There are several tutorials out there for the folded shopping bag that I just had to try my hand at my own design. I have created this to match my extend-a-handbags as an addition to the handbags. This one is a must have on those long shopping trips during the holiday season.
This one was made for my sister in-law to match the extend-a-handbag i made for her last year. You can see the Extend-A-Handbag here.
When closed up it measures about 10 inches long. You can have this bag be much smaller but I used the same fabric for this one as I did the extend-A-Handbag with is a heavy fabric.
