How about a grocery bag?
I tried to make this as easy as possible

Good luck

Please share with me an easy bag that I can make, following instructions from this site.  I would like to print it out and go to town with it.

Thank you so much for any help sent my way.

Happy Crafting.
It's not from Craftster, but the With Love Tote tutorial is super easy (only 3 pieces) and it's lined! 
If you want to have boxed corners, read this page as well:  Tutorial: Box the Bottom Corners of a Bag

There used to be a PDF of it all, but it's gone now.

I read this before & couldn't think of anything until now. How about this:


Not from Craftster, but it looks easy enough. It'll teach you how to attach handles to a bag as well as how to make the bag.

I'm new here, so pardon me if I'm not in the right place.  Smiley

I was thinking of making the ladies in my family some kind of tote bag out of neckties for the holidays.  Not a purse, mind you-I've found some wonderful ideas for those around here.

But more of, like a small shopping tote. That sort of size.

Is there a pattern for this anywhere around the internet?

I was hoping for something like this, but perhaps a little larger (which I'd inline, but ten posts and all...):



I should probably add to this that I'm not exactly an expert sewer. Smiley

Did you ever end up making this bag? I was thinking about attempting it myself for my sister in law.

That is a super cute bag! Would love to make it as well!

I know I'm coming in late to this conversation.  I suggest you head to the store, go through the pattern books and grab a pattern with this basic bag shape / style.  Watch for the pattern sales.  You can pick up patters for as little as a buck or two.

Then come home, study the pattern and revise it as needed to create this bag.  You'll be looking for a pattern that has separate pieces for:

The front & Back
The bottom
The sides

You can do this!

I like the shape of the bag at the link below. I've never attempted making my own pattern but would like to try this. I can't tell what the pattern shape is. For instance, is it just 2 pieces sewn together or is there a bottom piece or is it maybe like the Jordy bag? I'd take any advice anyone can offer. Here's the link:

The bottom looks rounded, not squared & looks like there is a short pocket on one side & a long pocket on the other. The shape is kinda like this one: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/phoebe_bag.pdf. Maybe you can use this shape & just add pockets at the ends & modify the strap.
