Great Pattern for sewing Sock Bags!

I found a great tutorial on sewing sock bags!  It is super simple and the bags turn out great!  I have been playing with different sizes and changes to where the drawstings come out.  I am planning on making these bags to hold the Harry Potter goodies for when the next movie comes out.  I found some great material, I will try to post a pic of it when I finish one.  Here is the basic shape of the bag, the picture is taking from the tutorial:

On a different note, I am a little scared to go to work today being it is the April Fools Day.  Hopefully, it will be a quiet day at Azkaban!  Wish me luck! 

EDIT:  I totally spaced puttng the link to the tutorial, so here it is:

Heya Lav.

Love the fabric! Would you mind passing along the link to the tutorial?

btw ... do you do much sewing? I've been wondering if there are online resources for spiffy fabrics. The only options I have around here are Hobby Lobby (cheap quality and generally blah selection), Joann's Fabric (quality is hit and miss) and a quilting store.

Just added the tutorial. I meant to add that when I wrote it!

I just started sewing again. I was having a heck of a time finding pj bottoms that were long enough, so I thought I would make my own.

As for fabrics, you can find a lot of cool fabrics on Etsy.com if you search under the supply tab. Here is a link: http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?search_type=tag_title_supplies&search_query=fabric

Another site to check out is:

Hope that helps!
