Hi!
Thanks for the lovely comments Smiley

re how I made it

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!

Ive been thinking of making a larger one for lighter objects, like cereal packets and tissues ect.
My dd has asked for 4 hippo bags, as a matching set  Grin

back to the sewing machine
take care!
