I made this bag ages ago and never got round to posting it. As you can tell by the wrinkles, it has gotten plenty of use! It’s really, really sturdy and holds a lot more than you’d expect. The only downside is that I made it from an old doona cover so it’s quick thick and bulky when folded up.
The instructions are here: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/04/one_of_the_medi.html – I did find that the gusset from the pattern is WAY too long, so you might need to chop a bit off the ends once you’ve measured and pinned it to the bag.
