So get started!
I had promised some links to free bag patterns on Wednesday, but I didn't get to it...Sorry! Here are some links and ideas:
Joann's Fabric has 356 free "bag" patterns--all kinds of bags--all kinds of skill (sewing, paper, crochet, knitting, etc.):
I made a bag from this linked pattern at Joann's website, and it was easy...

Go for it!
