I finally made one. It really is easy, I love it!



Action shots:



The only problem is that my pocket is too small so I can't fold it and put inside the pocket. But it still is a nice bag and the next one that I make will be better.

Thanks again for the awesome tutorial.  Wink

Has anyone tried T-shirt material on the outside of these? I have a length of it that I have already made the Yellow Goodbye Bag out of and I don't really want more. I was thinking of these with a cotton lining.

Was surfing Etsy today, and saw someone is selling this exact style bag. Pocket and all. Was wondering if it was from this tutorial because it sure looks like it. Hope if it was that they would at least give credit to the queen for the design.

Sansa, I haven't made this bag with t-shirt material, but a friend of mine has made some similar bags with actual t-shirts. She "quilts" it (no batting/wadding) on to a sturdier fabric, like denim or twill, then makes her bag. They are very cute and the lining makes them sturdy - not stretchy.

So I'd say, go for it.

Thanks for this, just a quick question. Does this make three layers of fabric in the bag or two? Is she quilting it to the lining or quilting it to a stabilising fabric then lining it?

Just two layers, *if* there's a sturdy/thick fabric like denim or twill.

If she uses a lighter cotton/whatever, then she uses a batting.

Again, her bags are a little different than this shopping bag tute. Don't be afraid to try something new!

 Grin  I am so in love with these bags - especially with longer handles for my shoulders.  I packed one in my suitcase, and I took it all over Europe with me.  When I didn't have much to carry, it took up very little space, and when I had to haul a ton (like when the weather was iffy), it expanded to hold everything.  When I was caught in the rain, I was able to wear it on my shoulder, but under my raincoat without a hitch. 

Thanks again for the great tute!!

Weee! First Post!

Ok now that my jitters are over with...I cannot wait to try this bag!  I love the fabrics you Ladies are using too.

In addition to the "go green" and saving on plastic bags I was thinking these would be great to keep in the car to grab whatever needs to come inside.  Having a toddler I need all the extra help I can get!
