Heres what I made based on your little design, my mom LOVES it! She's on a reusable shopping bag kick, so she wants me to make more!

Love your fabric, Megawench, especially the lining fabric.

I have some Mary Engelbreit fabric.  There are big panels with the "Queen of Everything" and "Princess of Quite a Lot" design.  The panels are about 14" by 14".  I've been trying to think of something to do with them for YEARS!  Has anyone tried making this pattern with separate fabric for the handles, rather than as a single piece?  The lining could be a single piece according to the pattern, but the way the panels are printed on the ME fabric, I'd have to do some cutting and "pasting" to get the outer piece.

betty bat, I think it would be really cute to use the ME panels for this bag.  Maybe you could do a border around them to incorporate them into the handles?  ME is just too cute to sit in the stash!

Having managed to wrangle all the components of the camera together, here are the bags I've made:

The small one is perfect for DVDs or library books, and has been comandeered by my 3 yr old:

The larger tote.  It's amazing just how much these can carry. 


The lining of the large bag.  I had to use two different pieces, as I am trying to use up the odds and ends of my stash:



The lining of the smaller bag.  I reused the pocket of some old hospital-issue scrubs. It even has a pen holder!



All the fabric for these bags has come from old scrubs that I made back in the day when I was a floor nurse and made them myself.  It's not likely that I'll do that type of nursing again, so it's been really great to be able to do something with all the scrubs that lets me see my cute fabric!  Since I have an entire enormous sterilite container full of scrubs, I've got tons of fabric to make more bags!  Which is good, because my Mom has been eying the floral one!

The bag is made from one pattern piece.  It's just like the plastic shopping bags and in fact the pattern is made from the shopping bag.

Thanks for posting the tutorial!  As a beginner to sewing, I appreciate the concise instructions.  
The tote is so cute that I am carrying it as a purse.  The fabric is vintage.
(I plan to use this pattern again but will make longer handles so that I can hang the tote on my shoulder.)

Thanks Barbalot!  I appreciate your taking the time to make a comment!!
The fabric is a strange pheasant and abstract gun print.  The weirder, the better, I say.
