My guess would be: a bag to keep the tent parts in?

yep it is a bag that you keep a tent in.....you need to roll up your tent...the poles usually go in the middle of the roll.....then meansure how long that roll is. Using a pizza pan as the pattern for the bottom you would use this formula to figure out how much fabric you need to make the tube to attach to the pizza pan bottom......3.14 x diameter....or pi times diameter. Don't forget to add enough to the tube to make the casing and the pull sometimes people will add and additional circle just inside the where the casing goes to keep the poles from falling out.....to this you can make 2 more pizza pie pieces and sew them together and turn them right side out and tack just inside the back with about and inch or two stitch. so it ends up looking like a laundry bag... I have made them form sleeping bags too.
Use a sturdy fabric and I have even sewed a nylon strap to the side with reinforcements so it is easier to carry.

That's my take on it.

michelle1538 .... yep she pretty much answered it. TY

DD ordered some tent canopies for the home school school she works at, but they did not come with carrying bags and I got the ...'mom could you make?'...

As Michelle said ... I had to use that darn math (and hubbies help, the math wizard) I had 50" divide by pi (3.14) = 15.92 , plus seam allowance came up with (almost) 17" THE SIZE OF MY PIZZA PAN! Wink I sure helped, instead of trying to draw a 17" circle on slippery nylon, just traced around the pan.

I made two draw string bags (laundry style)

thank you for reply..

i kept thinking you came up with a new style of bag/tote/purse.. was wondering what it looked like and sounded neat..

understand the tent bag now.. good idea to make your own to fit your needs..

i will have to think about a way to design a tent-a-bag.
