    Very nice. I could use some of those. Guess I'll go look it up on YouTube. Is #37 the right one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhGnA_HrXSA

    Edited to add: I think PB yours looks more like #40. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgKkInH-8bs

    Here are the printed instructions:

    On YouTube....MakingLifeCount...project bag...floss tube

    This will make 2 bags:

    1/2 yd outer fabric
    1/3 yd lining fabric
    1/3 clear vinyl. ..medium weight..
    1/3 fusible fleece...we used pellon 987F
    (2) 14 inch zippers
    Wonder tape

    Cut for (1) bag:

    13 x 11 1/4....lining fabric and fusible fleece

    13 x 9 3/4 .....vinyl

    15 1/4 x 13 3/4.....outer fabic...take note if fabric is directional width is 15 1/4....

    Cut (2 strips) 2 x 13 ....outer fabric

    Steps:

    1. Fuse the fleece to wrong side of the lining fabric

    2. Fold under and press 1/2 inch on all four sides of the outer fabric

    3. Fold under 1/2 inch on top and bottom of each strip of the outer fabric (2 x 13 strips). Press to make two 1 x 13 inch strips

    4. Sandwich vinyl between the 2 strips about 1/2 inch in.....use wonder tape (you can buy at joanns ...quilting notions) on both sides to attach vinyl to the strips. Then sew a 1/4 seam.

    5. Sandwich the zipper into the top of the 2 strips. Sew in place with the zipper pull on the right. Note...where the zipper actually opens place 1/2 inch from edge.

    6. Lay the vinyl/zipper on top of the lining/fleece. Sew along the top edge using thread to match the zipper. Then sew a small seam around the 3 remaining edges (1/8 seam). Trim/square up any uneven edges at this point. Note - I back tacked over the zipper ends....when you square up cut off excess zipper edges.

    7. Center the vinyl/lining piece on top of the outer fabric. Fold over the top and bottom and sew a 1/4 inch seam. A walking foot is helpful at this step.

    8. Miter the corners (review Ollie's attached pdf) and sew the 2 sides.

    Those are great! I can see where they'd come in handy in all sorts of sizes. You've got me thinking!

    Those look great! I haven't sewn with vinyl yet, but this looks like it would be a good project to try.

    8 gauge vinyl works best. Crafty Gemini has a great video on Youtube about how to sew with vinyl. Great tips.

    I like the fabrics you chose for your bags! I've never sewn with vinyl before, but this gives me the incentive to try. Thanks so much for not only the detailed instructions, but the link to the videos. These will be great stocking stuffers and allow for a lot of creativity in fabric choice.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Clever! Never used vinyl either but did similar bags with mesh. Back to the drawing board!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Very handy item...thank you for sharing and taking the time to type up the instructions. I have some vinyl on hand from a different project. I can see one of these in my near future.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
