I am a beginner and was getting so frustrated with other sewing tutorials that were unclear and convoluted. I can tell you have taught before because your videos are awesome and your technique is so polished. You're my favorite sewing Queen! Reply Gwen Smith says: May 7, 2019 at 3:48 pm Very cute fabric & like the boxy shape – I think it needs handles. Reply Christine Lisi says: May 8, 2019 at 11:22 am Great tutorial, but I would like to know how to add the handles. Reply pearlgirl011 says: May 9, 2019 at 5:25 pm No handles?? Love the print. Reply Linda Jones says: May 10, 2019 at 12:48 am Do you sell your bags? Reply ssusan3 says: May 11, 2019 at 12:34 am So happy you are showing this bag it is just what I need. Thank you so much!

I want to make one right now and I think that I want to add some handles. Reply Teresa Lowry says: May 12, 2019 at 11:36 pm I love it but I think it needs handles. I think I will have to see what I can do about making this for my Mom and add handles for her to carry it. Reply Kathy Costello says: May 13, 2019 at 2:16 am Thank you! This is the best sewing tutorial I have seen. Really impressed with the pressing tips. Reply Dora Levitt says: May 13, 2019 at 2:44 am Gorgeous bag and colors, I'd love to make a tote bag like that, I have 5 placemats that I'm taking apart and are already interfaced, I'm going to cut them into big squares and sew alternating colors, then top stich trimming over the seams and make a color block tote bag! 😄 Reply Jane Smith says: May 15, 2019 at 10:54 am Thanks Laura. Another wonderful tutorial. Is there any way of adding straps and converting it to a tote bag? 🌺🌺🌺 Reply Elizabeth McKay says: May 15, 2019 at 9:31 pm It's brilliant! I might add a tab in the side seam for carrying, but I love your take on zipper ends and using the he fat quarters. Thanks Laura, I'm going to make one for myself!! ❤️ Reply C LOMBARD says: May 15, 2019 at 9:47 pm Love the large size, but no handles?? Reply Rebecca S. says: May 16, 2019 at 5:00 am You have some of the best tutorials! Thank you so much. I really like that beautiful fabric. 😍 Reply Debra Lucca says: May 16, 2019 at 1:25 pm Awesome bag! Really love the fabric choices. Thanks for sharing. You are a great teacher. Reply Night Owl says: May 16, 2019 at 5:45 pm Please do a shower curtain next. The eyelets have always puzzled me. 🤔 New at sewing . Reply Charlene Kalectaca says: May 16, 2019 at 11:07 pm I LUV IT!!! 😍😍😍 I will add handy dandy straps when I attempt this. 😀 Thank you for the idea, I have TONS of fat quarters to select from. Reply Gwendolyne Jackson says: May 17, 2019 at 12:39 am Beautiful!! I love it! Reply Gwendolyne Jackson says: May 17, 2019 at 12:39 am Thanks for sharing all your ideas and for being so clear on how and what to do. 🙂 Reply Jane Goodwin says: May 18, 2019 at 12:45 am No handle? But I would certainly want a handle or straps. And maybe a pocket inside and one outside. Otherwise, I did like the way you designed it. Reply maria fonseca says: May 19, 2019 at 11:48 pm Very nice Reply small footprint says: May 21, 2019 at 8:17 am You explain so clearly. You lost me a little when you started to do the 2nd half of the zipper, but I'll pick it up when I'm doing the project…. I'd like some straps, so have to figure out how to do that. Really amazing. Reply cherry3464 says: May 21, 2019 at 9:53 am Thank you so much for sharing all your tutorials. This is a gorgeous bag. I have a planner sized 9hx7w Planner and wanted to make a pouch like this for it, but not sure what measurement should be. Can you help me? I am a new sewer.. Reply Virginia Valentin says: May 23, 2019 at 9:19 pm Yes, a large roomy storage bag. I would add removable handles with D-rings. And pockets for the small things that like to get away from me. Thanks for sharing, Laura ♥️ Reply raelenejones says: May 26, 2019 at 8:36 am Wow thank you so much for helping me make this bag. I'm an avid knitter and the bag is perfect for a large project. I haven't seen for 30 years so feeling very happy. Bless you. Reply raelenejones says: May 26, 2019 at 8:52 am Hi again. Can you please tell me what that large flat acrylic ruler you used is called. You used it when cutting through all four layers. Reply rina2012ful says: May 27, 2019 at 5:21 pm You showed the steps clearly. Thank you! Reply Nancy Cartwright says: May 29, 2019 at 3:37 am Made your bag and love it. I made it a little smaller and added handles. 💞 Reply Connie Stanley says: May 31, 2019 at 3:44 pm This is nice but it does need a handle to carry it by. Reply Ann Lange says: June 1, 2019 at 1:05 am Awesome tutorial, Laura! 😄 Reply BeatlesFanSonia says: June 4, 2019 at 3:55 am Suggestions on adding pockets to the lining and the outside of this bag! How about straps? Reply SpiritBear12 says: June 4, 2019 at 2:09 pm I think I would design some pockets and sew them onto the lining fabric before it's sewn to the rest of the bag. I think just about every one appreciates some pockets on the inside of pretty much any kind of bag for smaller items that tend to get lost on the bottom part of a large bag like that.. Also, it would be practical and very handy to put some carry handles on it. Other than those details, it's a nice large project bag. Reply 蔡榮海 says: June 6, 2019 at 7:14 pm ~~*** Reply Sally Schilling says: June 8, 2019 at 1:15 pm Love the idea about using the cardboard roll for ironing seam open! Hmmm. would love to add straps/handles to this bag… that way we could take the project w/us when traveling! but love the bag! Reply irmtraut pfabe says: June 9, 2019 at 8:11 pm I really really like it Laura well done thank you !! Reply Yvonne Henke Krautwald says: June 10, 2019 at 7:47 pm Handles? Reply Carole Groom says: June 11, 2019 at 2:14 pm Love the bag, but I would have liked handles. Reply Ruth Lamb says: June 13, 2019 at 12:37 pm Great project bag. I enjoy your videos. Thank you. Reply Jasmine el fiky says: June 14, 2019 at 1:21 am Lovely but why no handles ? Reply babeage says: June 15, 2019 at 6:00 pm Your tutorials are so helpful and inspiring. I feel like I can do just about ANYTHING after I watch your explanations! Thank you so much for your clarity and precision and easy explanations. Hoping to make a bag for my serger with this pattern. I will search to find out how to add feet, handles, and a hard bottom to the bag . So excited! Reply Tuba Abdu says: June 16, 2019 at 8:03 am God bless you. You're so useful woman and teacher to me. Thank-you so much Reply pauline fitzgerald says: June 16, 2019 at 8:07 pm Thank you so much, you have explained this so clearly making it so easy to follow. One of the best demo video's I have seen (and I have seen many!). Reply Knitnut246 Connie says: June 17, 2019 at 12:03 pm Great bag and NO handles needed. I am a sweater knitter and a sewer and it is a perfect project bag as shown. Thank you. Reply Julia Droy says: June 18, 2019 at 5:25 am Love the bag and the way you inserted the zip will defiantly try that next time I make a bag Reply Elaine Buckley says: June 18, 2019 at 4:52 pm What a great tutorial for your beautiful bag. Thank you 🌟 Reply Spyder Quilt says: June 19, 2019 at 3:05 am How do you carry a project bag with no handles? Reply warialdasue says: June 23, 2019 at 4:32 am No handles? Reply Ilan Pasler says: June 24, 2019 at 4:18 pm Amazing. I have been looking for this technique for such a long time. Bless you❤ Reply Rahat Khan says: June 25, 2019 at 6:42 pm Bag of this size needs straps for sure Reply Ilan Pasler says: June 26, 2019 at 2:01 pm Dear Laura, thank you for a great tutorial. I consider making a bigger version+handles (one as a weekender and another one for my laptop – love the boxy shape and have found the technique you preformed is no less than Genus). Do you have any formula that can help me calculating the bottom and top cutting squares? This can help me make it any size i choose. Hope i explained my self clearly (not an English speaker..). Tnx❤️ Reply Rita Reitsma says: July 2, 2019 at 5:02 am Nice, but I don't find bags very handy without shoulder straps and pockets. Love how the zipper and flat top is done. Reply Sandra McInnis says: July 8, 2019 at 12:40 am Your manner of teaching is excellent! I’ve never done a flat top on a project bag, but I will try it now! Thanks so much! Reply Florence Drattler-Gold says: July 8, 2019 at 1:24 pm Fabulous instructions – thank you Reply J Lucas says: July 16, 2019 at 9:23 pm I like this bag. Your tutorials are always so detailed and easy to follow. Thank you, Laura! Reply Karen Blackburn says: July 20, 2019 at 12:55 pm Would be great with the size tweaked suitably so it can be used to store patterns in. Different fabric for each category (skirts, tops, dresses, crafts etc) and you have attractive and practical storage which is easily pulled for each category. Many thanks and I will be cutting one out this afternoon. Reply Xerix Helix says: July 22, 2019 at 1:35 pm Great bag. Love the zipper addition. Reply Laurel of BlueDoxie Dyeworks says: July 23, 2019 at 2:26 am Most zippers don’t come 15” that I’m seeing; which would be better, 14” or 16”? Reply Romi W says: August 1, 2019 at 8:18 pm You are amazing!!! I love everything you make and your explanations are very clear!! Thanks!!! ❤️😊 Reply Caron Ward says: August 4, 2019 at 1:22 pm I LOVE your delivery! Everything follows in logical order and I'm able to sew in my mind as you're explaining. Love your style too. Always gorgeous fabrics. Many thanks.' Reply renee Johnson says: August 6, 2019 at 2:34 am Thanks so much for another great well planned tutorial! You do an awesome job with explaining each step. LOVE the color combination! Do you have another tutorial for a bag w handles? Reply Linda Lee says: August 6, 2019 at 6:36 pm I am into crochet and knitting right now……thanks Reply Gale Yawn says: August 9, 2019 at 5:27 am You are incredible! So easy to follow and such a great teacher! Reply Ginger Notturno says: August 9, 2019 at 8:35 pm no straps how do you carry it Reply Shannon Egan says: August 10, 2019 at 3:44 pm I agree, this is a great tutorial. I would make several of these if there was an option for handles/straps. Inner or outer pockets would be nice for customization as well. Reply brenda perkins says: August 10, 2019 at 8:05 pm I love you. You are such a great teacher Reply Stephanie Pagán says: August 12, 2019 at 12:06 pm I just finished doing this bag and it turned out awesome! I got a little tripped up with attaching the fabric to the zipper and had to redo it a few times but I love the finished project! Thanks so much for the awesome video tutorial. Reply AEmamdee1757 says: August 14, 2019 at 9:44 pm Beautiful! Reply Jeanne Horner says: August 15, 2019 at 4:40 am Is there a way to add straps to this bag or would you need to insert the zipper differently to add the handles Reply Rami Devi says: August 20, 2019 at 9:44 am Very professional look thanks for sharing Reply Amelia says: August 30, 2019 at 2:00 am When you sew the center line are all 4 fabrics stacked? Reply Peggy Muldoon says: September 1, 2019 at 12:21 am Thank you! Really understand & enjoy your method of teaching!! Reply Arlene Devroy says: September 7, 2019 at 10:12 pm Handles would have been nice, but otherwise a nice bag. Reply Simona Hurban says: September 14, 2019 at 4:40 pm You are great! Just love your video Reply April Waller says: September 21, 2019 at 12:46 am How do you get into this fat quarter club? Reply Maxine Neale says: September 28, 2019 at 1:12 pm Thank you I love your work. Your directions are also very easy to follow❤️ Reply Herr Mondlicht says: October 14, 2019 at 2:34 am Very nice lura. X Reply Ramesh Dhankhar says: October 16, 2019 at 6:50 am Givemagerment Reply Jackie Lynn says: October 17, 2019 at 1:39 pm You are so cute! Thank you for this tutorial. Question, is it possible to add foam interfacing and handles? Reply Shantheri Kamath says: October 18, 2019 at 4:40 am Lovely bag….made one for my Mom. Reply A Dixon says: October 21, 2019 at 10:41 pm I think you gave the wrong measurements at the beginning. You said 22 inch by 15 which looked a bit long and thin to me but when the 2 halves are sown together say they should measure about 21 and a half by 17 1/2 so I presume it should have been 22×18 originally which is more like a fat quarter dimension. Reply angela arena says: October 25, 2019 at 10:37 pm Laura I’ve always wanted to make a nice big bag like this but never found an easy and professional way the top and bottom were made, and easy to follow now I have thanks👏 I just like to know if handles can be put on? Reply angela arena says: November 6, 2019 at 2:42 am Hi Laura I’m new to your videos and enjoy them immensely, iv just completed this bag you made for daughter but I put long handles on mine everyone at sewing classes luv it,and if I do say myself it came out pretty awesome.Wish I knew how to post to you 😞 Thanks for sharing your knowledge 👏 Reply Laurie Mullins says: January 2, 2020 at 4:33 pm Hi Laura, Love this bag and have already made 3 of them. I have been making picnic quilts for each of my grandkids and have made one of these bags for to put each quilt in. They can keep this in the trunks of their cars always ready for a quick picnic or should you need a blanket in your car. Love how easy all your tutorials are to follow. Thanks Reply Emmy Nelson says: January 15, 2020 at 4:44 pm Laura I made this when I had a knitting project (poncho) that was too big for the bags I already have. It turned out great and I'm now going to make more as gifts. Your directions are always so easy to follow — thank you! Reply Monika Perry says: January 17, 2020 at 9:15 pm Great bag, if I make it I would add pull tabs and handles Reply jodie hemmingsen says: February 5, 2020 at 2:09 am Love love love!!!! You are a great teacher! Please keep up the great work 🧵 Reply Brenda Hamrick says: February 12, 2020 at 3:41 am Normally I have no problem following your tutorials but this one was a bit fast and difficult for me.😢 Reply Debra Kohler says: February 16, 2020 at 5:27 am Hi Laura, I've been watching you for some time now and want to thank you for the clear and precise sewing videos you make. I look forward to each and every one of them. Reply Collette Landwer says: February 19, 2020 at 9:38 pm Great tutorial. That fabric is lovely Reply A Dixon says: February 25, 2020 at 11:19 am I've made 4 of these now and added pockets, handles and little grab tabs either side of the zip. For the pockets I just took a 10 inch square piece of fabric, folded it in half right sides facing, sewed a seam on 2 of the edges, turned it right side round, ironed it ironing in the unsewn edge so it looks like the other edges then sewed this on to the bag inner before you started sewing the bag together with the long edge facing the top. You just sew the sides and bottom 2mm from the edge which finishes off the unsewn seam (don't put that seam to the top.) I also sewed a line of thread from top to bottom part way along the pocket dividing the pocket in to 2 pockets. For handles 2 of my bags had plastic/ leather handles with ready made holes at either end that I sewed on the outers before sewing the bag together, the other 2 had straps made from approx 3cm wide webbing tape that I stitched to either side from the very bottom seam of the bag approx 6 inches from the left edge to just below the line where the top corners are cut off (so the flat finished top of the bag has no handle attached to it), leave a free loop for the handle then back down the same side of the outer 6 inches from the right edge down to the bottom edge. Repeat on the other side. Also do this before sewing the bag together. Brilliant bags. Thanks for the idea. Reply Beth B says: February 25, 2020 at 3:29 pm Thank you for making a bag with top squared corners. I want to make bags for storing seasonal clothes & handbags. I’ll line them up side by side on the top shelf of my closet, SO PRETTY. I’ll quilt my pieces to give them more body and add small side handle loops to make it easier to handle them. That fabric is gorgeous plus what a wonder tip for cutting that fabric. Im a new sewer and have been looking for a practical useful project. Great Christmas gift idea as well💜 Reply Sherry Simpson says: February 25, 2020 at 10:55 pm No straps???? Reply Sue Nuckles says: February 29, 2020 at 7:09 am It's a cute bag, but I think I'd add a handle. Reply Patricia Elston says: February 29, 2020 at 10:42 pm Thank you! Awsome! Reply frenchstamper says: March 2, 2020 at 10:47 am love the bag, but some kind of handle or hold the side would have made it extra special. Reply Patricia A says: March 3, 2020 at 8:20 am Love the bag and the size, but I need a handle of some sort as I would be carrying it from my car with other stuff. Might do a loop strap for one of the top ends when the seam is sewn. Reply Norah McPhee says: March 5, 2020 at 6:06 pm What a lovely lot of materials making a great knitting bag flower, but if your daughter is anything like me, a set of handles needed for when our knitting becomes portable and goes where we go. I love all crafts because i was lucky enough to have a wonderful and talented lady called my mum, who taught me everything and of course the proper way to finish things off. The closing of the last hole would be the only thing that mum would have done differently from yourself, but it is so nice to see someone take such a keen need for things not just to be purposeful, but for them to be finished properly inside and out. Your daughter is a very lucky young lady to have such a talented person in her life to call mum. Thank you flower for a great video on a decent size bag/ Crafty hugs from Norah, Central Scotland Reply Debra Dudney says: March 6, 2020 at 3:27 am Genious!
