I finally got around to making my shopping bags!  These were made by mostly following queenofdiy's tutorial. 


I made the blue superhero bag first, using a regular plastic bag as the template.  It's not as big, the stitches aren't as pretty but I did include the fold-in pocket so it carries around really easy.  Since this was to be the boyfriend's bag, it's didn't have to be pretty, just functional.  With the pink bags I regrouped and made some changes, making a sturdy template from a cereal box using the roomier target plastic bag.  After cutting out everything, I assembly-lined the shopping bags.  These don't have the pocket, since I used the extra fabric to make another bag instead.

I've taken them out to the grocery store twice now, and they can hold quite a lot.  Even with the heavy loads, they hold up well and don't cut into my fingers!  Even the boyfriend is a fan!

Very nice - I especially like your choice in fabric. Just wondering.....is that style hard to pack groceries in?

I really really need to make some of these.  I keep saying I will but I haven't been near the sewing machine in about a week - I think it is getting angry at me - since I have had a hook in my hand for so long - jealous toys!

Your bags came out beautiful!

They look great!!  I've been considering making that bag style... would you recommend them over the regular cloth tote bags (that's what I use now)?
