I've made many rod bags. Hand-sewn, it's a several-hour project, good for an evening of TV watching. I've used both string and velcro closures. Once, I embroidered my name on a bag's flap. No pattern is needed. Cut the cloth slightly more than twice as wide as a suitable existing bag. I sew the bottom and side edge first (pins for holding the parts together are a help here) inside-out to hide the edge, then turn the bag rightside-out and sew the stitches between rod sections. It sometimes helps to use chalk or crayon to mark a straight line.
