Here is my finished bag...all folded up.
Unfolded and ready to use.
Filled up with boxes. I have to be truthful, it is almost exactly the same size as a plastic grocery bag with the added bonus that you can fold this one up in your purse. I see making more of these with the fabric I have around the house. I estimate that this bag cost less than $3 to make since the outside fabric was about $1 and the lining also $1. The button and elastic were from my sewing stash so...almost free.
Definitely worth the $6 cost of the pattern.
