Cute!  I didn't read through all of the thread, cause there's a lot of pages.  But how much fabric do you need?  I think I'll make this my first project.  And give it to my sister for Christmas.  I'm making her a blanket.  So I think I'll stick the blanket in the bag, and then give it to her.  Smiley  *Excited*

You'll need 1 yard for the outside and 1 yard for the lining.

But how much fabric do you need? 
I make several different sizes.  My largest bag takes 27" (3/4 of a yard) of lining and outer fabric, and my smaller one takes 24" (2/3 of a  yard).  I have made a couple of mini-ones, but I'm not sure how much fabric. . .

Just going to ask another question about that, but I guess I don't need to now do I? Tongue

So you CAN use less than a yard and it'll work out alright?  Cause I got some remnants a couple of weeks ago, cause I wanted to practice on some fabric before I went and did the final one for my sister.

Remnants are great to practice on - and, yes, you don't have to use a full yard.  My big bag is 27", and it is really big [We call it the elephant bag].  If you want to carry these on your shoulder, adding a couple of inches to the handles should take care of that.  I took my "elephant" to Europe, and I cannot believe how much stuff I fit into it while tromping through Paris!!

i adapted my bags to fat-quarter size. i made four! with fat quarters, i needed 2 for the outside and 2 for the lining (and an extra for a pocket, if you want one)



my favorite part is picking out coordinating linings


i'm so enamored with this tutorial that i made it part of my new year's resolution. i bought enough fabric to make 30 of these (one(+) for each member of my extended family), divided them into twelve ziplocs, and i'm tackling a bag a month so i'll have them all done by christmas time!

thank you so much for this!
