Step 1: Measure Your Table

This Instructable is specifically for making a bag to hold this table, but using these principles you can make a carry bag for anything.
Begin by measuring your table.

Roll the tabletop into a bundle with the spreaders and legs inside.
Measure the length and write it down. Measure the circumference around the bundle and write that down too.

Step 2: Cut the Cloth

Using the measurements from the previous step, add 8" to the length and 6" to the circumference. This can vary from project to project due to the way you roll yours up so I'm going to refrain from giving the actual measurements. Also, if you don't have a tape measure, you can use the rope for the drawstring to get the dimensions...and an American dollar is exactly 6" long.
Cut the cloth to these dimensions.

I hadn't seen your table before! That's awesome and so is this bag :) And it could be used for so many different things; very handy!
