I measured the width of my fingers, and added half an inch to get the width of the rectangle, and then chose the height more randomly so that I got a rectangle with nice proportions. My measurements were 3.25 inches by 1.5 inches. I've used my bag all summer and autumn, and am so pleased with it. Choose a rectangle size that's not too big, but that you'll still get your hand in easily.

Happy sewing!

When I made this bag I didn't do the handle correctly, but I still get a lot of compliment everytime I use it.

I can't grasp the concept of doing the handles cleanly, I guess I'd need someone to show me in person to understand better Sad  but I love the design Smiley

a work-around you could use is to cut the handles out and fold and press the edges. then match the pieces and baste and bind the top edge (so you have what looks like a completed bag, but has raw handles). then pin, pin, pin the handle openings together and sew around those edges.

doing it this way you would have to be very careful with your sewing so as not to shift either of the layers of fabric. but it would work well enough, i think.

Im new here and Im from Berlin, Germany, so my english is not so good at all.

I found this tut and was very impatient to sew the bag, because it is like one of Amy Butler by www.amybutlerdesign.com.

So here is my result:

look there at the picture "AmyBut-Tasche"

Thank you very much!

I used your tute loved it, easy peasy. I used a stiff interfacing, next time I will use your dimensions, this one came out more like a gift bag..

okay i bookmarked it. Rocked it. And now want to tell you how beautiful your bag is. I am digging the one from the tut! Red and Black is such a hot combo.

i didn't notice the beauty, just how it hurt. Wet like a cherry in a bloodbath of birth.

That's it! I'm trying this. Now. (Not noticing the fact that my mom wants me to go to bed.) I'll make this with some of this scrap fabric that I have lying around to practice on. Thank you so much for the tutorial!!!
