Just adding to the pile of the singlet-style shopping bags made from the now famous tutorial here on craftster. I've made a few of these but this is my favourite one to date as it's the first one not just made from random fabrics, I picked these out especially for a friend's Christmas present. The bag is lined with the same fabric that the outside pocket is made from.

I also made the coffee cuff using two layers of a kind of sweatshirt-y fabric from my stash as insulation and a printed cotton on the outside, with elastic thread to make it adjustable and some buttons from my enormous button hoarde. I really like how it turned out, I just made a pattern from a Starbucks cardboard version and it was such a quick and easy gift. I'm going to make one for myself next. Here are both items, folded and unfolded.. any C/C much appreciated! Smiley

So cute!

Thanks everyone! Smiley

The tutorial is located here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0 , it's really great, I was able to follow it when I was new to sewing and still use it every time I make one of these bags with no complaints. I love making these bags for other people, and generally I hear that cashiers compliment them as well, which is nice!!

Nice job.  I've been wanting to try coffee cuffs, I even bought a bunch of cool fat quarters to use.  It's on my "list".  Yours turned out great.  I gave out a bunch of the shopping bags for Christmas and everyone loved them.  I didn't put the pocket on them though, I just made a quick drawstring pouch to stuff them in.  I gave three to my stepmom and she called back raving about them and "ordered" three more.  Love your fabrics!
