Are you at the step that's before where the "pocket tute" begins?

can someone help explain this a little better for me..


okay, after you've laid it out all pretty and put the pocket on, you need to take both OUTER pieces and pull them together, right sides together, and both INNER pieces and hold them together with the other hand. the handles will be between the two lining pieces (which are RST), but they won't get caught up in the side seam because of that little dip-in they do at the bottom of the handle (am i making sense?). anyway, here's an explanatory photoshopped pic:

so, then, you'd just pin down both long sides and sew. it's kind of like the opposite of a jordy bag...you've sewn the tops together already, now you're doing the sides, and last you'll do the bottom. pm me if you need more help, i'll be making another one in the next day or two and can take alternate tutorial pics of all the steps.

hope that helped!

Queenofdiy, thank you so much for this wonderful tute.  I have been looking at Envirosax for a couple of months now.  This is so much better because I can use up some my fabric stash.  The french seam gave me a bit of grief, but I finally figured it out.  After the cutting errors and alot of seam ripping, here goes.

My first attempt with cutting errors: notice the upside down flamingos and the pocket that is too small.
  My daughter (modeling) stole the reject one.  She is also modeling her t-shirt gauchos as see in this tute:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99090.0

Here is the second attempt with what fabric I could salvage.  It is much smaller, but I really like it.  I didn't do a pocket on this one.

Now that I have learned a few things, I am excited to do this again.

I'm in the process of making these wonderful bags, and saw an article in teen vogue about someone who started a business selling reuseable shopping bags, they looked kinda like the ones here and also folded up! thanks for the great tute!

These things should carry a health warning - they're really addictive! First one had a couple of mistakes but they were fixable and I'm now contemplating my 4th and 5th ones! They take me about 2 albums to finish from cutting out to finishing (i always time things by how many times i have to change cd!) but I'm getting quicker each time. Here's my pics:

All made out of left-over dress material and I didn't add pockets. (they are all the same they just don't photograph well!)

I love this idea, I think I'm going to make a whole bunch and use up some of that fabric I have laying around!
