I can carry on my back ---like a back pack.
I have just attempted some crazy patchwork and want to make something out of the piece I have made.

Here is a simple drawstring bag that a friend of mine made. She loves it especially for quilt shows. She can carry her purchases but keep her hands free to enjoy the quilts

here's one that's more "backpack" looking (and has metric measurements) http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Backpack-Bag

You know, I've found a lot of pattern books in the library, including one for a bunch of bags.

So, I check them out and use them.

Thank you for all your answers---I just couldn't find a pattern on the net---maybe i couldn't see the wood for the trees or the material for the bags----lol

That is a nice pattern that NiceNCLady told you about but you don't necessarily need to use grommets in the sides. I looked at an Under armour bag my son has and it has about a 3 in piece of webbing strap folded and sewed on the sides and you just run the cord thru it. This bag was small so I made him a bigger one out of that flag type nylon material and the nylon rope in sporting goods at Walmart. I also doubled the material so it would be sturdier. It washes really well. You know boys are messy. It made him a really nice bag. The rope was about 3/8 to 1/2 inch size. Probably 3/8.

Those are some good patterns. Im always amazed at what other people can come across online.. Everyone seems to find something different. I like the back/sack from the page of links.
