I saved these links for fabric shopping bags some time ago. Now seemed the right time to have a shot at making them.
First up I made some bags from some fabric you may remember from earlier projects.
For these I used this tutorial, and they are made with just one layer of fabric. They were made using the overlocker almost exclusively (except for the final seam on the french seamed bottom).
Then I made these two bags as Christmas presents. The darker one is for my mother, the lighter one for my KK for Andrew's family Christmas.
These are made using two layer of fabric, and the birdie applique (inspired by this) is made from the same fabric as the lining fabric. I used this tutorial for these.
I would really like to have a go at this bag soon.
