i found out if you ask for a 1/2 yard cut, open it, and fold it like a "hot dog" (the long way) then in half the other way (where the crease is), then line up the fold with the fold of your pattern, making sure the cut out middle part is facing the middle fold, then you can cut out the bag, and use the middle part as your pocket, and there are NO scraps! woo hoo! (i hate scraps because i hate throwing them away)

QUESTION   Hi!  Love this idea, and I cut my pieces out this way.  But now I can't figure out how to turn the lined version inside out (since handles are in one piece).  What are the steps that allow you to do this?  Or does this work only with an unlined bag?   THANKS!

Just curious, has anyone tried to sew slits in the handles so the slide over the metal racks the stores have to hold their bags? 

If you go to the first page of this board (Singlet Style Shopping bag) you'll find the pattern that initiated the creation of the pattern that we are all working on. The original pattern was an unlined bag with the little tabbies that have buttonholes...in the same location as the plastic bags.

But I do like the idea of placing little loopies on the handles too!  Who would have thought that a little shopping bag could bring out so much crafty goodiness!

I just got jacked on Etsy and I should have just gone with yours in the first place. I bought a "pattern" (for $3 + $1.50 shipping and handling? Roll Eyes ) thinking I could go the lazy route rather than trace a bag like you did. Instead I got your tutorial regurgitated. Darn!

TFS, OP! I'm making some for my daughter's teacher for Christmas. Smiley

I wonder if you could fold the material with right sides facing when you cut out your pieces.

You should tell the OP the etsy name so something can be done.  That's not right for someone else to sell her free work.

I did it and cut the pieces in two afterward and sewed as normal. I thought the folding was just to get the U shaped pieces togetrher as one piece for the pocket. I could very easily be wrong.

Her tutorial doesn't have the pouch attached but they're almost identical. I paid $4.50 for a 'tutorial' rather than a "pattern." Boy, am I ticked.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!!  I have reported the item on Etsy, so we'll see what they do about it.  It's kind of annoying that people do this as I want to help others (as I like using free tutorials) but this person obviously has crossed the line in using my tutorial.

Leah - is Craftster able to do anything about it?  I ask this because I don't want future tutorials put at risk of them "being ripped off"....

I was looking for a bag to make for my Mother-In-law for Christmas and was thinking along the lines of a shopping bag. This is Perfect, and you make it sound so simple for us novice bag makers.  I also love the way it folds in on itself. Thank you for your time in putting together this tutorial.

Man, this stinks queenofdiy. I'm so sorry but I don't think there's anything I can do about it since it's happening on Etsy and not Craftster. Sad I hope they can take some action!
