A cute bag with a unique look!
I first saw this project in Generation T's "108 Ways to Tranfsorm a T-Shirt" by Megan Nicolay. It was originally made from t-shirts but I did it a little differently, using regular fabric bought from a store. I found this made the bag sturdier and generally nicer looking. One of my favorite bags by far :)
**If at any point my directions are confusing or my pictures are unclear, please post a comment or message me and I'll be happy to explain them better.

Now you should have two big triangles. Insert the tips of one pair of triangles between the layers of the other, so that the 9" sides overlap. Pin and sew along this bottom, 9" edge. NOTE: The triangles that you insert will be the ones visible on the outside of the bag, so arrange them as you like.
This is probably the trickiest part of this whole project. If you're sewing by hand, it't not so bad but using a machine can be a little difficult. Turn the bag inside out and pin the overlapping edges of the fabric together as shown. Sew them together being very careful to do only 2 layers at a time, otherwise you'll end up sewing your bag closed! Repeat for the other side of the bag.
