Default Can't find any resources on how to make the bag for "brew in a bag"

I am ready to jump into all-grain, and want to start with brew in a bag. However, my google-fu is lacking, and I can't seem to find any resources on how to make the bag itself.

I don't have a sewing machine, but I don't mind doing it by hand. I am basically looking for a simple how-to which will specify the materials to use and the sewing method.

I believe this is the stuff I used back when I was BiaBing: http://www.amazon.com/Piece-Window-Curtains-panels-treatment/dp/B000VLZJLS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1328073815&sr=8-2

It's a simple seam. It's worth doubling it up, though, since the grain can get heavy. If you've got a dry cleaners near you, most will stitch the line for a couple of bucks.

For only $18 you should PM wilserbrewer, he will send you a far better bag than you can get and make yourself. In my area, the materials alone were over $12, his bag was far better quality and included shipping for $18. I'm in no way affiliated with him, but was impressed enough with the quality that I'd recommend him!
