If you know me, you know I love bags. I found these directions but just like I do with my cooking and changing recipes. I did that with the bag as well. Maybe the size given in the instructions works if you are putting the bag in your car but I don't do that and it was too long for me. Also I didn't have double sided fusible fleece so I used some quilting batting that I had and made my handles a different way.
I have not yet tried to make the little pouch that the bag can be stored in but want to try that.
Here is one of the bags that I made and I do think it is cute. Don't tell but the next time I am going to make the handles a bit further apart.
