            Those are so adorable! If only I knew how to use a sewing machine ... I would love to give them a try.

                  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.

                  place the inner liner fae down and pin

                  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.

                  Click the image to open in full size.
                  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.
