Wow ... step-by-step ... and with a fabulous knuckle model, too!

Karen

This is a great bag tutorial. This bag looks more sensible than any I've seen so far. Would make a nice gift (and wrapping) for Christmas!
Thanks!

Pam just told us on her blog that you have a blog! I am so excited!!! I love your books and patterns.

Thanks for the bag tutorial!

Now I'm going to go add you to my bloglist! I'll be visiting more often!!

Looks like this bag is a hit! I don't know how you figure this stuff out, you're like a folding genius!

amy

So happy that Pam pointed out your blog. I'm in love with your fat sack! Thanks for sharing it with us. I believe these might land under the Christmas tree for some LUCKY recipients this year. :-)

Jackie

I love this bag and I do use reusable bags for my shopping. I think I can definitely personalize my bags by making my own. I love it!! By the way, we love Raisin Bran Crunch too!!

happy zombie

She with the finger on the pulse the quilting world (Pam) led me to your blog. Love it. LOVE your patterns. Love your new fab (I actually made something from the little sample pack I got at Spring Market).

Even though my to-do list a mile long, I want to drop everything and make your Fat Sack bag! Thanks for the tutorial and welcome to blogland!

Laurie

I really like this bag - it's big! I need a new bag for all my Church stuff and this looks perfect. Thank you for the tut also!! Glad to find you through Pam's blog :)

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I made two of them tonight and they are wonderful! I used the remnants of the fabric and added a pocket between the straps sewn in as I sewed on the straps. Can't wait to make more! Now I wonder where those campaign signs are now?

Kim

Love this pattern!!! A project even a sewing-challenged person can handle :-) Although now that I have a Pfaff, sewing isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be. I've sent the link to my college-age daughter as well, who's always looking for economical but nice gifts to make. THANKS for sharing!

I love this bag! I am going out on my lunch break to pick up some fabric. Maybe I can make a couple for last minute Christmas gifts...

Amy @ parkcitygirl

Great bag! Right up my alley :)

kristina

Hey Terry! That bag is SO cute! I have been wanting to make some "grocery totes" for awhile, but hadn't seen anything that was just right. Very cool, I want to make one tonite! It'd be a nice distraction from all the Christas prep that really needs to get done, thank you!

Michele

This bag was so easy to make. Your tutorial is the bomb! Thanks for sharing. One of the first quilts I ever made was your "Cheese and Crackers." I'm a big fan!

Tina

Ohhh I know exactly what I am doing tomorrow your tut is awesome THANKYOU!!!!!!!

mary Ann

I made your bag yesterday and I just love it. My head is swimming with ideas - can't wait to make more. Thanks for the tutorial.

Erika

Just made a bag following your tutorial...love it :) Perfect for groceries as well as toting quilts to show off ;) look forward to more fun tutorials/patterns in the future. Thank you for taking the time to share your talent with us :)

If you have only regular weight cotton fabric, you can fuse craft weight pellon onto your yard before you cut it. Makes a good, stiff bag with plenty of body. I used Pellon Craft weight that is 45" wide and have a lovely fashion bag. This is a great Tutorial. Thanks so much.

Creative Triplet Mom

What a great idea. Thanks for a great tutorial. Will have to drag out my sewing machine to attempt to make these.

Charlene

That bag is great and what a good job for a tutorial. Understood everything right away. I'm off to make a few.

T Hartman

Love this pattern. Have made 4 for myself and 2 for my mom (who needs more, darn, a trip to fabric store, LOL). I have been going to closeout portion of store and making with $1/yd home decor fabric to stand up to the long-term use. Amazing how much stuff can fit into one of these.

Lisa

I love this bag!!! Thank you so much for sharing it. I can't seem to stop making them :)

april

i visited a quilt shop today that had this bag hanging as a sample of what you could do with some gorgeous home dec (joel dewberry, maybe?) fabric. this particular fabric was far too gorgeous to cut into for my first try, but this bag went so easy that i'll make a hundred more! i think they'll make nice christmas gift bags. the wrapping will be a present in itself!

i think for the next one i'll use a contrasting fabric for the bag bottom.

Oh how gorgeous! Love the detailing.

FANTASTIC, what a cool design and a great excuse to use up all of those leftover scraps. Thank you sooo much.

Found you via Pinterest, and am so happy to see this tutorial in easy to understand terms! I am not a veteran seamstress, or even a beginner, but I'm finding so much that I'm willing to start trying, including this bag! I hate using plastic at the grocery, but I can't bring myself to pay for the ugly reusable bags there. This is much better.

I really enjoyed this great post and you are very talented and interesting. I really appreciate this excellent post.

Debi K

Saw this on Pinterest and have now made 3. I'm hooked. So easy and the tutorial was great. Thanks for sharing.

Me estoy encontrando tanto que estoy dispuesto a empezar a tratar, incluyendo este bolso! No me gusta el uso de plástico en el supermercado, pero yo no me atrevo a pagar por las bolsas reutilizables feas allí. Esto es mucho mejor.

Jenny

Great tutorial and what an ingenious design with the bottom pleat! Because I burn my fingers when ironing quarter inch folds, I cut my straps five inches wide to make the folding and ironing easier and more accurate, and to get straps one and a quarter inches wide as per the original design. (Thus: fold in half lengthwise and iron, then open up; fold in edges in to center and iron; fold in half and iron). This bag pattern is going to quickly eat up my home dec stash. (Maybe it's time to buy some more fabric!)

Thank you, Terry!

Anita

Clever and cute! I like using plastic canvas to stiffen the bottom of bags like this. It's lightweight, sturdy, crease-free, easy to cut straight, won't get soggy in case of a spill, and can be washed if necessary.

Theresaaross

I use canvas bags instead of plastic all the time!! This is going to be my weekend project!!! :)

Sandi

I said to a cashier just last week. Life is short, why carry anything but a cute bag?! :) Now I can design my own! Thank you

Kulsum

I was always wondering how to make the triangle fold at the side of the bag , I even saved up an old bag for sample which I was going to open up . but Thank you for the simplest tutorial I will try and make one now

Amy

I am excited to try this for Christmas this year! Love how clear the instruction steps were--Thank you!

Gift Wine Bags

Simple but useful, it is totally perfect as I planed to bring bottle of wines in our rest house this coming Christmas imagine how many bottles I can put there, a little bit decoration it will become more epic.

Samantha Nielson

I really like this bag, I was wondering if I could put this post along with your link in my newspaper that I publish every week here in Island Park Idaho (Island Park Journal)

Angela Sherwood

Thank you for the free tutorial, I wrote down how to do it and in one day i made four, I will be using them for shopping and sending some out for gifts, Plus i will also use some cotton fabric with fusible vinyl on in case it rains or snows.

JoAn GODFREY

i like to use plastic canvas in the bottom of bags. stronger than foam core and won't break as easy.

Mary

I found you via Pinterest and think this is a really cute project. I'm wondering if it would work to sew it out of oilcloth. Thoughts?

Terry

This bag would be great using oilcloth - but I would turn under the handle ends and skip the double layer on the bottom.

Thank you for the great directions, I made a bright shopping bag with cute sunflower material, just love it. The square bottom is just awesome.

I used this tutorial to make teacher gifts this year and they turned out awesome! Thanks so much for taking the time to make it!
