Step 1: Gather the Materials

You will need:
• a needle
• thread
• 2 different fabrics
• popsicle sticks
• a square/rectangle of cardboard
• scissors
• yarn/a ribbon

Step 2: Cutting the Pieces for the Bottom

Take the secondary fabric (jeans) and trace the cardboard rectangle, then cut (leaving 1/2 to 1 inch as a border. Use that and trace onto and cut the primary fabric (blue) so you have 2 fabric rectangles about the same size.

Step 3: Sew the Bottom

Sew three sides of the fabric squares together (with the pattern/color facing inward on both. Then turn inside out, slip in the cardboard, and see shut.

Step 4: Creating the Sides

Measure the length of the four sides of the square, and then cut a rectangle of the primary fabric with that length. The height should be the height that you want for your bag (plus 1-2 inches). Then sew the fabric onto the edge of the rectangle, so that all 4 sides are attached.

Step 5: Sew the Sides Together

Then you should sew the ends of the fabric rectangle together. This should look similar to the picture above at this point.

Step 6: Sew the Border

Use the four Popsicle sticks to form a square. Sew the Popsicle sticks onto the edge of the fabric, overlapping the fabric. Then sew under the Popsicle sticks to keep them in place.

Step 7: Add Handles

Use strips of ribbon or fabric to create handles in whatever style suits you

Step 8: Embellish and Enjoy!

    This is cute. Unfortunately our hamster escapes everything. We should have named him Frank Morris!

    The heading of this instructable put me in mind of dozens of little hamsters on a flat-topped boat with itty-bitty wings strapped on their backs, awaiting their turns at the teeny little catapult. I mean, hamsterpault.
