I
t looks easy enough but I'm terribly without a guide, or pattern. Any ideas? Thanks so much.

(I know its suppose to be do it yourself, but i guess I'm a WOPDIF,  watch other people do it first)

For more detail on the method Kiteman suggests look at my playmat/toybag 'ible but make it much smaller - maybe about 18" diameter circle?

I think it's just a circle, hemmed, with the cord/handle threaded through eyelets that pull it closed.

Yes. You could make it like that, and if you used "fusible interfacing" around the top "hem" and the straps, you won't have to sew anything. (Fusible interfacing is sandwiched between folded fabric and ironed in place).

See Kiteman, 3rd sammy reference. ;)

Haha, go and eat something before you start sucking the crumbs out of your keyboard!

(In the UK, the interfacing has a lot of names; wonderweb, bondaweb, or just "hemming tape".)
