So cute! My daughters (5 & Cool would love it.  It's so girly!  Smiley

Love it!  You did an amazing job!  I was thinking about getting rid of my stained glass making supplies, but this makes me want to pull them out again.

These are very beautiful.  I love the fabrics.  And the ribbon closures make them very girly (in a good way).  Smiley

Yes, the outer fabric is one fat quarter, and the lining is another.  After washing and drying, the fat quarter measured about 17 1/2" X 21 1/2".  So I cut a paper bag into those dimensions and manipulated til I came up with this.

This is the outer fabric.  I used almost every inch of it.  The only difference for the lining is that instead of making handles I used that extra fabric to make 5 squares measuring about 3"X3" to make the flower. 

In case you can't read the measurements:  11 3/4" across the top, 10" across the bottom, and 10 1/4" deep.  Then cut about 1" squares out of the corner

Hint: I folded the fabric in half and cut out the bag shape, NOT cutting across the bottom, so I only had to sew up two sides instead of three.  Then sew the little cut out squares to form the bottom.  (Just search Jordy on craftster and you'll come up with a million examples.  Smiley  )

I added heavy interfacing to the outer fabric, then sewed right sides together for each outer and lining fabric.  Place lining inside outer fabric with right sides touching.  Sandwich handles inbetween and sew around the top leaving a few inches to turn.  Turn and topstitch. 

Oh, I also added a layer of interfacing to the handles to make them sturdier. 

I know you only asked for the dimensions, but I just kept going.  Smiley  I hope this is clear.

Thanks again for all the nice things everyone is saying!!!!!  Craftsters are so supportive.

Thank you everyone for such nice words! 
The teachers were very nice about it this time.  They kept saying how pretty they were and that they love home made gifts.  A few of us talked for awhile about how relaxing it is to sew and knit.  I'm thinking that the christmas presents just got all mixed up together, and maybe they didn't realize I made them.  But this time we handed the bags to them each, and they were very appreciative. 

Toos:  I used the tutorial on burdastyle for the flowers.  http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/384  I feel like I saw it on someone's blog first, but couldn't find it this time around.  Luckily, the exact same one is on burdastyle now.  Very easy to make.  I think it took maybe 15 minutes for each one. 

Thanks again!
