Again, i don't have any pictures of it being made so i hope you get my drift :P
Cut out two pieces of black cotton for the sides of your bag. Then Cut out two pieces of your flowery (or whatever) fabric, for the pockets, leaving it big enough to do a hem.
Fold down about a centimetre all the way around each pocket and pin it in place. Machine or hand sew down the side which you have chosen to be the opening of your pocket. Then machine sew the pockets to one peice of the black cotton and make sure you dont sew the top part down (an easy but foolish mistake).
Make a 2 centimetre-ish hem on the top of each side peice only. Now put the sides of the bag together so that the pockets are on the inside. Machine sew around the edge, again leaving the top part open.
Measure how long you want the straps to be and cut them to length, leaving about and inch or so on each end. I used a leathery-suedey kind of fabric but you could just use the same as you used for the main part of the bag. Next sew the straps on. Pretty self explanatory i think but ask if you need help (:
Finally turn your bag the right way round, trim off any loose threads and your done!
If you have any questions then please ask (:
