What materials did you use? Fabric scraps of all kinds (used, new, cotton, stretch, ...), sashiko thread, laminee fabric for bottom, old bed cloth for lining, 505 spray & fix (temporaty fabric adhesive), old cotton piece for interlining

As a conference gimmick I had once got an ugly zipper bag. I used the fabric of this bag as water-proof bottom of the bag. The scraps are 5x5cm-squares, sewed together with 0.5 cm seam allowance. The seams were ironed and the cover fixed to a piece of cotton using 505. Now your're ready for sashiko quilting (by hand, of course). Please note: quilt parts firtst befor you sew them together. Then quilt the new seams as well. The belt strap had been used to carry furniture before, so it's pretty stable stuff. The belt is attached three times to the fabric, so the bag can also carry heavy loads. It has around the same size as those blue IKEA shopping bags.
