DIY Tripod Bag {Sew Neat!} Repurpose PJ Pants

I finally sewed a tripod bag. I'm very pleased with the result. The body is padded and quilted with a lining on the inside for added protection and strength. I also added a shoulder strap, round bottom, and drawstring top (used the drawstring from the waistband of the pj's).
1 pant leg (I chose to use some PJ pants I never used)
1 lanyard (used to make the strap)
2 D-rings
(general notions: pins, thread, etc...)

Here are a few pics.

Below: Round bottom

ABOVE: Pins are holding the batting and lining in place as I sew the criss-cross pattern on the whole piece.

BELOW: Here is the finished quilting detail.

Here are my pants AFTER the project.
I'm thinking of making this plastic bag holder with the other pant leg.

P.S. I wish I would have taken pics throughout the sewing process...I will for the next project.
