OK, ladies sorry for the delay but here goes. First you need to get your material, for the outer shell anything will do that you like. For the inner linning I found the plastic table cloth cut to whatever size worked best. I also tried a shower curtain thickness, but that was realy difficult to work with. I cut out a pattern out of brown paper (used diaper bag template!).

When cutting I folded the material in half and cut two pieces of each for one bag.

My measures ments were basically 31cm (12") X 25cm(10")top X 33.5cm (13") bottom

 

Attach the zipper first. Place the first piece of the outer shell down face up with the zipper laying face down.

after you sew the seam check to make sure you caught all three pieces. If the buckle of the zipper is giving you a hard time, trying unzipping the zipper and sewing half. Then zip up the zipper to where you have sewn.

when placing the other pieces of material make the face to face.

next you will want to sew the side seam. Do the inner linning first and then the outer shell. DO ONLY THE SIDE SEAMS. Check the side seams to ensure a good seam especially at the zipper.

After checking that the seams are good flip it inside out again. Sew the bottom seam of the outer shell first. Then do the corners. If you left your material squared off you can cut it now or trimm off excess. I tried to match the bottom and side seams when pinning it. After doing the corners, flip everything inside out again, so that the shell is the right way with the bottom of the linning undone.

The plastic is a little harder to work with. I found that pinning this really made a difference. Fold the seams inwards and pin the bottom seam together.

after sewing the bottom seam do the corners, as before.

my end result looked like this.

Before pushing the linning, I used iron on decorations to jazz them up a bit. I got them from Michael's and Walmart. After cooling I pushed the liner inside and done. Good Luck I hope you girls can use this, and I explained it well enough.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
