Reusable Grocery Bag

This is the sample I made of the reusable grocery shopping bag I'm making for Christmas presents.  I found the tutorial here, and I'm glad I made up a sample one.  The big things I learned are: 
1) don't worry about topstitching the handles
2) pin a LOT
3) match, match, match and pin handle seams (my anal retentiveness attention to detail demands it)

The coolest thing about this, for me anyways, is that you use an actual grocery bag to make the pattern.  Pretty neat.  Look for multiples of these in cute designer fabrics sometime in the next 58 days or so.
