You make it look so easy!  I think I have my last gift for my mother-in-law figured out now.  Thanks for posting such a great, well-written tutorial.  (Oh, and I'll probably make a few for myself, too, and maybe my own mother, and sister . . . and anyone else I can think of.)

Wow. This looks great. I bookmarked the tutorial so I can try it out later. I have so many plastic bags right now because I keep forgetting to bring a bag. With this I can always keep a bag in my purse. Thanks so much!

I love, love, love this bag.  I book marked it so I can give it a try once I finish up my nephew-to-be's baby quilt.  Maybe I'll have time to make a matching bag like this one for SIL's diaper bag.  Wonderful tutorial.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

I followed your tut and made one of these last night.  It turned out so cute and only took me about 2 hours and I am a really slow sewer.  I am going to make a few of these for stocking stuffers.

Thanks for a great tut!

heart, you come up with some of the coolest stuff!  i recently got a tub full of fabric that belonged to a friend who is now in a nursing home.  will use this cool tute to make bags for her girls (dtr, d-i-l's, g-dtr, niece).  one for me, too.  another terrific use for the box of zippers i have taking up space.

thanks!  off to hit "this rocks"

Thank you for this tute! I made one last night for a gift for a friend.  I shall add photos once her birthday has passed and I can blog about it without ruining the surprise for her (since she does check my blog).  

I added a wee zip & pocket to the front panel so that the tulle vege bags (to be sewn up tonight) can be stored in there.  To allow for these small bags I made the front zip up pocket piece a bit larger and gave it a wee gusset with Jordy corners. Ok, so that possibly sounded more confusing than it needed to.  It's not totally square, but looks great IMO.

Thanks again, shall be back with photos in the next week once I've posted it all to my friend (I can't believe I am actually going to have it finished & sent before her birthday - that's a first for me this year LOL).

Thanks, heartofmary!  Once again, you are so generous with sharing your patterns and tutes.  I will definitely try this one.   Smiley
