Mad Moxxi Bag Help

I'm making Moxxi's costume from Borderlands, and one of the only things I thing I might have trouble with is the little bag she carries with her-


It looks pretty basic, but I've never had any experience with something like this. I know for the graphic, I can recreate the logo, print it on transfer paper and iron it onto some white fabric. -And to can sew a loop to the back to attach it to the belt.
I'm mostly wondering how I should go about making the pack itself. Is there a pattern or something I should follow, or would it be easier to buy a small, round bag and modify it?
Any help is appreciated!

Look to the same places you look for clothing patterns, there may very well be round bag patterns. Most purses and totes are under Accessories, but look in the Toy & Doll stuff too because it isn't very big.

NOTE: the zippers on that, the way they are drawn, would never open. I'd just get one chunky sized zipper and be 'inaccurate' but have a functional bag.

Actually the zipper could still open. It'd be really hard to get on in the first place, but it'd still be able to open. It's the same zippers you see on those Kingdom Hearts ORgXIII coats.
You can get them here:

You pick the size and click on which size you wan, then it'll go into the lengths of that size.
You can get a super short one.

This looks pretty simple to draft. (Keep in mind that I am no expert at pattern drafting, so it might not be perfect.)
It looks like you'd just need to draw a circle a little bigger than you want the end result, (to account for seam allowance) cut out 2 copies, mark where you want each end of the zipper to be, and then sew up to those marks with right sides together. Then insert the zipper (unzipped) and sew it in place. After that, you can flip it inside out (only if the zipper is still unzipped) and then you can safely zip it shut.

In jr. high we had to make pillows that were similar shapes to this. It's 2 circles and a long rectangle to go between them. You might have to add interfacing to get it to keep its shape.

You can see in your images that the blue parts would be the circle in your pattern and the white part would be the rectangle. However wide you make the rectangle is how thick your bag will be. However big the circles are is how big the bag will be. Be sure to leave seam allowances.

If you add something to stiffen it you might also want to add a lining to it so that it's pretty and if it's made well you can use it on other non cosplay events!

I made a Ramona Flowers sub space bag and the shape is actually really similar. This is the tutorial that I used and it was really easy to follow along with. For materials, I used some sort of cotton fabric. It might have been a twill or a canvas. I'm not sure--I was mostly looking for the right color in a really heavy material. Then for the lining I used a broadcloth. I used super heavy iron on interfacing so that it would keep its shape well.
