Oh, nice!  I've been wanting a small, compact shopping bag that I could just whip out when needed.  All my shopping bags are really huge--this one's perfect for quick grocery stops!  I love the pocket idea.  So much better than keeping a plastic bag wadded up in my purse.

This is great.  My neighbor and I were just talking about wanting some of these.  My laundry room has been taken over by those pesky plastic bags.

To answer the question on yardage/metreage, I purchased 1 metre each of outer fabric and lining fabric.  I have probably about 30 cm (1 foot) left of each fabric.  So, a yard would be plenty.  I did however, purchase 122cm wide fabric which is 48 inches.  The usual width is 112cm or 44 inches.  I don't think it would make a huge difference though. 

Great idea, and great tutorial!  Thanks for posting!

I wonder if you could make this with a sturdier fabric (cotton duck or canvas, for example) and line the handles and top portion of the bag only (similar to a facing in an unlined jacket)?

Yes, you could partly line it.  Just cut your lining piece across, just below the curved handles and curved opening part and just double hem the bottom of the lining.

Wow, that's rockin' awesome!  I can't wait to make one for myself!  Thank you so much for posting the tutorial.  And the way you made a little pouch for it to fold into is genius!

This is so clever! The fact that you can fold it into a pouch is quite genius. It pretty much eliminates the "I always forget to bring them" excuse for not using cloth bags.

And you can make them cute and stylish! Yet, another incentive.

Thanks so much!  Cheesy
