felted bag pattern
okay, i am making felted bags for my sisters, I have looked all over on the internet for a GOOD looking felted bag pattern and have found a few, I just need ONE more pattern, but almost every pattern that I see on the internet is sooooo ugly, I can't believe that there are so many people with ugly bags out in the world.
can anyone find a felted bag pattern that looks GOOD?
I want to make a bag that people wont be ashamed to go out in public with. It needs to be a bag that doesnt look home-made either.
I just want a simple bag that is big enough to hold important items, it cant be any funky shape (like: http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=171024
or
http://orangefishknits.blogspot.com/...gle-purse.html )
I just want a nice looking bag
these are the patterns that I already have:

yes, I have, all of my patterns so far can be found on there, I had a notebook where i wrote all of the bags that I thought might look nice from that website, and my mom took it (she needed to write down a phone number, but she doesnt remember where she put it) so, I *could* look at every pattern one by one again, but I was hoping that there would be some people here who could suggest one so i dont have to spend all that time on the internet and more time making bags.
am i lazy?

I like ur taste

I kindda thought the same browsing through patterns before..but I'll give you what I have...and of course there's knittingpatrterncentral as Ingrid said..

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/vi...vibe_tote.html

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/melody/melody.html i think this one looks cool with or without the lil parts on the sides..i'd take them out of the pattern if i was doing it though

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/pignoli/pignoli.html

http://files-upload.com/files/441427...nviro-tote.pdf

http://files-upload.com/files/441431/talisman bag.pdf maybe make this bigger..

well that's all I can find in my bookmarks and saved files so now..they're not all felted but that's what I've got!

of course you can always just make a basic tote in self-striping yarn with you're sister's favorite colors..and make the handle kindda like the one u picked with the music notes on it(i love that one btw..and the clutch too!)..and just felt it..
