Making A Reusable Shopping Bag

The tutorial for the shopping bag can be found here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Changes made:
  • The fabric and lining are cut 20 to 21" by the width of the fabric.
  • The handles remain 4" by the width of the fabric.
  • The bags are now interfaced with a heavier craft interfacing. The last one, I used fusible fleece.
  • When I box the bottom of the bag (called gusset) I cut the triangles off but I did leave them in and folded to the bottom for a long time. The choice is yours.
Have fun making these bags. Once you get the hang of it, they are quick to make.
