I just made one and I LOVE it! Thanks for posting! I think I will use thinner material next time so it isn't so bulky when folded up.

Wistful Thinking.

I'm trying to get started on one for me. I'm using an old shower curtain and haven't decided on what material to use as a lining. Anyway, I'm confused about the part where you sew the out fabric then onto the lining. Undecided This step comes after you sew the U and part of the sides of the handles. 

Anyone understand my problem and can help?

If you search the forums, there is a thread showing another way to make the handles.  I had a hard time trying to visualize this step as well.

This is a winner! While still reading the tutorial, I started to visualize what kind of fabric I should use for each friend's shopping bag. And now I'm breaking my head about the opening hours of the local fabric shops versus my working hours. I can't even go to sleep with all these shopping bag visions filling my mind   Cheesy This tutorial caused a total craft attack

Know what you mean, emimi!  I've been doing long wallets and been staying up too late thinking and looking at all the tutes.  Addictive!!  Gotta try these bags SOOOOON.

How long does it take to find something easy enough to work but with potential to look great, whan you're searching for affordable yet charming gifts for your kid's teachers? I searched for weeks, before I found your tutorial! I ended up making 12 of them this week (I started after the kids were in bed, then one night working til 4:00, one night til 1:00, last night no sleep at all, finished wrapping them up after 6:00 AM, just had time to shower, dress myself and the kids, and rush to work) each in a different color of fabric. I bought cute fabrics, used for quilting, and they came out really nice. One of the teachers told me that my totes were THE thrill in the teachers room at recess time. Even those who weren't my kids' teachers wanted them, and went begging for one...

Firstly....WOW!!  They look fantastic and very well made. Grin  Secondly.....how do you do it ?!?!??  You must be a fast worker.  I hope you get some sleep over the next few days.

I really like the way you packaged them too - so original.  No wonder the teachers are all begging you to make them one.

Glad you found and liked the tutorial  Wink

This is pure genius. I am trying to go as green as possible and those 'reusable bags' are someone expensive for a nice sturdy canvas one. Now I can make a bunch for myself. =)

Just a note to let you know I have made several bags from your tutorial.  Thanks for posting this.

I have made a couple of these and will be making more.  Getting compliments whenever I use one.  One county in New York says they want to charge 25 cents for each plastic bag you get at the checkout.  These cloth bags are going to be VERY popular in the future.  Start sewing them now!!
