I just wanted to share the ones I've made so far.

I even used them at the store the other day and they were so great! I felt like my groceries were so secure, if that makes any sense. I didn't add the pocket to tuck them into since I figure I'll just leave them in my car or on the same table I put my bag when I come home so I'll always have them.  I love these idea for gifts, though.  I have a picture in my head of five or so of these bags in the same color/pattern (w/ the pocket) all tied up with a pretty ribbon.
Ummm ... sheleibean: I think you posted the wrong picture.  This one is a pic of a fly with a watch.  (Perhaps it's something you made and meant to post elsewhere...? You've probably already been called on this.

Ignore me...

Whoa- that's not even my picture. I don't know why my photo of my bags isn't there- I"ve never seen that picture before.

I would like to ask if someone is able to give me the dimensions of the bag? I tried 2 times already to make one and fold it in the front pocket but I seem to be too stupid to do it. Perhaps the plastic bag I used is responsible for the problems. I'm from Germany and we usually don't get such plastic bags in the supermarket. You get this type with takeaway food and they are smaller. If someone could measure a bag for me that would be great! Just the height and width and how deep the gussets on the side are.

Many thanks!

Hi Ursel!!  The finished bag itself is approx. 30cm wide x 40cm high (excluding handles).  The gusset is about 10cm.  Handles are about 13cm high. 

The bag 'plastic pattern' that I have is:

52cm wide x 41cm high (from base to bag opening) with handles extending beyond that by approx 14cm and are 14cm wide. 

The tutorial shows cutting the bag in half on the fold so that makes the 52cm width become 26cm on the fold.

Hope this helps.  If not, I can always send you a plastic bag pattern.

I finally have pictures of one of my shopping bags.  I've actually made three, but have only managed to get pictures of the one.  This tutorial is wonderful though and I plan on making a lot more.  It's been fun checking back to see if anyone has made any new ones.  I'm actually supposed to be making four for a friend of mine, so I'm sure I'll be back with more pictures.

Here's mine:

And the inside:

I chose not to do the pocket on the outside, at least for the ones for me.  I've also made a second butterfly one with an orange interior and a green star one with a floral interior.

Here's to more shopping bags to come!   Smiley

I love that butterfly fabric.

I have also made one of these bags.  I end up using it more as a purse than for groceries!  Although it is big enough to carry all I need purse wise and throw in a few groceries on a quick stop at the store!  I made mine with chicken print on the outside and dark green solid on the inside.  I will have to get some pics of it.  This was the first bag I have ever made.

Hi I have been lurking here for awhile and have to say I love this pattern. Now have a question, I had bookmarked a link from here that told an easier way to do these handles, well I just accidently deleted it.  Embarrassed I was wondering if anyone knows where it is? I have been looking for awhile with no luck.

Thanks in advance


Edited to add: Never mind found it again! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257229.0

Thanks again!
