Thank you everyone for all the compliments! Cheesy

The fabric was left over from re-doing my daughter's room, and still have tons left. This was a fun project to do, too.

I LOVE this bag - so awesome! I love the coupon & list pockets as I am a coupon & list freak!! I'm totally going to have to make a bag with pockets like that.

I like everything EXCEPT (oh my god someone is going to be honest...RUN!!!!) I think it would be awesome if you tried to make a similar bag with a longer handle so you could put it over your shoulder. personal preference perhaps BECAUSE
It seems to me nobody has to walk further than the shop to their car with their bags... shoulder straps mean you can carry way more weight on your 4mile walk home...  Wink maybe one for each shoulder and one for each hand? hehe  Cheesy I like to eat...and shop  Grin

Thank you all for the comments. Smiley

That is an excellent idea, but these straps do fit onto my shoulders. Although they could be longer to be more of a shoulder bag. Think I will try that with one of the bag fleet I'm making, lol.

Oh wow!  It looks like it's store-bought!!

I was wondering how to make it prop-up, because I used to work at a grocery store, and I know I hated it when people brought in their own bags because they were such a pain to pack because there's no way to hold them up.

You've solved this problem!

I love it, and though I believe it's beyond my current crafting capabilities, I would proudly tote that to the store.

I'll have to find a way to implement the bag-prop-up in a regular tote-bag, until I can make one like yours!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Awesome!  Store bought cloth shopping bags are always so small so a paper sack-sized model with added features is genius!

Wow! Thank you all so much!  Grin

After the bag challenge is over, I'll be glad to post a tutorial on how I made the bag. It was fairly easy since I knew what I wanted in a bag.
