Thanks for all the kind words. I haven't visited this thread in a while so I'm late to answer your question jloveg, but the measurements for the cut out pieces are:

front and back of the bag - 13 inches across at the top, 17 at the bottom, 12 inches from top to bottom

Side panels - 3 inches across the top, 5 inches across the bottom,  12 inches from top to bottom
Pocket is about 10 inches wide, 8 inches long.

bottom of the bag is 4.5 inches by 17 inches.

The strap and flap sizes are up to you.

I thought I'd add pictures of some more bags that I made following this pattern. They were for a commission for a shop in NYC (Sweet Charity in the Park Slope area).

If bottom of the bag is 4 1/2 inches wide but the side panels are  five inches across at the bottom I don't know how they match up when you sew them together...is the the side panel suppose to hang over or is the side panel bottom also suppose to be 4 1/2 inches so they line up perfect.Thanks I'm stuck

Good point. Yes, the side panels should be 4 1/2 inches as well. I think I did 5 inches the first time I made one and then 4 1/2 inches the other times. You're right though, the measurements can be whatever you like, just make sure they match up with the pieces next to them!

Thank you so much.  Two of my best friends just announced to me that they are both pregnant... and one of them I only have 19 days to make things for because he's only going to be in the country for a week and he's got to leave... w/ all the things I'm making I certainly wouldn't want to ship everything to London.

how big should I make the inside pocket based on the measurements you gave above?

That is such a cool bag, and it's one of the finest examples of recycling I've seen in ages. Love it!

Oodles of bag making supplies!

I'm new here.  Love the site!!! I'm gonna try this. Couple questions: the measurements you listed before, is that finished or fabric measurements?  Do you prefer fusible interfacing or the sew-in type???  I will definetly share my finished masterpiece.  Happy Holidays!!!
