GothChics, your pictures show the folding  without pocket so clearly!  It took me a while to figure it out, but it's so handy, I could NOT get the pocket to work right for me!

yeah! I'm glad it was helpful I couldn't (in my left handed way) work out the pocket way at all so I had to work out something else I'm glad it helped someone else to see how I did it Smiley

Oh I'm so glad you figured out how to do it without the pocket! I've been dying to make some of these for awhile now, since I'm an environmental engineer I should probably do more for the environment at home. Smiley Can't wait to try these pocketless bags out!

BTW love those fabrics. I actually just bought some of that blue polka dot to use as a lining for a purse, and I used the green version as linings for a purse and a coat! You'll definitely be getting groceries in style now!  Grin

Love the fabrics love the folding, I need to make some of these. I been buying the 99 cent reusuable ones but they are made of like an interfacing feeling fabric and really fugly and the don't fold compactly for shite! I need to force myself to use some of my fabrics instead of hoarding it like I do. I think the skully fabric is super cute.

Did you follow a pattern or tutorial for this? I should make some. I end up with about a billion plastic bags.

I didn't I just used one of the billion plastic baggies I had around here as a pattern, and one of the little ones I got from the quick shop for the small one but I did change them up a little because the handles are double folded in the store ones, so I narrowed it  and I changed the width of the gusset so I could maxamize the # of bags I could get from the fabric I had to use too.  I tried to make as little waste in making the bags as I could, I'm now working out how to use the small scraps to make a few zippered pouches lol.
