The loops are an excellent idea and I love stripes and plaids together.

Good job~

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! I feel all fuzzy  Smiley
The bag is the infamous "Jordy bag" with some slight modifications.
The bag itself is two rectangles, 52 cms by 88 cms with a 1cm seam allowance.
The rectangles cut out of the sides are 21cm by 10 1/2 cms.
I used one of these rectangles to make the 2 loops.
I cut it in half length ways, then folding the sides to the middle, zigged zagged both sides down.
Then folding in half again and top stitching.
I dont pull the bag inside out from the base seam, I leave a part of the top of the bag open, pull through and topstitch the entire bag, making the seam invisible.
I make my handles the same way I made the loops, except I pin instead of zigzaging.
Just cut your handles the length you want plus a tucking in allowance, four times the width you want them.
Hope thats helpful!

I really like the loops on the side.  I have made several using this tut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79062.0 and they go really quick.

I really like the fabric you used on these bags and the ones here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228521.0.   Smiley I hate the plastic bags, as they don't hold up (Usually tear before even getting groceries in the house).  Really nice job, thanks for posting the measurements.  I'll have to make some.

Cool.  It would take way too many of these when I go shopping, but I admire people who can/do use them.  Very nice.

Not as many as you may think. These reusable bags hold so much more than some flimsy paper or plastic sack. The thing really is that everyone can use them, they just have to want to.

You did a nice job on these bags, and your Dad should be proud to use them. Good fabric pattern for a man, too.
