I don't know what Jipster did to her bag, but the 'Dirk' shopping bag is made from 'reinforced' plastic and somewhat stiff already, so I assume there wouldn't be any need for interfacing of any kind.

This is an excellent tutorial! I was working on one with a denim lining and a patchwork cover.
I kinda threw it to the side awhile ago and forgot about it ...guess I'll have to revive it.

Jipster, what a fantastic idea using the 'Dirk' bags!!  Cheesy
I see them everywhere (live in Amsterdam too!) and kinda like the bright simple red/white design, but basically, it's a carrier bag isn't it, so not very comfortable to use.. Your bag on the other hand, would be 'cool' AND comfortable!!!
Hmm, will look for you in town... Wink
Another thing... you could sell those on Queens Day!! People would love them!!

Glad you like it, scandibird. I've been carrying the bag around this week and got lots and lots of compliments! Told people of your idea to sell them on Queens Day, and they all thought the bag would be sould out in no time. So maybe i'll try to make some before the 30th of april.

Just curious, how did you end up in Amsterdam? You're not Dutch, are you?

....is it squishy or did you add something to it to make it stand up a bit more(carboard sandwiched in?)thanks..and sorry again..I looked an  looked and did not see anything.....

allisonwonderland, Scandibird is right about the reinforced plactic (could not find the right word myself)  The original shopping bag is made out of some sort of weaved plastic with an extra layer of plastic on it. The material is pretty sturdy so my bag didn't need any cardboard. The inside has a lining of some sweet striped fabric, just for the looks and because the plastic fabric is kind of rough on your hands - it feels more comfortable now.

why don't you crafty hipsters read Dutch?

Jipster, you're right... not dutch. Norwegian really, but lived in England for a long time too. Boyfriend got transferred here (works for Epson in Van der Madeweg). Have been mostly crafting and also done some freelance work since I've been here.

Hey, we should go for a crafty biertje!!  Wink

wow, it's wonderful that you're able to sell your things, imagine it feels great to earn money with what you like doing best. I know the Geboortewinkel, its just around the corner, well, almost, from where i live. I'll have a look when I'm around.

i wanted to say thank you for the awesome tutorial! i didn't think i could make a bag like this but you made it so easy!! here is what i did with it:

front of first "onion bag"

back of bag (notice i added a pocet on the back)

and the inside (i also added a pocket to the inside)

and here's the front and back of the second bag:

i added a pocket to both the front and the back of this bag as well as the inside. this one is lined in yellow felt. for some reason the picture wouldn't load, but it basically looks the same as the other except i stitched around the top of this one.

both bags are made out of recycled onion bags and have extra long straps so you can wear them with the strap across your chest like a messenger bag (and no, they don't smell like onions except when you first iron them.  Wink in fact, the one i've been carrying smells like spearmint gum!)
