I drew up the dimensions myself because I needed it large enough to house my size 5G jiffy bags, and I wanted the handles to fit me just right :) I didn't follow any tutorial to make the bag as all the ones I found on the web involved lots of cutting, lots of peices (which I hate) and lots of wordy instructions - I just like nice pictures. So I made this up as I went along, with very little cutting yayy! and I think it turned out ok.
I used a plain old calico for the outer part, and a pretty pink floral cotton for the straps and pocket, to make it more me :) The straps are made with jute webbing to make it super strong, I also added an inside zippered pocket, which I got right after a couple of attempts! There are no visable seams on the bag purposely, as I really wanted to avoid top-stitching around the top of the bag (because it would be wonky!!). I will show you how I did it with a tutorial next week if that sounds good? Jessie, xo
