Your bag is great! I made one similar from an online tutorial and it also folds into it's own pocket. I really like that it folds up and fits nicely in my purse.

It looks like a great bag. I usually make my grocery bags smaller. If you end up with too large a bag, then they fill it even more. Some baggers and checkers do not like reusable bags because - for them - plastic is more convenient. Therefore, to ¨get back at you¨, some clerks and baggers overfill your reusable bags until you can barely move them, then sneer at you when you mention that its too full. I have never gotten into an argument with a bagger yet, but I remain pleasant with them. It makes them look even more churlish. There have been a few that were difficult to smile and remain pleasant to, but it was worth doing.

I like this bag for the roominess and the straps. I really enjoy making BurdaStyle patterns and I also don't like the whole taping together of the pattern but once done, everything is usually a snap.

I really like the shape of your bag and the pretty fabric you chose.
