i love this project and can't wait to get started on my own, but i have been trying to figure out exactly what to use as my measurements or template. i am too much of a perfectionist to get started using any old random grocery bag as my template and i'm convinced it won't come out to the size and shape i want, i.e. like the op's bag, seeing as every store's bags are different. i looked at the link to the tutorial that the op used as inspiration and was just going to go with the measurements listed there and follow the tutorial here, but i think that the straps would probably end up being too narrow; i like the wider ones. so i'm wondering, what store's bags did you use as your templates?

Open out the gusset and cut in half on both sides:



also, i'm not quite clear what the op meant here. can anyone explain what exactly we are to cut in half?

She means to slit the bag in its side seams so that you have two pieces, essentially a front and a back.

I didn't read your earlier post until now, but yes, a Target bag makes a great pattern.  It's what I use for mine.

thanks jennyleigh! i'm wondering, did you add a seam allowance before you cut out the outline of the grocery bag? i measured the top of the unfolded handles and it's 6 inches across, and it seems like after you'd fold the handles in and sew it up, 3in seems way wider than the handles in the pictures you guys have posted. maybe that's because seam allowance wasn't added, and then some of the width was swallowed up in the seams? or maybe i'm just not judging the width correctly by the pictures... Undecided
