and the three tips turned down on the outside and tacked with thread or button. it made a cute llittle pyramid bag with triangle opening at its top, for candies and whatnots.

A couple times this year i have worn out google with every search imaginable, and cant find it. Its possible it was an *outside of the U.S.* published book, came and went before the internet ever really got going in the U.S. Cute little bag. The closest book I found on Amazon was *Omiyage, which says wasnt published until 2001.... the date doesnt quite fit my inability to buy it, which is which is why its not in my library LOL... Cant find enough pictures inside the book to see if its in there. I dont want the book, just was talking to someone in the Chat Room about the little bag, and we are both baffled why its just NO PLACE on the internet no matter what i search for....

Anyone remember that little bag ?

On another note, here is a quick teepee bag pattern that I have made in every size possible, even one big enough for an overnight bag. They are super easy.

i have a tute bookmarked somwhere that i can't currently find. but it is what you describe, but the blogger posted it as a thread catcher. i have made several ...

cut two equilateral triangle -10" to a side - one for outside & one for lining. i use 12" triangle as it is nicer size. place triangles right sides together & stitch all around outside edge leaving about 2" opening. use the opening to turn right side out. top stitch close to edge on all three sides after folding in the edges of opening. sew up each triangle edge. - one to another about 2" up from base - you'll have a three sided little pouch with flat bottom. fold triangle tips down. attach button or whatever near tip to secure flap down. done. i am trying to upload one i made w lace & flower instead of button to hold flap down. i have another i did w flowers attached to buttons on the flap but can't get pic small enough to post here. i have also made one using light weight denim for lining. i give these as thankyou gifts & "just 'cause" gifts ..they are loved by recipients. getting ready to make several more for church ladies who give mr thier scraps for my miniatures.

The pattern is complete. The extra pages are just blank. I have the original online print out of it, way before they became known as Hobo bags which was sold as a pattern and was a popular project to make a few years ago.
